NikeLab x Kim Jones: Tech Fleece launches

Kim Jones and Nike’s newest collaboration focuses less on sport and more on the lifestyle sportswear for wearing on planes and trains, based on Nike’s Tech Fleece. The five piece capsule collaboration launched by NikeLab x Kim Jones includes a bomber jacket, a hoodie, a men’s crew, pant and shoe.

“Nike Tech Fleece is something that’s a really progressive fabric in terms of development…  It looks quite simple, but someone who is into technical details and a bit of a geek, like I am, about products and design, would really appreciate how that’s made, because it’s actually really a hard thing to do,” said Kim Jones of the fabric and collection.

The five piece capsule collaboration launched by NikeLab x Kim Jones includes a bomber jacket, a hoodie, a men’s crew, pant and shoe.

Travel-related features of the collection include zippered pockets, reversible pieces, packability and warmth.

This is the second release from NikeLab’s collaboration with Kim Jones, who currently serves as the Men’s Artistic Director for Louis Vuitton.

In another NikeLab collaboration, Kim Jones designed performance product for athletes on the go. This Tech Fleece launch focuses on the travel component of an athleisure lifestyle.

Price points range from $200 for pants to $350 for the bomber jacket.

The collection is available now online and at select NikeLab locations.
