British fashion designer Kim Jones joined with representatives from the NikeLab for a functional clothing line that's dedicated to creating travel-friendly pieces for athletes that are headed to the Rio 2016 Olympics.

The series was dubbed 'Packable Sport Style,' describing the versatility and compact nature of the clothing in itself. The collection is lightweight and breathable and can be packed down into a small pouch for travel, freeing up space in small bags so that athletes can fit more in with ease.

Kim Jones includes a backpack in the collection as well which is designed specifically for this purpose -- ensuring that it meets all carry-on size requirements for flights. Kim Jones is said to have been inspired by some of his favorite Nike designs throughout time for the collection, recreating them in a streamlined series that pays tribute to athletes while offering functional clothing picks.
