Last year saw the release of the inaugural Nike Sportswear NSW ‘Made in Italy’ collection, a sophisticated capsule range of tennis-inspired fashion apparel. For the SS12 collection, the NSW design team drew inspiration from Rugby in anticipation of the 2012 Six Nations Tournament, re-imagining iconic Nike pieces such as the Destroyer and Windrunner jackets with an uncompromising focus on quality and performance. The collection is made in the same Italian artisan factories and workshops used by Stone Island and C.P. Company, using a refined blend of technical and luxury materials.

Combining Nike’s iconic Destroyer varsity jacket with an elongated trench coat silhouette, the Destroyer Trench Coat’s body is constructed from a premium crisp cotton fabric with a wind and water-resistant rubberised treatment, while the arms are luxury calf leather with a perforated finish. The functional detailing and luxury finish make this a true standout piece from the Made in Italy collection.
