Louis Vuitton’s menswear style designer Kim Jones has an outlet for his expansive creativity with streetwear with which we’ll witness a full-on display of the well-received athleisure influence the designer’s known for subtly including in his work at LV. And we’re referring to his collaboration with Nike, by the way. The collaboration is a direct effort at making sportswear portable and practical. Much like Uniqlo’s famous ‘foldable’, ‘packable’ concept, NikeLab and Kim Jones brings us a no fuss capsule of sleek designs we can’t wait to get our hands on. We’re pretty much already envisioning ourselves in these super cool reversible bomber jackets and fleece lined jogger pants (all of which can be easily packed into a convenient package), whilst being the subject of envy and talk amongst our gym. Well okay, that may be taking things a little too far, but with such soft fabrics and minimal seams in the garments, we wouldn’t break a sweat with this convenient range. Shoutout to Nike and Jones for the revolutionising sportswear.
Kim Jones x NikeLab Collection, USD200 – 250. Available online at nike.com.
