Matthew Williams of ALYX Studio and Nike team up to launch a concise collection of highly technical and utilitarian athletic wear. Using Nike’s vast repository of athlete-informed data, Williams uses computational and generative design to forge fluid training apparel for the transitional lifestyle. Modular layers, magnetic buckles and smart storage flow with Williams’ approach to versatile movement. In using generative design, Williams fuses training apparel with streetwear. The collection includes a waterproof jacket with technical front taping, 3-in-1 shorts, woven pants, a trio of t-shirts and a moisture wicking balaclava.

NikeLab x MMW Jacket

Technical jacket in lightweight, waterproof, and breathable 3-layer woven nylon fabric. An integrated Nike Sphere facemask and fingerless knit running gloves provide all-in-one protection and concealment. Nylon tape utility loops are stitched diagonally across the chest, increasing storage and allowing for quick access to keys and accessories. The jacket stows into the right pocket and can be easily attached to a belt or bag via an included carabiner. Finished with tonal Nike x MMW graphics at the chest and back, and a woven label at the interior placket.

NikeLab x MMW Hybrid Tights

This unique 3-in-1 pant system provides comfort and utility in a wide range of environments. The outer layer shorts come in a comfortable stretch woven polyester and are outfitted with a vast array of pockets secured with zip, Velcro® or drawcord. An elasticated waistband is further refined with an integrated nylon belt and magnetic FidLock buckle. Beneath the shorts are fully articulated tights with four way stretch and Dri-FIT technology to wick sweat and aid in movement. At the rear is a large French terry towel embellished with a large Swoosh that clips onto d-ring belt loops. Finished with tonal Nike x MMW prints and reflective detailing throughout.

NikeLab x MMW Pants

Pants made in a comfortable stretch woven polyester with articulated tailoring for comfort and a full range of movement and a reinforced crotch gusset for durability. The pants are outfitted with two inset side pockets, one hidden side pocket with zip closure and two inset rear pockets. A nylon tape tool loop is stitched at the rear along with clip hoops at the waist for additional storage. Integrated nylon FidLock belt with magnetic snap fastening and branded pull tab allows for quick adjustment and Velcro cuffs provide a customized fit.

Packable balaclava folds into itself into a small storage pocket and includes a carabiner clip, for easy portability and attachment to pants and jacket.
