Yesterday in Milan, Nike launched the second installment of the new HTM Flyknit collection, the most recent offering from the ongoing collaboration between Fragment Design Founder Hiroshi Fujiwara, Nike VP of Creative Design Tinker Hatfield and Nike Inc. CEO/designer Mark Parker. The three new silhouettes showcase the performance attributes of Nike's new Flyknit technology, while also hinting at its future capabilities.
The second installment of the HTM Flyknit collection features three new colorways, each using multiple yarns to create a unique heathering effect on the upper. The HTM Racer is offered in Total Orange, while the HTM Trainer+ arrives in Grey / Volt and Black / White colorways.
This week's launch coincides with Milan's Salone del Mobile, with launches at NikeStadium Milano, 10 Corso Como and Excelsior. Additional releases are scheduled for April 22 in London at the 1948 store, and April 27 in Tokyo at both Nike Harajuku and Dover Street Market Ginza. The next American release takes place on April 22 at the 21Mercer store in New York.
