The Active Team has been a longtime fan of Tom Sachs, so when it was announced he would debut a collaboration with Nike on the eve of his newest Armory show, we had to investigate. Curious to see how his signature ‘bricolage’ style – remaking objects with a do-it-yourself approach using tape, markers, and bits of cardboard and string – translated into a capsule collection for the sportswear brand, we are impressed by the explorer’s results.
Tom’s SPACE PROGRAM: Mars inspired the collection including the Mars Yard Shoe, the Trench, Marsfly Jacket, and the Lightweight Tote, with easy-to-spot themes when you check out the video outlining the project.
