W‘s beauty director plans to hit the road in Nike’s new gear.

Nike mesh top

Every few years, I visit the Nike headquarters in Oregon to see where all the cool stuff happens. When I went this past summer, I got fitted for one of the new performance bras, ran through Portland’s Forest Park in the just released Zoom Terra Kiger 2 trail-running shoe, and attempted to touch my toes in a stretch class with the gold-medal gymnast Shawn Johnson. That was all great, but the fashion snob in me is most excited about Nike’s collaboration with the Brazilian designer Pedro Lourenço, which debuts this month. The leggings, tops, and jackets subtly incorporate the color-blocking and draping Lourenço is known for. I snapped up this pixelated black and pale pink long-sleeve mesh top, which I plan to wear while cycling. Maybe the blurry print will make me look like I’m riding faster.
