The new Nike x Feng Chen Wang is an experimental take on sportswear that highlights the Chinese designer’s overconstructed aesthetic with a twist on functionality.
The collection is made up of six pieces but the star of the show is the Transform Jacket. At first glance, it looks like a regular black hooded jacket with a brown side panel but it’s actually much more than that. The Transform Jacket is the epitome of Feng’s mantra of “to own less is to own more” with this singular jacket being customizable in over 30 ways thanks to its removable components.
The rest of the collection features a sports bra, crop top and tights that were all created with structurally engineered knits. It’s a blend between sportswear and wellness, something Feng embraces in her own personal life. “As a designer, my creative inspiration often draws from my personal experiences, cultural upbringing, and the influences of people around me,” she explains.
On top of the customisable options, Feng’s designs are rooted in inclusivity, with products made to be worn by anyone “regardless of gender, age, body type, or what sports one likes to play,” embodying her own and Nike’s commitments to the development of sportswear.
The full Nike x Feng Chen Wang collection will drop on September 28 online, on the SNKRS app and in select Nike stores.
