NIKE TECH FLEECE-Fall/Holiday 2013 Part 2

In Our Inbox...

FYI--a loud one.

Since the images of the new Nike Tech Fleece Fall/Holiday 2013 it out inbox---along with the sleek silhouettes-we learned that these on trend classics-are made with the lightweight Tech Fleece Fabric (obvi)...that's embedded with... "Plush foam placed between layers of cotton jersey creates a tri-layer fabric that provides the ultimate in comfort and warmth when needed. The smooth jersey facing gives the garments a modern, streamlined look both inside and out, while the inner foam enhances the fleece’s functionality. It is lighter, warmer, more breathable than its predecessors, and looks as good as it performs."

Trim fits-all are ergonomically shaped for movement...including...(and we quote)...

The collection’s backbone, the Nike Tech Fleece Windrunner, revamps our most iconic jacket. Available for both men and women, it combines a full-zip front with side zip pockets and elastic micro binding at the hem. Plus, the women’s version features thumbholes at the cuffs for enhanced hand coverage.

The Nike Tech Fleece N98 and Nike Tech Fleece AW77 are updated with a seam-bound—instead of stitched—kangaroo pocket for a clean appearance, enhanced access, and more spacious storage. The left chest features a zip pocket suggestive of the Nike Destroyer Jacket, but even bolder with a bonded zipper and two internal media pockets for digital devices, phones, and more—all of the elements of modern life on the streets. Similarly, the Nike Tech Fleece Crew retains its timeless cut while a kangaroo pocket and variable ribbed hem add to its contemporary feel.

Pushing the classic hoody into the future and specially crafted for women, the Nike Tech Fleece Hoodie and Nike Tech Fleece Cape introduce a slightly thinner fleece for enhanced drape. Boasting an oversized funnel neck that can be worn as a hoody or cowl, the Nike Tech Fleece Hoodie presents a toggle at the neck, side zip pockets, a bound hem, and thumbholes at the cuffs.

The Nike Tech Fleece Cape pushes the shape even further by combining the same detailing with an off-center zip and unconventional line that includes an exaggerated dropped back hem. The women’s Nike Tech Fleece Pants offer a classic bottom featuring an elastic waist and cuffs, with zippers at the hem for easy on and off over shoes. The men’s Nike Tech Fleece Pants provide the same easy fit along with a draw cord waistband, open side pockets, and inset construction for enhanced knee articulation.
The Nike Tech Pack, Tech Fleece Collection will be available Aug. 29 @ Nike Sportswear retailers and
Plenty of style---like Norma Kamali's iconic sweatshirt dresses/separates she's been doing for decades...but with more performance features for those on the go.
