With Nike being a globally-recognized company for its dominant position in the sportswear world, it’s safe to assume that Swoosh lovers can be found in every corner of this world. When it comes to Cav Empt, the Tokyo-based retailer is showing us how they rock it from Japan all the way to London with an official Nike collab dropping in a few days.
Cav Empt, which launched in 2011 by way of graphic artist Shinichiro Nakamura (commonly known as Sk8thing) and England-bred streetwear connoisseur Toby Feltwell, sets us up with a cool offering highlighted by the coveted Air Max 95. Also included in the set is a track suit, a jersey, a vest and headwear, each infusing elements of the British and Japanese street culture that both designers have been key players in curating over the past decade and counting. The main motif seen throughout is a digi camo print, which adorns the AM95 in navy/beige and white/navy color options. The apparel follows suit in terms of color, but opts for solid color blocking instead on the tracksuit tops and matching pants. A simple offering for sure, but it’s the way C.E. stays true to its roots that makes this collab a standout capsule.
Check for the Nike x Cav Empt collection starting this Saturday (January 5) at Cav Empt Tokyo and online. Following the initial drop, a wider release will go down next Thursday (January 10). See the full set below:
