The Clothing for Tennis' First 2020 Major is Designed to Keep Players Cool

NikeCourt Melbourne Collection 2020 8

The patterns throughout the men and women's apparel were created by Australian-raised artist Cassie Byrnes, who finds inspiration through the tropical beauty of North Queensland, translating it onto watercolor paper through pigment inks and gouache. "I start with a considered palette and story," she says. "Then I play with mark-making, texture and composition to capture the essence and spirit of the theme."

The year’s opening slam in Melbourne boasts a raucous atmosphere, drawing an annual attendance of more than 700,000. Melbourne also tracks the hottest temperatures of any of tennis’ four majors. To account for the temperatures during play, NikeCourt designers developed a knee-length bodysuit for women as a baselayer. This garment is informed by Atlas body-mapping to identify the areas that tend to overheat (notably under the bra and at the neckline) and is pieced together to maximize breathability in those spaces.

A base garment serves a double purpose: Many players want to combine the cooler outfit with unique ways to present themselves on court. Athletes across the draw can select tanks, crop tops and skirts — all featuring patterns from Australian artist Cassie Byrnes — to accent their respective looks. For example, while Bianca Andreescu might choose to wear just the bodysuit, Madison Keys may layer atop a tennis skirt. The combinations between the bodysuit, the patterns and the supporting garments run a spectrum of player preferences.

The men’s apparel sublimates Byrnes’ whimsical graphics directly onto the fabrics in spots that encourage stylistic improvisation. An example is in the men’s polo, revealing the cloud pastel pattern under the collar. Other examples are more obvious, such as in the all-over pattern of the men's warm-up jacket.

The NikeCourt Melbourne collection releases globally January 13.

SHAPES is Converse’s First Genderless Apparel Collection

Converse SHAPES 1

Each individual is wearing the Converse SHAPES Bubble Crew and Triangle Front Chino in one of four sizes based on their style preference.

What if apparel was built agnostic of gender? What if its goal was to accommodate our innumerable body shapes?

These were the questions that predicated Converse’s latest, genderless apparel collection, SHAPES.

The company, committed to intelligent design, reimagines the Chuck Taylor’s position as an inclusive and unisex shoe through apparel, reflecting the needs of consumers today.

As the first of three collections to debut in 2020, Converse SHAPES is a new type of apparel essential. The collection is not designed for gender, but instead for body shape, created from the belief that size is a reference point, not an identity.

“When starting design from a non-traditional place, there are endless opportunities to reimagine everything from construction to sizing to materials,” says Jonathan Tappan, VP, Global Apparel at Converse. “SHAPES is the perfect example of how to meet the consumer in their element. By bringing functionality, inclusivity and comfort to everyday clothes, we believe we can really change the game.”

Made from 50 percent recycled cotton and 50 percent virgin cotton, SHAPES features a set of five core pieces, offered in only four sizes globally (traditionally, there are 14 common sizes across men and women’s lines). 

Converse will also launch Utility Fleece and Court Ready, collections geared toward the Skate and Basketball communities. Along with SHAPES, Utility Fleece and Court Ready look to enable individual expression through silhouettes that fuel movement.

SHAPES will launch in summer 2020, followed by Utility Fleece in fall and Court Ready in early 2021.

’70s Nike Graphics and Cutting-Edge Tech Mix for Nike Gyakusou

Nike Gyakusou Spring 2020 24

The latest unisex Nike Gyakusou capsule follows Jun Takahashi's desire to deliver distinct performance running apparel designed for the modern runner.

It features two t-shirt options complete with reinterpreted 70s-era Nike graphics (one calling out famed Tokyo running spot, Yoyogi Park), two shorts options and a track suit. The latter employs a new class of breathable, engineered Nike Therma-FIT technology to provide zoned warmth and air flow to help keep runners at their optimal temperature.

Nike ISPA Inflate Jacket

Nike ISPA Inflate Jacket  16

The "I" in ISPA commands designers to improvise. Explicitly, the principles of the program remind "never be blocked by the first answer to a problem, IMPROVISE to see if the solution can be improved." That element of the ethos is visible through ISPA product to varying degrees, and in ISPA's early stages is best connected to the spirit of Nike's iterative advances in the Nike ISPA Inflate Jacket.

With an internal blue bladder serving as its signature element, the jacket proposes a manual loft solution for the spring season. It’s a period of the year where, from dawn to dusk, a variance of five degrees might feel pretty different. How can one garment provide adequate adaptive comfort?

With the ISPA Inflate Jacket, the proposed solution follows a historical antecedent: the 2006 Nike Airvantage, a stylish apparel proposition that provided an intricate arrangement of air channels built into its silhouette.

Here there is no 1:1 adaption of an innovation, instead the design riffs on an idea and finds a new form for it. What's realized is the introduction of a bold new silhouette.

