Drake is on everyone’s minds with the recent release of his long-anticipated album Certified Lover Boy. And next on his order of business is a collaboration with Nike in a NOCTA golf collection which will consist of golf apparel and accessories. The collection is said to be inspired by his childhood, as he often played golf when he was younger with his uncle. The collection is a ‘testament’ to that, according to a press release. This collaboration combines traditional golf silhouettes with on-the-road comfort – showing how it is not only for golf players.
This release marks the first golf collection from the sub-label NOCTA, which was named after the ‘nocturnal habits’ that Drake occupies during his creative process. Drake and Nike launched NOCTA at the end of 2020 after filming his “Laugh Now Cry Later” music video at Nike’s World Headquarters in Oregon.
“NOCTA is about creating something for people on the move,” Drake said when the brand launched in 2020. “People who want functional, comfortable fits that are adaptable from one environment to the next.”
It is clear to see that this collection has been designed with a minimalistic approach with a black, grey and cream colour palette. You can find a quarter zip windbreaker and full zip tracksuit. There is also a green nylon long sleeve top as the pop of colour, branded with NOCTA GOLF on the back. And in terms of accessories, you can get your hands on a Nike cap and some sunglasses. The apparel has also been made with 100% recycled fibers.
Nike has unveiled each item from the 10-piece collection that you can see below. From these closer images we know that the clothing includes functional details too. Expect to find utility pockets, water-repellent finishes, sweat-wicking materials, and lightweight laser-cut mesh, perfect for any sport.
