NIKE AND SACAI TAKE ON THE DOWN JACKET

In January 2019, Chitose Abe included a series of collaborative Nike jackets in sacai’s Paris runway show. The down jacket, with wool melton and faux fur, melded a sport staple and the designer’s technical acumen and subtle wit radiated through the design.

This fall, the outerwear pieces release as highlights of Nike and sacai’s latest collaborative offering.

Volume, shape and texture are core to the unisex outerwear pieces, and the complementary MA-1-influenced hoodie. Though the jackets depart from the ubiquitous puffer coat, Abe’s deconstruction and reconstruction of the staple garment grants a playful harmony between binary materials. With the two jackets in the collection, she delivers two different articulations on the idea.

The wool melton version comes in three color schemes, and its material contrast allows an understated formality.

GET YOUR SKIN GUARD UP WITH ULTRA VIOLETTE

When it comes to saving your skin from premature ageing, nothing is more important than three simple letters: SPF. The sun’s UV rays are by far the biggest cause of environmental damage to the skin, and all the expensive cosmeceuticals we apply are doing very little if we aren’t using SPF. JOYCE Beauty has you covered with Ultra Violette, the Australian brand that specialises in beautifully hydrating and makeup-friendly skin essentials with broad-spectrum UVA and UVB protection.
