Chinese-born, London-based designer Feng Chen Wang has partnered with Nike on a six-piece capsule mirroring her appreciation for technical deconstruction and clothing that is functional whle also conceptual.

Additional items include Nike Pro convertible cargo pants that can be converted to shorts, plus a Nike Pro layered t-shirt, long-sleeve knit shrug, sports bra and tights.
“My creative inspiration often draws from my personal experiences, cultural upbringing, and the influences of people around me. Like Nike, I aim to create more inclusive and sustainable products. This jacket is a perfect example of how products can be designed with inclusiveness and versatility in mind, making them suitable for everyone. Regardless of gender, age, body type, or what sports one likes to play, everyone can take pieces of a garment apart and combine them until a perfect match is found,” said Feng who has previously created conceptual pieces for Nike launch events for Kobe Bryant, Air Vapormax and Air Jordan 1.
