colette Teams up with Asics Tiger for a Japanese-Inspired GEL-Lyte V "YUKATA"
An elegant rework of the classic trainer.
It is without question that French retailer colette knows how to create a killer collaboration — its recent project with G-Dragon’s PEACEMINUSONE set K-pop fans everywhere into a crazed frenzy. This time around, colette teams up with Asics Tiger for a GEL-Lyte V “YUKATA” (‘yakuta’ is a light cotton kimono integral to traditional Japanese tradition). Constructed with tonal white leather for the upper, an intricate pattern composed of Japanese fans is embroidered all across the silhouette. A subdued pastel blue is used for the collar, while a darker royal blue is seen on the medial panel branding and “GEL-LYTE V” stitching on the side panel. Rounding off the look is subtle embroidery of the ASICS and colette logos on the heel counter.
You can shop the colette x Asics Tiger GEL-Lyte V “YUKATA” at select retailers such as Invincible.
