Innovating a New Aesthetic: Nike x Pedro Lourenço

In a design collaboration like nothing seen before it, Nike will present a new women’s training collection created in partnership with Brasilian designer Pedro Lourenço. Inspired by an emerging desire for luxury in sport performance gear, the collection presents a modern interpretation of athletic apparel for women. Like all Nike product, the Nike x Pedro Lourenço Collection aims to amplify the athlete’s confidence and help her achieve her fitness goals.

Designed to transition from workouts to everyday wear, the collection represents a play on proportions and layering. The result is a curated selection of Nike Women’s leading innovations reinvented through new materials and detailing. The Nike x Pedro Lourenço Collection includes three looks and two footwear options designed to be worn together to create styles functional for the street and the gym. 

Throughout the collection, Lourenço employs materials that perform, yet also are soft and feminine. For example, the collection features a neoprene jacket that is crafted with ‘60s-era couture tailoring techniques. Despite this ode to the past, the jacket features present-day technology, as Dri-FIT mesh pulls sweat away from the skin to help keep athletes dry and comfortable. 

Lourenço also uses Nike technologies as a functional aesthetic detailing. For example, gradient flocking in black and nude colors identifies areas of enhanced breathability. The addition of a skirt panel to the training tight flatters the form, while reflective details throughout the collection help keep athletes visible at night. 

The Nike x Pedro Lourenço Collection will be available globally on Nov. 13 at NikeLab and NikeLab DSM locations in New York, Amsterdam, Berlin, London, Milan, Paris, Stockholm, Hong Kong, Shanghai, Rio and online through nike.com/nikelab.
