This Spring/Summer 09, Nike continues its mission of making sports and innovation street-worthy andÂ draws itsÂ inspiration and creative direction fromÂ the 20th anniversary of its own Nike All Conditions Gear (ACG).
Drawing further inspiration from the colours and materials of outdoor obsession, The Sportswear Design Team stays connected to the roots of ACG, using a palette of bright colours, elemental graphics and new materials. Key pieces for the season are the Cortez shoe and the Eugene Track Jacket.
Recognised by its 26-degree chevron, front zips, and rib that adorns the collar, cuffs, and waist, the Eugene Track Jacket has been remastered with a 100% recycled polyester exterior and a 100% organic cotton inner layer andÂ mixes the iconic colours of Nike’s heritage (Orange Blaze, Sport Red, Varsity Purple) with the seasonal pop of the ACG palette (Neon Turquoise and Rave Pink).
The Cortez gets an update using Flywire technology, which fuses ultra strong, paper-thin cables intoÂ a one-piece upper. Available in original leather and suede/nylon, it retainsÂ its trademark shape, oversized swoosh andÂ herringbone sole.
Also big will be the Nike’s logo Sportswear Tee, while footwear sees a revisiting of iconic prints and patterns like the Safari and Elephant prints, and a retooling of the Dunk for women in the form of the Skinny Dunk.
