The stars of the Spring 2019 collection are two lightweight, packable jackets dubbed the “Transform JKT” and “Lightweight JKT”. Both jackets are built to withstand wind and rain. Laser cut holes are placed strategically in the jackets to ensure breathability, while the soft Dri-Fit base material is designed to wick sweat away.

The innovative sets of men’s tight and women’s shorts are made of scientifically-informed knit. Consequently, seams have been reduced and compression is applied where most needed.

For footwear, the Gyakusou x Nike SP19 collection offers the Nike Vaporfly 4% in deep burgundy knit, while the Nike Pegasus Turbo will arrive in variations of earthy green and yellow.

The Gyakusou line is a collaboration between Jun Takahashi, founder of Japanese brand Undercover, and Nike. Takahashi, himself an avid runner, created the Gyakusou line with Nike to offer runners gear that is both functional and stylish. It’s also suitable for the fashion-forward crowd who seek more comfortable clothing and footwear.

The Gyakusou x Nike SP19 collection will be available in Singapore from February 28 at Dover Street Market and Nike.com.
