Kicking in Cortez in China

Really love these two videos which are a collaboration between Nike China and Tank Magazine to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the classic Nike Cortez running trainer.

The first follows Liu Xiao ("a makeup artist who usually doesn't wear makeup herself"-intriguing.) while the second features designer Richie Chan and actress and writer Tian Yuan. Styling comes from Isabelle Sawyer (who has also styled a really awesome Year Book Portrait editorial in the latest issue of Hot and Cool Magazine) and a flawless soundtrack from London-based Slime (whose EP Increases is definitely worth a listen to.) 

These videos definitely put drizzly days into an appealing light. Drizzly days that involve walking around the Jinhua architecture park in China from under the protection of a nice cosy mac, and atop huge geometric paving slabs, naturally.
