VERUSHKA IN VOGUE 1965; NIKE TECH WINDJAMMER JACKET 2014
We have had our eye on the new bright and graphic Nike Tech Windrunner Jacket, and by chance stumbled upon this image of Verushka from Vogue, photographed by Henry Clarke in 1965. Whether purely coincidental or direct inspiration, the resemblance of the windbreaker to the dress is uncanny. The pink, lavender and green color blocking with black taped seams, look as fab on this mod dress as they do on this modern running jacket, and the blue of the Mediterranean sky is echoed in the jacket’s hood.
The Nike Tech Windrunner Jacket is in fact one of the first pieces of apparel Nike created in 1978 when the company was known only for its footwear. This updated version is a statement piece designed to protect against the elements. It features moisture wicking Dri-Fit fabric, an adjustable scuba hood, raglan sleeves, a stretch hem, and cuffs with thumbholes for high performance style.
