In a time where influence from the past is used to inspire our present and future, one way designers are taking apparel to the next level is with a focus on functional utility features. Bringing all of this and then some, Nike’s Archive Remix Collection is the perfect example functional apparel. When it comes to utility design, the difference is in the details. Whether it’s 3M hits for that reflective flair, hidden zippers and pockets for secure storage, pull cord adjustability or double zip styling, pieces like this take something deceiving simple and give you all the features in clothing you never knew you needed.
The quarter zip is constructed with a blend of cut-and-sew windbreaker and fleece materials for the perfect combination of lightweight breathability, with comfortable warmth. With a quarter-zip design for customisable airflow, the elasticated cropped hem brings some old-school flavour and personalised fit.
The overhead hoodie, bears all the hallmarks of a classic hoodie, but with some added functionality. Doing away with the kangaroo front pocket, the Archive Remix Overhead Hoodie subs in a zipper front pouch for added security. Complete with clean Nike Swoosh branding at the front pocket and rear, this is a classic piece for everyday wear.
Rounding out the collection with a pair of woven pants, these pants offer a fresh take on a classic windbreaker-style joggers. With cut-and-sew panelling, printed details give this versatile layer its future-heritage look and feel.
