There's something mesmerizing about watching the omnipresent, angel-faced Binx Walton lunge, jab, and pirouette in Nike's collaboration with Sacai. The clothes themselves are panelled and tucked to amplify every movement; Walton's eyes made up to match the garments' flashes of iridescent green and swaths of bright fuschia. I don't know if Nike is seriously suggesting we kickbox in pleated skirts, but the campaign video does an admirable job of marrying Sacai's avant-garde sensibilities with the functionality of Nike fabrics. Even if it's not your thing, you have to give props to Nike x Sacai for trying to disrupt the abysmally boring womens activewear market. Watch the videos and peek at the lookbook, below, and if you like what u see cop it March 19 at onnike.com/NikeLab and at concept boutiques like Dover Street Market and Colette.
