NikeLab x sacai Summer Collection Blooms with Color and Movement

The collaboration between NikeLab and sacai brings a fresh take that fuses sport inspired classics with a bold expression of style for summer. Each piece is a creative blend of technical, lightweight materials that explore and reinterpret silhouettes from the Nike archive. The collection adds a whimsical color palette as well as new style introductions for a fresh summer debut.

Fluid Designs For a Body in Motion

Lively and unexpected, Abe’s designs come alive when the body is in motion. The lifestyle collection’s dress and skirts bloom into multiple colors and fabrics when the wearer pivots and turns while the NikeLab x sacai Windrunner Jacket reveals a sensational pleated cape when the wearer is on the move. Flashes of mesh, satin and lace peek out from under fleece and nylon, while bright streaks of color appear and disappear as the garment is worn. 

“I was inspired by the palette that I saw in the Nike archives and looked at expressing it in a new way," says Chitose Abe, founder and designer of sacai.  "There is boldness to the color that feels very true to the world of sportswear, yet it is a feminine, playful palette that feels authentic to sacai.”

“It was exciting to work with the Windrunner as a key silhouette,” Abe continues. “This is one of Nike’s most classic designs. Through the design process of re-interpreting the garment, it’s unexpected to see it with a burst of feminine pleats at the back.”

The new Windrunner Skirt re-imagines the iconic athletic jacket as a sleek front-snap skirt. A surprising pleated mesh underskirt creates volume and movement, elevating the piece from a sportswear staple to art in motion.

NikeLab x sacai Dunk Lux

Nike’s classic Dunk Lux basketball shoe receives an ultra-modern makeover featuring premium leather, an elasticized tongue and a drop-in Lunarlon sockliner for soft cushioning. The fashion-forward iteration of the Dunk Lux makes the shoe a slip-on and showcases all of the key concepts in the sacai collection: fluidity, comfort and freedom of movement.
