Nike presents a behind-the-scenes look at the shooting of the Gyakusou Fall/Holiday 2011 video on location in Kyoto. The clip includes a discussion about the inherent "Japanese flavor" of the Gyakusou apparel collection, from the curving lines to the fabric textures that resemble a Japanese kimono. There's also extensive commentary by Jun Takahashi, creative director of UNDERCOVER. He explains what inspired him to film in the temples and shrines of Kyoto: "Japan is a country where you can find spiritual places in the middle of nature next to urban cities." He continues, "I like to mix high tech and low tech, or two contrasting elements in my apparel design, like tradition and state-of-the-art technology coexist in Japan."
