I’ve always thought original Destroyer jacket, (black with the fluorescent breast pocket) that Nike released early this season was a contender for jacket of the year. It perfectly blends that refined, minimalist styling with quality materials and build quality. It was good to see Nike put their twist on the baseball/ varsity jacket that have been abundant over the past few months.
The OG Destroyer.
Nike have built on this strong Destroyer platform with the new campaign for Holiday 2010 collection. The Nike Sportswear City Destroyer Jacket, dedicated to some of the most vibrant capitals around the globe. Produced in limited editions of 25 pieces, personalized jackets were produced for London, Tokyo, Paris, Rio de Janeiro, New York, Los Angeles and Shanghai. The London jacket will for example launch exclusively at Selfridges on Monday, December 20th, with the others dropping in their cities on the same day. Each edition of the City Destroyer is customised with local City graphics and colours inspired by the sport teams and cultural movements in the cities of New York, London, Tokyo, Shanghai, Rio De Janeiro and LA.