The Nike ISPA Inflate Jacket launches globally March 13.

Nike’s Move to Zero Collection Exemplifies Pattern Efficiency

Move to Zero Collection 7

As part of Nike’s Move to Zero journey — the company’s comprehensive efforts toward a zero carbon and zero waste future – the new Move to Zero apparel collection represents Nike’s commitment to circular design principals. Applying a sustainability mindset to Nike classic apparel pieces, the capsule blends recycled polyester with sustainable cotton, uses an innovative dyeing technology and all products meet a 90 percent or better pattern efficiency.  

A new, unlined Nike Sportswear Windrunner jacket features 100 percent recycled polyester plain weave fabrication. The drawcords and zippers made from Nike Grind — a palette of premium materials (rubber, foam, fiber, leather and textile blends) recovered in the footwear manufacturing and recycling process — accentuate the collection’s statement as a roadmap toward a zero carbon and zero waste future.

The Nike Sportswear full-zip hoodie, crew, T-shirt, joggers and shorts are men’s wardrobe staples redesigned with sustainability top of mind. The pieces provide all-day comfort and a casual style, while each includes a mix of at least 60 percent organic and recycled fabrics using new manufacturing methods meant to reduce waste.

The women’s Move to Zero dress, shorts and crew pieces deliver ultimate comfort and feature a mix of at least 60 percent organic and recycled fabrics. The organic cotton in the Move to Zero collection uses less water and fewer chemicals, improves farming practices and provides quality that is the same or better compared to conventionally grown cotton.

The collection is available on nike.com this summer.

Check Out Team USA’s 2020 Medal Stand Collection

2020 Medal Stand 1
2020 Medal Stand 0

The Team USA collection elevates sustainability when this summer’s lights will shine brightest: the medal ceremony. Inspired by the recycled materials that make up the medals, Nike designers reimagined the iconic Windrunner jacket with 100 percent recycled polyester. Its distinct chevron-shaped silhouette, engineered to size for both male and female athletes, is inspired by Japanese kimono design and the panels are knit to shape for minimal waste. The garment’s defining mark — the national team logo — is stamped with recycled Nike Grind rubber. Team USA pants are also constructed from 100 percent recycled nylon, with a 100 percent recycled polyester mesh lining. Additional elements, such as the drawcord tips, zipper pulls and Swoosh branding, are made with Nike Grind.

This summer’s medalists will wear some of Nike’s lowest-impact footwear atop the podium. The Vapormax, a Nike Air icon, is made using 75 percent recycled manufacturing waste. Its recycled-polyester Flyknit upper is precision-engineered for minimal waste. Additional features include FlyEase technology, enabling easy entry and adjustability for athletes of all abilities on the medal stand. Each color and material was inspired by a view of piles of waste from a distance, mixing different textures, colors and shapes together to form the new Nike Air Vapormax 2020.

Two Basketball Staples Get an Update With the City Exploration Collection

Nike City Exploration Collection 2020 Official Images and Release Date 1

Nike Basketball's rising popularity in the late ’80s led the brand to create a memorable dualistic identity: one invented around strength and power, the other around speed and flight. The latter was the origin for the Flight Jacket, which helped reflect a new sense of on- and off-court style throughout the next decade. The City Exploration Collection takes this staple of Nike Basketball culture and applies it through a city-perspective, specifically Chicago and Atlanta.

The aforementioned jacket uses colors inspired by the Chicago Flag. Another addition to the collection, also updated and articulated through a city lens, is the basketball short, made with lightweight knit fabric and bold trims. Zippered pockets make storing small items easy. Rounding out the collection are a range of tees, hoodies, hats and bags.

The full City Exploration Collection releases in February.

Russell Westbrook Jordan Brand Why Not? Apparel Collection 0

In conjunction with his Why Not Zer0.3 signature performance footwear launch, Russell Westbrook teamed up with Jordan Brand in designing his Why Not? apparel collection with a straightforward direction: don't be straightforward.

“The Earth and heart logo on the apparel line is inspired by everyone being able to come together around their love for the game of basketball,” says Westbrook. “It's special to know what the game of basketball has done for my life, and the collection is a symbol of what the game can mean for the rest of the world.”

A Pro Club Throwback for ’70s Hardwood Nostalgia

Nike Pro Club White Space Sweater  0

Nike Pro Club White Space Sweater  1

Based off of Phil Knight’s creation of the Nike Pro Club on March 21, 1975, as a way to venture the newly-formed company beyond the track and onto the basketball court, Nike Sportswear presents the Pro Club sweater.

The Nike Pro Club “team” was fashioned from 10 original members as a way to aid the company in its continued development and improvement of basketball product. Participation in the club meant that professional players were given exclusive apparel.

