UNDERCOVER and Nike deliver a fresh collaboration for the Holiday season. This capsule draws inspiration from the Japanese martial art, Kendo. The collection will feature top and bottom pieces in the form of a two-in-one parka jacket as well as a pair of two-in-one pants.
Removable panels on both pieces are what makes this collection unique. The “NUZ4301” parka will feature an outer layer vest with four cargo pockets and wearers will be able to remove it via zippers at the center and around the shoulders. An oval-shaped translucent opening, dubbed a “watch window” can be seen at the sleeve which allows you to see the time while also protecting your timepiece. The pants will feature a two-in-one design, utilizing the zippers around the knees to transform the legs into shorts. Finalizing the details for both garments is the aspect of waterproof materials with the comfort of a nylon interior.
UNDERCOVER and Nike’s two-piece Holiday capsule can be purchased at the UNDERCOVER’s website with the parka retailing for ¥78,650 JPY ($756 USD) and the pants at ¥31,460 JPY ( $302 USD).
After years of working together, collaborating on different sneaker projects, Drake and Nike have officially announced a new collaborative partnership called NOCTA.
Following Drake’s Certified Lover Boy merch, NOCTA represents Drake’s nocturnal creative process as well as the streetwear scenes of Toronto, London and Paris. In addition to announcing the collection, the Toronto native penned an open letter explaining his inspiration for the project.
This moment is full circle for me.
I mean, growing up Nike was everything. It felt like every shoe I wanted, every athlete I liked, everything I owned was Nike. It didn’t mean anything unless it had a Swoosh.
I remember watching all these athletes repping Nike — each doing the unthinkable — and how inspiring it was. I always felt like there was an opportunity for Nike to embrace an entertainer the same way they had athletes. I thought about how crazy it would have been and what it would have meant for an artist to have a flagship Nike deal.
NOCTA is a realization of all these thoughts and everything I had hoped for — from the culture it’s rooted in to the product and, most important, to the partnership and scale that allows me to share it with the world.
NOCTA is about creating something for people on the move. People who want functional, comfortable fits that are adaptable from one environment to the next.
But as much as it’s about what we make, it’s also about a mindset: an unforgiving drive, a relentlessness. Characterized by the type who are on the road all day, all night — the grinders, the hard workers — trying to accomplish their goals and taking no short cuts.
That mindset also includes loyalty and team. Whether you are in Toronto, London or Paris, there’s this uniform look — Nike Tech Fleece, the gloves, the hat — and it has a real team feel. I wanted to take a piece of that culture that I grew up with, that school of thought, and bring the best to it. With NOCTA, we were trying to make the hardest jacket, the hardest tracksuit, the hardest gloves. Just the best of that world.
This opportunity is something that I’ve been waiting on for a really long time. To be associated with the highest level possible — that was always my goal. We put in a lot of hard work, a lot of man and woman hours, during the last two years. To see it all coming to fruition starts an exciting new chapter in my life.
Head over to the NOCTA website for more info and expect this collaborative effort to release at Nike on December 18.
Levi’s has launched Levi’s SecondHand in the U.S. which is a new buyback program tailored to be more eco-friendly. This new program will allow customers to receive gift cards of equal value for trade-in used pieces. Clothes go into a cleaning process once they’re received and then can be repurposed for sale on the company’s website.
“Repurposing and repairing clothes require minimal additional energy input, no water, and no dyes to make more jeans. Buying a used pair of Levi’s jeans through SecondHand saves approximately 80 percent of the CO2 emissions and 700 grams of waste compared to buying a new pair of Levi’s jeans.”
Chief Marketing Officer of Levi’s Jennifer Sey
Levi’s brought E-commerce tech start-up TROVE in to handle the logistics of the operation as well as the backend. TROVE founder and CEO Andy Ruben expressed excitement for how implementing an infrastructure for second-hand clothing was “the single biggest move” that a supply chain could embody for better sustainability.
Visit Levi’s SecondHand at the company’s website. Prices range from $30 – $150 USD.
The United States’ presidential election is right around the corner and Virgil Abloh is doing his part in encouraging voter turnout with his “Swing State” T-shirts. The tees come courtesy of his canary—yellow label and will consist of 13 states in total. The tees feature the “I Voted” graphic on the front which looks like the stickers the polls give out once you vote. The back of the shirts denote the respective state with a blue shade on the map of the US.
The 13 “swing states” represented by each shirt are Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Michigan, Nevada, New Mexico, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Texas, Virginia and Wisconsin. These are the key states that Democratic nominee Joe Biden need to win in order to beat the current President.
Made-in-Mexico tee and constructed of 50% upcycled cotton and 50% recycled polyester, these tees are constructed from five plastic bottles and .26 pounds of fabric scraps which saves 63 gallons of water. Also of note, 100% of the proceeds from each tee will be donated to Virgil Abloh’s Post-Modern Scholarship Fund, aiding Black students in their creative careers.
