L.A. based-designer Dr. Romanelli and Nike have come together on a special one-off custom Destroyer Jacket, crafted with a grey wool body and accented with black and orange striped ribbing at the cuffs and hem. The sleeves are made up of a patchwork of different materials and colors, providing a unique twist on the traditional varsity jacket silhouette. Ultimately, the good doctor supplied his design expertise for a worthy cause: the jacket was donated by Nike to the Black AIDS Institute. Founded in 1999, the organization acts as a think tank and advocacy group, working with both institutions and individuals to stop the spread of AIDS in black communities through training, technical assistance and information dissemination.
