The Tokyo marathon is one of the six major marathons worldwide. For the 2019 event, we designed a line of performance wear for Nike. Design elements were molded around each garment's architecture to prioritize the functionality of the piece. The system overall is centered around Japanese simplicity, primary colors, and bold geometric shapes. The Japanese character for "run" forms the basis for signature tags, and that character was deconstructed to form a Boro-inspired pattern used sparingly throughout the line as a layer of texture.
