There are very few high fashion meets sportswear collaborations that retain a chic structured design, allowing you to transform from workout mode to bar mode with the it-crowd none the wiser. Nike’s latest capsule collection aptly dubbed ‘NikeLab x JFS’, with Berlin-based Acronym designer Johanna F. Schneider, not only does that but is a fusion of femininity and performance - is there anything better? This is hands down, the must have high fashion performance collection of 2015.
Inspired by the female body and its dynamic architecture, Schneider’s designs are rooted in the idea that feminine silhouettes are a balance of hiding and revealing parts of the body. Perfect not only for taking this look on the town, but also for maximising your ability whilst you are mid warrior pose, marathon or crump session, and putting the focus back into looking like an absolute stylish boss while you do.
This range is not only absolutely on trend, but designed to suit women's shapes, skin tones, aesthetic and functionality. It is a new movement in high fashion activewear that not only inspires you to get moving to your maximum ability, but have you looking as stylish as possible in the meantime.
So what can you expect from this capsule collection, as seen on uber stylish Morgan Lake? Think beautiful contrasts of structure and flexibility, organic and bold, high fashion and performance. You can expect garments of the absolute highest quality, using a conglomerate of different pattern works and materials. The most stunning neutral, earthly derivative colour palette with tiny pops of pink. The printed sports bra and digital print leggings, are a must have from this collection as they are designed to highlight key muscle zone interaction during exercise. Not only will these pieces provide maximum support, but allow for each area of your body to move freely so you can get maximum results and reach.
Perhaps the most impressive part of this collection, is the structure of the different set of garments, with their mod A-lines, statement block shapes, and dramatic pocket and zip placement. Exhibited best in the Sleeveless Cape which bases itself as a killer outer layer that allows for maximum breathability whilst you move.
From a Berlin based designer like Johanna, you would expect nothing less than structural perfection. You can tell she has been largely influenced by her own outdoor and performance based lifestyle. This capsule collection is sophistication meets modular chic at its best, in a way that will have you legging it into store to snap up these statement pieces before they sell out.
