Nike x Undercover ‘GYAKUSOU’ Holiday 2012 Collection


Tomorrow sees the arrival of the Holiday 2012 Nike x Undercover Gyakusou collection to the UK. Here are some beautifully shot photographs showcasing the collection.

There’s two things to look forward to with every Gyakusou drop; one is the collection itself, which never fails to exceed expectations, and the other is the promotional imagery to accompany the collection, which is always stunning. This season is no exception, with the images showcasing the Undercover crew running through some breathtaking scenery in the new collection, which is equally breathtaking (if you are as much of a nerd for tech. running equipment as we are).

This season sees the collection continue it’s efforts in stylish, lightweight running clothing as well as some beautiful interpretations of the Nike Lunar Speed Lite+ and Nike Free V3 running shoes. The collection is titled “Autumn Monks” and according to head honcho Jun Takahashi, was an attempt to reflect some of his favourite natural highlights in Nagano during this time of year, most evident in the leaf camouflage inspired by the cedar trees.

The colour palette of any Gyakusou collection is always exceptional and this season is no different with soft blues and burnt reds throughout. Expect to see this dropping in select retailers here in the UK, including oki-niEnd Clothing, 1948 and Hanon.
