NikeLab And Stone Island Collaborate On Third Nike Windrunner
For the previous two seasons, NikeLab and Stone Island have collaborated to reimagine the Nike Windrunner. The first, for Holiday 2015, mixed Stone Island’s Nylon Steel fabric on the body with water and wind-resistant Mussola Gommata fabric on the chevron and hood. The second, for Fall 2016, combined two water and wind-resistant cheapest stone island nylons whereas mimicking conventional Nike Windrunner colorblocking. Both drew from Nike and Stone Island’s histories of innovating in sport and materials design.
For the third installment of the collaboration, the design groups continued to prioritize comfort, weather safety and mobility. Made from a customized, dip-dyed rip-cease nylon fabric in three saturated mineral coloration options (khaki, olive and obsidian), the jacket has water-resistant coating on the outer fabric, interior wool fleece lining and a detachable, fleece-lined hood. Oversized, shearling-lined zip pockets protect valuables, in addition to a storm flap that snaps over the entrance zip for added wind safety. Additional new options embody a hidden coin sleeve pocket, a removable Stone Island badge and a custom-constructed zipper with TPU print for grip.
