The Nike x Undercover Gyakusou Spring 2014 Collection visually articulates this yin-yang with contrasting colors and materials.

Takahashi Works closely with Nike’s Apparel Innovation Design Team , its also exposed to the latest advanced technologies informed by body-led research. The resulting pattern appears on everything from the men’s Sweat Map Jacket, Dri-FIT Sweat Map 3/4 Top, and Dri-FIT Sweat Map Tank to the women’s Dri-FIT Sweat Map S/S Top. Sweat Map ventilation on the base layers and jacket are also designed to perfectly align, maximizing performance benefits.

The emotional and physical dichotomy of running, meanwhile, is represented throughout the collection by color blocking, gradation and text. In the men’s collection, the season’s hues are paired with urban grays. In the women’s collection, they are combined with neutrals and each other, with the occasional inclusion of a tonal python print. Duality is also embodied in  Dri-FIT Graphic Tees, via conflicting words (like Love and Hate).   These performance textiles form additional top layers, such as the men’s Lightweight Jacket and Dri-FIT Wide Tank as well as the women’s Convertible Lightweight Jacket and Dri-FIT Tank. The collection’s bottoms also provide runners with a comprehensive array of battle attire. Men can select between the Dri-FIT 5-Inch Woven Short and the shorter, lined Dri-FIT Woven Raceday Short—or opt for the Dri-FIT 3/4 Tights. Women’s choices include unlined Dri-FIT Woven Raceday Shorts and Dri-FIT Long Tights.

Nike Lunar Speed AXL. The sneaker’s dual-tone, lightweight, breathable mesh uppers are texturized by tonal python embossed leather, while the midsoles feature soft, yet responsive Lunarlon cushioning. A rubber outsole with flex grooves for traction and a natural range of motion facilitates a better run and reiterates Takahashi’s hypothesis: In the battle of running, the athlete always emerges victorious.
