Japanese fashion brand Onitsuka Tiger continues to present a contemporary collection that combines fashion with sports, and heritage with innovation.
The collection consists of items which keep Onitsuka Tiger’s identity intact yet combine it with modern and technical elements, such as a military jacket characterized by an attractive remake-taste combination where quilting, nylon and other fabrics are combined, as well as a down jacket which stands out with its technical elements of connecting nylon materials with different textures and pop neon colors. The collection also uses various materials, including velour-like glossy nylon incorporating a sporty taste while maintaining elegance.
For footwear, the latest models combining archival elements from Onitsuka Tiger’s past with contemporary designs are lined up: DENTIGRE BOOT, which combines the classical boot design and a coat-type shoe upper of mixed different materials with its impactful sole, and the BIG LOGO TRAINER 2.0 MT, a hybrid of an upper inspired by vintage running-type shoes and the archival mid-cut sneakers and a modern sole, will be launched. The color palette of the collection comprises various seasonal colors – vivid colors such as neon and light green; and dark colors like navy blue and black; as well as key military colors.
The collection also features items made in collaboration with NYC-based artist Brian Kenny – pants on which the number motif evoking pop culture in patchwork and shoes mixing colourful materials. When these special pieces are coordinated with the color-blocked nylon puffer jacket, they add a playful impression to the urban sporty style.
On the collection pieces, blue and red CLAW Stripes, which were utilized for the training wear in 1970s, are applied as a new brand’s motif in varied sizes to add impact. Keeping the Onitsuka Tiger spirit unchanged even after more than 70 years have passed since the brand’s inception, and blending contemporary elements there, Onitsuka Tiger always proposes fresh styles timelessly.
