This fall, we’re mighty glad to be greeted with an update of the Nike Tech Fleece Collection.
The world was first introduced this curious lightweight and breathable fabrication in 2013 – and because it has been engineered to keep the contemporary athlete warm, it’s most unlike how typical fleece feels to the touch.
The 2014 Tech Pack Collection dishes out two key styles – the Tech Windrunner for men, and the Tech Fleece Butterfly for women.
Rafael Nadal in the Tech Windrunner
The Nike Tech Windrunner IRD sports a water-resistant iridescent woven overlay which increases protection from precipitation and highlights the classic chevron aesthetic of the Windrunner. An extended hood bill and reflective zipper pulls emphasize the specialized details. What once was a jacket sponsored for runners back in 1978 has now become a street-style statement and modern staple.
Serena Williams in the Tech Fleece Butterfly
The Nike Tech Butterfly Jacket is a fresh silhouette that elegantly plays with proportion. An oversized hood and dolman sleeves transition to a fitted, feminine cuff, allowing for a greater range of motion and flattering fit. The distinctive asymmetric front zip and contrast-color zipper pulls are fine details that complete this comfy cladding.
As though these features hadn’t already sent us scrambling over to nike.com/tech-pack for a closer look, Nike Sportswear has matched these time-honored styles with the world’s most befitting athletes in their captivating Fall ’14 campaign, in all its grainy BnW goodness.
