The Jun Takahashi-designed Gyakusou running project is easily one of Nike’s most successful endeavors in years, in terms of dynamic design and forward thinking vision. Takahashi, best known for his label , first brought his elite design ethic to equipment in October 2010, with a Fall/Winter collection. Now, the second collection (which we previewed in a behind the scenes video), for Spring/Summer 2011, has been released. For this second collection, the theme is “inside out,” and Takahashi has taken more freedom with a deconstructed style. Mesh linings are more clearly visible through large vents, and construction starts with a focus on the interior, leaving a large number of seams visible on the exterior; the result is a more whimsical sense of technicality. Takahashi also modified the color palette a bit for this collection, replacing the predominant black with a mix of earthy tones and vibrant spring colors. Check out the collection, available at select Sportswear accounts, after the jump.
