In the wake of all the exposure, after the dust has settled on previous collections, and as we await next season's product at the end of another year, it's the ideal time to consider Gyakusou in a broader context. Alongside some of the iconic imagery created around the brand, David Hellqvist examines a collaboration between Nike and Undercover that has been successful in design, performance, and sales terms ever since its arrival in 2010.

Words

Nike's latest Gyakusou collection was released yesterday. The sub-brand has weathered some of the initial trend driven hype and seems to have found its footing within the running landscape, offering highly functional, great looking pieces. This collection is one of the strongest yet; there's a great mix of colour and tonal fabrics, and the footwear has evolved nicely as well.

Words

The latest Gyakusou collection is now available at select retailers and Nike stores. This spring is the first time they've made running shoes I've liked, while the rest of the collection is just as strong as usual. The mix of fabrics and the color palette are both particularly nice.

Ryan's recent post highlighted some of the up-close-and-personal elements found in the new fall line produced by Nike and Jun Takahashi's Gyakusou International Running Association. Thanks to Honeyee there's now a broader look at the garments and shoes themselves, alongside plenty of behind the scenes imagery from the recent Running Monks campaign, and lots to read; if you read Japanese. I personally think this has been a consistently well executed and interesting collaboration, and I this third season might well be my favourite yet.
