Nikelab gets an update with Stone Island, creating another flawless collection.
Newly released from NikeLab is a collaborative collection alongside Stone Island. The partnership is a celebration of Nike’s Windrunner Jacket, which was created by Nike’s first apparel designer in 1978, and remains to be a track and field staple in 2015.
Getting an update courtesy of Stone Island, Nike are benefiting from the engineering and garment-dyeing techniques that the Italian label has become renowned for.
The all-new Windrunner is crafted from Mussola Gommata fabric, which is formed by bonding lightweight woven cotton to a polyurethane film. Additionally, Stone Island’s Nylon Metal fabric is featured on the body, adding a characteristic shimmer to the jacket’s exterior
They’ve also got footwear covered, via a special make up of the Nike Koth Ultra Mid SI sneaker-hiker hybrid. Partly inspired by the Nike Air Mowabb, the rugged, weatherproof shoe also benefits from the use of Stone Island’s Mussola Gommata fabric, while also featuring an all-weather outsole, phylon midsole and flexible ankle support.
Rounding out the release is a dust bag crafted from a mixture of Stone Island’s Nylon Metal and a cotton-nylon canvas blend.
The NikeLab x Stone Island collaboration will be available from December 17 from Stone Island flagship stores, as well as Stoneisland.com, select NikeLab retailers and from Nike online.
