In his fifth season, Jun Takahashi has once again harboured his technical and visual expertise to create the Nike X Undercover Gyakusou Autumn/Winter ‘12 collection.

Harmonising the capacity of mind, body and nature, the pieces tell the story of Japanese culture while still facilitating the male’s running needs. It is this infusion of eastern premise that is evidently the key to such thought out active wear.

Combining sport and style is something Nike has long prided itself upon… A feat that remains categorically true in this display. In palette’s of slate grey, rich purple and deep red the collection follows a methodic autumnal spirit – one that is as visually stimulating as it is formidable.

Steering away from the mundane sporting aesthetic, Gyakusou proves that there is meaning – and purpose – behind the incarnation products with such thought out mannerisms.
