Release Details | Nike x Cav Empt

Nike ushers in the new year with a collaboration with Cav Empt. Founded in 2011, the Tokyo based label incorporated their iconic outlook, the harmony of creatives with British & Japanese references, delivering a set of basic core sportswear pieces. The collection consists of 2 colors of the Air Max 95, a Track Suit, a Cap & a Vest.

“In the early 2000s, a Nike Tracksuit paired with Nike Air max was the uniform of the London Streets. We started C.E. a decade later, and though we were in Tokyo, images from that time and place have been consistently with us,” says Toby Feltwell C0-Founder of Cav Empt. “We looked at this opportunity to work with Nike as a way to interact with these images more directly. We are engaging in a sort of time travel. The project with Nike has allowed us to work in the present to redesign our past.” As Feltwell notes, C.E.’s approach is not an exercise in authenticity. “We’re not directly appropriating stuff, but we’re seeing various things that interest us and trying to highlight them,” he says.

Now let’s dive right into the respective pieces itself.
