Nike have slowly been teasing fans with a taste of what’s to come with the apparel line collaboration.

The first sighting of the collaboration was during the opening of Tom Sachs ‘Tea Ceromony’ exhibition in Tokyo, where the artist was spotted wearing his new take on the Solarsoft Sandals. Shortly after these images surfaced, Nike announced that the artist has collaborated on an apparel line with the gloabbly reconised brand. The first product that has been officially showcased is the NIKECRAFT poncho.

A product that has been tweaked to perfection during the course of four years. Tom Sachs has been working closely with Jarrett Reynolds, Nike’s senior design director on the project.

The poncho highlights transparency within its materials and construction. The trinity case has ceramic beads created in Sach’s studio and the material used is the same Dyneema fabric used on the Mars Yard Overshoe. The poncho features a fidlock buckle and proudly shows off a Made in Vietnam logo.

Tom Sach’s commented to Hypebeast about the project, ‘ NIKECRAFT isn’t just a brand, it’s a philosophy and an approach to how we do stuff based on transparency and evidence of construction.’ A perfect collaboration to also coincide with world Earth day.
