nike capsule 101 Capsule Show 2008   Nike  Tech Pack + Vintage

For this season’s Capsule trade show, which took place in Lower East Side of NYC last week. Athletic giant Nike set-up shop to showcase their new offerings from its Tech Pack and Vintage collections. For the Tech Pack this year, it is a focus on nocturnal activities, such as night biking or running. Nike took elements from these activities and created details on each of the product. For example a Windrunner jacket with reflective elements to ensure the safety of the runner/biker. However, take a closer look at each of the reflective element and you will notice it is a depiction of the lunar cycle. Another is a running jacket, composed from lightweight yet durable Tyvek, a DuPont developed synthetic fabric thats been applied on everything from building insulation to bio-hazard suit. The jacket can be fold into a manageable unit for the user to carry with them at all time.

In the Nike Vintage Collection, it is a re-visit to the late 70s with the addition of the “pinwheel” graphic. Originally conceived for the U.S. Olympic Team participating the 1980 Summer Olympics in Moscow. The design never appeared in the Game, because U.S., along with 64 other nations, boycotted the game as protest after the Soviet Union invaded Afghanistan in 1979. Items will be available at retailers starting in the coming months.
