Nike’s Holiday 2020 ACG line reflects on sustainability. Specifically, 85 per cent of the clothing in the line incorporates more than 90 per cent recycled material, while the brand continues to work towards zero emission and zero waste to protect the environment.
“That balance between performance and sustainability is key to Nike ACG,” Nike Design Director, ACG Apparel, Nur Abbas said, “Sustainability was our first filter for materials used in this collection, but we didn’t compromise the identity of ACG style and attitude; wearers can continue to be protected from the elements when exploring awe-inspiring nature, or even wear the apparel beyond a weekend in the outdoors.”
Nike ACG Holiday 2020 features two shoes and a selection of clothing. Drawing influence from Smith Rock, a volcanic formation found in Oregon, a few hours from Nike ‘s headquarters, the line is built to serve as a flexible layering system during the colder months. Subsequently, each piece is named after the Smith Rock trail, although the rock shadings of the area have inspired the graphic direction.
Leading the shoe assortment is the all-new Mountain Fly GORE-TEX. Built to withstand rocky terrain, the shoe is available in two shades with terrain-dyed hues and highlights. The pre-existing Air Nasu GORE-TEX comes with a new winter colour palette.
The Nike ACG’s Holiday 2020 fashion range features a durable and windproof Misery Ridge GORE-TEX Sweater for men and women, an insulated and packable buffer jacket, a new fleece made of 100% recycled fabrics, a jacket, and a Polartec crew neck and trousers.
