Nike ACG has shared the first images of their new summer 2021 collection. The items have a special inspiration, namely the tropical islands of Hawaii. When you think of the American state, you probably think of tropical temperatures with sun, sea and sand. But Hawaii also has a volcanic landscape with wild nature. These are the two main sources of inspiration for the collection. Check out the Nike ACG Summer '21 lookbook below.
Nike ACG stands for 'All Conditions Gear'. The brand is part of Nike and specialises in innovative sportswear and sports items for all climates. The items often have a sporty look and are made for outdoor use. For this reason, functionality and comfort are very important for the brand.
ACG's motto is 'Designed, tested and made on Planet Earth'. They often base their collection on a place on earth. For their summer collection of 2021, Hawaii has been chosen. The volcanic landscape of Hawaii Volcanoes National Park has been a great source of inspiration. The black mountains are clearly visible in the picture above. The wild jungle also plays a big role in the collection.

As much as 85% of the collection contains more than 90% recycled materials. This helps Nike ACG to reduce material waste, which would otherwise be thrown away.
