Inspired by the architecture of the human body, designer Johanna F. Schneider returns this season with a series of adaptable performance pieces.
“We wanted to create a collection that is sophisticated but allows women to be ready for anything,” said Schneider. “We want women to have the freedom to express themselves as well as the freedom to be physical.”
The Fall/Holiday 2015 NikeLab Women’s Training collection combines high-tech materials with refined style to fashion highly functional performance wear adaptable to warm-up, high-intensity training and cool-down.
The collection includes layering pieces like the NikeLab Women’s Training Asymmetrical Tank Top and the NikeLab Women’s Training Dri-FIT Wool Top, as well as the NikeLab Women’s Training Pro Hyperwarm Tights. Additional signature pieces geared for training in any condition include the NikeLab Women’s Training Jacket, the NikeLab Women’s Training Compression Vest and NikeLab Zoom Fit Agility shoes.
The NikeLab Women’s Training Fall/Holiday 2015 collection is available at select NikeLab stores and nike.com/NikeLab. Additional Holiday pieces arrive October 8, 2015.
Training Outdoors With Confidence
The Fall/Holiday NikeLab Women’s Training collection is created to meet the needs of women everywhere as they step outside and start moving.
Athletes are invited to layer pieces to optimize comfort and performance during training, transforming their outfits as needed to adjust for temperature, breathability, activity or simply personal preference.
Each piece, from a breathable asymmetrical tank to a short-sleeved, poncho-inspired sweatshirt, integrates and balances style and function. Pieces also work together; they can be customized to smoothly follow athletes throughout the arc of their workouts, from warm-up to high-intensity training to cool-down.
Warmth And Comfort
A warm but lightweight jacket is vital for successful fall workouts. Whether you are on a long jog or squeezing in a high-intensity workout at your neighborhood park, NikeLab offers three standout options in its fall Women’s Training collection.
The NikeLab Women’s Training Jacket is an elevated version of a classic outerwear design. Its wind- and water-resistant fabric protects athletes from the season’s variable weather. Meanwhile, the garment’s draw cord system ensures the jacket is customizable, offering wearers the opportunity to find just the right fit for their body and their workout.
The NikeLab Women’s Training Lightweight Jacket offers a combination of versatility, utility and style. The sculptural outer layer includes elongated cuffs with hidden zippers, an adjustable back hem and zippered pockets.
Finally, the NikeLab Women’s Training Knit Jacket features the cuffs, hidden zippers and adjustable back hem of the lightweight jacket, but is constructed with warm fleece fabric.
Versatility and Layering
The NikeLab Women’s Training Pro Hyperwarm Top is an ideal base layer heading into winter, with Dri-FIT and mesh panels that support the body’s muscular structure and keep the wearer’s temperature comfortable. A side zipper adds function, ease and versatility while an asymmetrical hem projects subtle style.
The NikeLab Women’s Training Dri-FIT Wool Top is another highly versatile warm-up top. Made of soft wool, the shirt can be pulled down off the shoulders to easily transform into a mid- or post-workout skirt.
Constructed with Dri-FIT fabric backed with French terry, the NikeLab Women’s Training Pro Hyperwarm Tights are designed to move with and support muscles. Geared for chillier days, when athletes need to keep warm and dry throughout their workout, these tights also serve as a layering base. Rounding out the apparel, the NikeLab Women’s Training Compression Vest is designed to improve posture during workouts, supporting your upper back and opening your chest as you exercise. With a strap for an adjustable fit, the vest is made of stretchy, sweat-wicking Dri-FIT fabric and also features laser perforations for breathability.
NikeLab Zoom Fit Agility
The NikeLab Zoom Fit Agility is designed to take on the most challenging training sessions. Based on the highly responsive Zoom Fit, the NikeLab version preserves the technical aspects of the shoe while adding an unexpected textural interplay of suede, canvas and satin.
The shoe features independent Zoom air units that provide flexible cushioning and durability, in addition to Flywire cables designed for forefoot lockdown. At the same time, a lightweight suede and canvas upper, dual-sided removable suede lace guards and a printed satin top cloth contribute unexpected bursts of femininity, comfort, interest and style.
