Nike’s collaboration with Japanese artist Yuko Kanatani continues with the Nike Tight of the Moment "Midnight Craftwork".


The NTM-Midnight Craftwork comes in two Nike Pro styles, the Nike Pro Tight and Nike Pro Sports Bra. The print will also be featured on the Nike Studio Wrap Pack and the Nike Roshe Run. The "Midnight Craftwork" collection is available as of today via Nike.

For this design, Yuko reflected on her "midnight world". This world represents the time of the day in which she can be alone with her art, free from distraction.

This collection is absoloutely gorgeous. In all honesty I'm a a bit mesmerised by it. Yuko's ideas and conecptualisation of what "Midnight Craftwork" actually is, is definitely evenident thoughout the whole colelction.

Embroidery is one of the artistic mediums that can dominate Yuko’s attention well after the sun has set. When creating the pattern for the NTM-Midnight Craftwork, the artist envisioned girls such as herself working on their embroidery into the night.


Yuko sewed s onto pieces of fabric and  To form the tight’s pattern, Kanatani combined photographs of embroidery of beads, spangles, candy wrappers and ribbon with hand drawings done in acrylic paint. Digital sublimation technology, which employs a heat press to send ink from a printed picture onto a piece of fabric, transferred the finished design onto the tights. The incorportation of Yuko’s own decorative needlework is a really special touch to this collection. Honestly, I want it all. Check out some more pictures below...
