New York-based artist Tom Sachs  has teamed up with Nike  on a capsule collection that combines Sach’s DIY ethos and his preoccupation with space exploration with the sportswear giant’s yen for performance innovation. Together, they’ve come up with a series of limited-edition sneakers, bags and jackets that are made using fabric from Mars Excursion Rover airbags, mainsails for boats, and even NASA spacesuits . The joint venture, dubbed NikeCraft , will launch on the eve of Sach’s Space Program: Mars  installation at Manhattan’s Armory Park.
