Gyakusou FW2011/12 ‘Running Monks’ Collection Video

Undercover x Nike film from POP Magazine on Vimeo.

Nike and Jun Takahashi present their third running collection under the Gyakusou sub-brand. I have owned several pieces from past seasons and I must say the utility, styling and construction has always been top-notch. I really appreciateĀ  Jun’s work on this entire collaboration as it’s entirely evident that his heart is in it. He is able to merge his design prowess and interest in long-distance running with Nike’s manufacturing prowess. This video takes on a theme reminiscent of Buddhist monks and artfully showcases the new items including thermal t-shirts with zip-off sleeves, and what looks like a return of the Lunar Spider TT+ in fresh colorways.

Word is that prices are lowered this season so runners (and Undercover fans) everywhere can rejoice. I’ll be sure to provide more Gyakusou coverage as it comes.
