The launch of Drake‘s latest much-hyped Nike collaboration, mysteriously dubbed “NOCTA,” draws ever closer. Dubbed “a collection for the collective,” the introductory NOCTA apparel collection serves up accessible silhouettes in two tones, yielding high-contrast winter-ready layering pieces.
NOCTA’s design cues are informed by Drake’s desire to create “the hardest” garments possible, yielding a premium sporty uniform for individuals on the go. “Just the best of that world,” the rapper said in a statement. “To be associated with the highest level possible — that was always my goal.”
For what’s presumably the first of several NOCTA releases, Drake and Nike have imagined a quartet of seasonal essentials in a relatively straightforward palette. There’s a classic puffer jacket, hoodie, fleece pants and crew socks on hand, each realized in Black or University Gold (except for the monochrome socks) and accented by graphics executed in the opposite color.
All of the lightweight, yet insulating items feature NOCTA’s wordmark, branding and Swoosh detailing; most notably, the puffer is elevated by a three-dimensional beveled Swoosh on the rear. Elsewhere, the hoodie and pants feature reflective piping to further heighten nighttime visibility.
Prices for the line’s first drop are as follows:
NOCTA Puffer Jackets: $400 USD NOCTA Hoodies: $120 USD NOCTA Fleece Pants: $110 USD NOCTA Crew Socks: $30 USD
