Jordan Brand holiday collection merges performance and fashion
For those looking for a new way to say Merry Christmas this holiday season, the Jumpman folks have come up with some ideas, launching a 2015 Holiday Collection that expands on the Jordan Brand’s performance basketball and training lines and offers a fresh take on sportswear.
On the training side, the Jordan Shield Pack mixes Dri-Fit with an overlay to repel the weather in the lead hoodie. The Jordan Performance line leads with the new CP3.IV and an upcoming Jordan Super.Fly 4 Jacquard that mixes the chassis of the Super.Fly 4 with the one-piece woven upper we’ve most recently seen in the Air Jordan XX9. A shooting shirt and Flight Hyperply Jacket with 550 down fill for winter give warmth to performance.
The Jordan Sportswear approach merges premium materials with fashion trends for such items as a fleece parka, a jacket, a hooded parka and even a scarf and beanie.
Of course, you’ll still find plenty of retro Jordan releases this holiday season if you want to stray back in a time a little.
