Tom Sachs x Nike
In conjunction with Tom Sach’s new show at the Park Avenue Armory – SPACE PROGRAM: MARS, Nike and Tom Sachs present Tom Sachs: NIKECRAFT. The inspiration for the Tom Sachs: NIKECRAFT Collection is space travel featuring The Mars Yard Shoe, the Trench, The Marsfly Jacket, and the Lightweight Tote. “Nike design and Sachs applied materials that have never been used in sportswear, taken from automotive air bags, mainsails for boats and the space suit itself. Each piece is packed with functionality that would prove useful in the voyage through space. Zipper pulls that double as storage containers, paracord that can be fashioned as a tourniquet and embellishments like the periodic table of elements screened on the inside of a jacket – they all merge visual interest with purpose.” Tom Sachs’ SPACE PROGRAM: MARS opens privately last night and to the public on May 16th at the Park Avenue Armory, where there will be a pop-up shop celebrating and selling the artisanal capsule collection. See it all after the jump….
