Anything that gives us the impetus to work out more is okay by us; hence why we’re big fans of Nike’s new capsule collection with Berlin-based designer Johanna Schneider, seriously clever kit that’s one part cutting-edge tech, one-part high fashion kudos.
Created alongside Nike athletes (who incidentally are modelling the range) it’s full of adaptable, versatile and utilitarian pieces that are designed to be worn outside of the gym too, removing the need for a separate outfit for post-work exercise... And with their satisfyingly clean lines and pared-back colours they certainly score high on that point.
There’s a practical side to the pieces, too. All of them feature Nike's signature patented Dri-Fit technology, allowing the wearer to keep cooler for longer and wick away sweat. We’ve got our sights set on the NikeLab X JFS long sleeve top which has thumbholes to anchor it in place during squats and star jumps and the pale blue run jacket complete with hood and up-down zip to provide maximum comfort when pounding the pavements.
