NikeLab ACG's latest collection is designed to trump the summer heat

Too hot to handle

Debunking the myth that only the winter season calls for weather-appropriate garments

Some of us have the proclivity to strip back the layers when the mercury rises, simply because it's both a simple and logical solution. And while we hardly see fault in such paring-back, it is also our duty to spotlight alternative propositions. This one, by way of NikeLab ACG.

As the lifestyle giant's division that drills down on absolute functionality while maintaining a stylish quotient, the summer 2018 collection is clear in its purpose: to regulate heat, to protect from external elements, and to look great while doing it. Led by Errolson Hugh, co-founder of the equally function-focused label, ACRONYM, breathability and hardiness are championed throughout the range.

It manifests in the Gore-Tex material on men's and women's jackets (with detachable sleeves to boot), fleece hoodies spliced with mesh to regulate heat, and unisex cargo trousers designed with a wearer's movement as priority.
