Why you need: the Nike Tech Pack Collection right now



I ventured out onto the streets for the first time today in a while, having spent the last few days fighting off multiple deadline and New Zealand Fashion Week exhaustion and a flu I am hoping that I have nailed on the head. It wasn’t the ideal day to exercise however, because despite being the first day of Spring it was raining cats and dogs and damn chilly to boot!
What I should have had on was this delicious cape pictured above from the Nike Tech Pack Collection, which has re-imagined classic Nike silhouettes using the innovative Nike Tech Fleece since it debut in 2013. It was perfect timing that it was released on the first day of Spring this year, and I should have just waited one more day to grab a piece and then got my hustle on.
So, what is the deal with Nike Tech Fleece? Well it is legendary for its pliable, lightweight layer of plush foam situated between soft cotton jersey (feels amazing) that traps air to provide warmth, breathability, insulation and articulation. World star athletes like Francis Hougaard, Cristiano Ronaldo, Juan Martin Hernandez, Ayumu Hirano, Wu Haiyan, Teddy Thomas and Skylar Diggins (also pictured above, incred!) rely on Tech Pack for their off the field/court style.
Inspired by sport and fashion, the 2015 women’s line is a riot of vivid colours and bold new silhouettes that are built to layer and look killer doing it. The modern, streamlined styles are slightly slimmer than previous collections, with flattering overlay tape, smooth jersey facing and finished necklines. The Nike Tech Fleece Cape – my pick of the bunch – has a dramatic, feminine silhouette that includes a cocoon-like hood, while the Nike Tech Fleece Camo Crew presents a seasonal woodland camo print.
The menswear proposition has similarly evolved and also features woodland camp camouflage and new proportions — along with elevated details, like multi-faceted zippered pockets. The Nike
Tech Fleece Varsity Jacket updates a classic style with the engineered fleece and an ergonomic design, whereas the Nike Tech Fleece Hoodie extends its rear hem for more coverage and protects its wearer's face with a taller enveloping hood. I’d wear the collection for the boys as much as the girls as it all looks so damn good and perfect for the up and down weather ahead as we bowl on towards Christmas.

The 2015 Nike Tech Pack Collection featuring Nike Tech Fleece is available right now at Nike stores, Fridge Freezer Icebox, Good as Gold, Loaded, Stirling and Platinum, so what are you waiting for?
