Swoosh Street Style: Nike Hooded Fleece

Fusing The Great Outdoors With Urban Spirit

Suddenly realised its nearing the end of 2019 and you’re yet to tick off one of your New Years resolutions? Perhaps one of them was to encourage yourself to step out of your comfort zone? If that’s indeed the case, then lucky you because we’ve just found ourselves in possession of the perfect piece to see you into daring territory. Unapologetically bold, this Nike Hooded Fleece arrives brimming with explosive hues and ‘70s design cues.

Exactly what you need to enliven an autumnal rotation that’s seemingly become mundane, this new-season Swoosh style comes bundled in neon pigments of orange, peach, coral and purple which are then executed with cosy Sherpa fleece and nylon overlays.

Though immensely soft and comforting to the outer, this Nike Hooded Fleece strikes the perfect temperature balance internally thanks to its breathable mesh body. This type of stark fabric contrast on each side is intentional and ensures the design can cultivate the ideal warm-to-cool ratio amidst the unpredictable British weather, which let’s face it, we all love to hate.

Elsewhere, the silhouette’s high-octane aesthetic is bolstered by distinctive Nike branding at the chest and royal-blue trims at its pocket and cuffs. Additional details include a contemporary ½ zip closure and capacious hood with Sherpa fleece lining.

In what appears as a true ‘streetwear meets the great outdoors’ kinda set up, this Nike Hooded Fleece sends a bold, winterized message to the standard feel of ‘70s climbing gear. And though it’s certainly not reserved for the faint-hearted, we encourage you to take a leap of faith with this one, you won’t regret it.

The North Face’s New SS18 Apparel Channels Classic Streetwear at its Finest

With a proven track record for making outerwear that’s as suited to the streets as it is to the mountains, it should come as no surprise that The North Face also create fantastic apparel that’s aimed more at the relaxed end of the market.

The ‘Fine’ range of jersey basics displays the same eye for vintage colour and detailing that’s made their jackets a success with tastemakers across the streetwear spectrum: excellent fabric choices like brushed cotton jersey and interlock sweat that feel both sturdy and luxuriously soft; comfort-oriented details like dropped hems, articulated elbows and underarm ventilation eyelets; and that iconic Half Dome box logo displayed to the sleeve in a way that’s distinctive yet inobtrusive.

The colour scheme also swerves the usual whites and navies, with Dark Teal and Vintage White proving just as versatile, yet different enough to stand out. Overall, it’s just very good stuff.

Consisting of long- and short-sleeved tees, a crewneck sweatshirt and a colour-blocked hoodie, The North Face ‘Fine’ apparel is all available from Aphrodite Clothing.