The sweater evokes the company’s early connection to the sport of basketball by paying homage to the Pro Club throughout. Complete with a chain-stitched “Phil” for the company’s co-founder, the sweater is inspired by product worn by the original club members. The numbers “7” and “5” are featured on either sleeve to commemorate the year in which the Pro Club was founded. The design on the back of the sweater pays tribute to one of the original players in the club, complete with a Swoosh knit into the shoes.

The garment is housed in a custom, collectable retail box that highlights the Nike Pro Club story and includes a Nike cloud Swoosh pin.  

The sweater drops November 26 to Nike Members on nike.com.

Russell Westbrook and Jordan Brand are collaborating with Opening Ceremony to release the latter's first athlete-design project.

“I’ve always loved fashion and the creative process when it comes to designing.

The apparel pieces — including an overcoat, a pant-trouser hybrid, a color-blocked track jacket and more — modify classic Air Jordan looks with new proportions and details based on the point guard's irreverent personal style.

"When Russ and I sat down together to design, it started a creative dialogue and synergy of true collaboration," says Opening Ceremony co-founder and creative director Humberto Leon. "The resulting collection shows how, together, we reworked our favorite Air Jordan essentials into new garments. We're looking forward to seeing how the public puts their own spin on these pieces by incorporating them into their daily wardrobes."

Wisconsin-bred, Chicago-based graphic designer Cody Hudson brings power, humor and memorable narrative to simple shapes in his second installation as part of Nike Running’s A.I.R. (artist in residence) program.

This collection is an updated take on ’60s counter-culture through bold colors, graphics and text. With thoughtful color and arrangement, Hudson employs a pattern of loose circles to convey constant motion and togetherness. 

"The hand-painted dot pattern that is used through the line was meant to convey a feeling of movement and motion, but in a less-than-perfect way," Hudson says. "To me, the dots feel like individuals all coming together to form something bigger when you see it as a larger pattern."

LeBron James x John Elliott Apparel Goes Coastal

Nike LeBron James x John Elliott Apparel Collection 4
Nike LeBron James x John Elliott Apparel Collection 2

Debuted in August 2018, the Nike LeBron James x John Elliott Icon Collection is a tripartite study in head-to-toe versatility. Highlighted by the Icon QS, a fresh lifestyle approach to basketball footwear, the full assemblage of apparel also considers basketball basics with a new perspective. The second drop, including hoodie and longsleeve T-shirt, pushes it all a little farther by introducing subtle colorways that are more evocative of nature than of the gym.

The earthy tones are informed by the landscape of Elliott's youth. "I'm always trying to tell authentic stories that relate to my experiences," he says. "For this season, I knew I wanted to show the ICON QS on the runway during New York Fashion Week for what was our 8th show. The story for our current season is rooted in the idea of a 'dream home,' which for my mom and our family was a coastal ranch house in Northern California."

The latest ICON collection hues are birthed from this place, where the sea meets open land. Blanketed by fog, it is a starkly rugged, gorgeous space. The color scheme relays time spent in this climate, allowing for textures created through single colors, and morphing depending on how the item is worn. 

"It's really exciting, because you put a technical shoe through an earthy lens and complete the look with the apparel too," says Elliott. "When I approach anything with Nike my goal is to create something that is timeless. The shoe, as a project, wasn't easy. It required a lot of trial and error, but it has helped us find a way to form something that brings basketball culture more fluidly into our overall style choices."

The Subtle Sides of New York City Revealed in the NikeCourt Fall Collection

Fall 2019 NikeCourt New York City collection 0

The NikeCourt Slam Tennis Jacket and Pant is inspired by the tear-away design of classic basketball warm-up attire. Sloane Stephens [above] is seen wearing a modified Air Jordan VIII, a silhouette released during her birth year, with a midsole and outsole derived from the NikeCourt Air Zoom Zero.

Fall 2019 NikeCourt New York City collection 1

An area of breathability on the chest of the NikeCourt Advantage Men's Tennis Polo, seen above on Frances Tiafoe, creates a brick pattern inspired by the streets of New York City.

Oil-slicked streets at night, a lone graffiti strip on a wall, the pronounced embroidery on a basketball jacket decal — these quiet details give the fall 2019 NikeCourt collection an introspective flavor.

The intent is to communicate the essence of New York City through subtle signals. “There’s so much going on around Flushing Meadows, but even though that playing atmosphere is well-known, we knew we could expand our notions of what the city can mean to the people who live there, and to the players,” says Abby Swancutt, Global Design Director of NikeCourt.

A black jacket and pant inspired by vintage basketball warm-ups highlight the collection, which is filled out by the distressed art patterning of the faux V-neck polos in gradient violets and neon greens.

Athlete on-court looks continue the tonal theme. Serena Williams, wearing a custom NikeCourt bodysuit, will tie up a Flare Knit Low with an iridescent heel drawn from the city's oil-slicked streets. Printed on the heel are Williams' career wins at Flushing Meadows.
