Onitsuka Tiger Teams up With NYC Artist Brian Kenny on Cut-And-Sew Sneaker Collab
Statement trainers with vibrant patchwork and heritage designs.
For its latest sneaker drop, Japanese label Onitsuka Tiger collaborates with New York-based artist Brian Kenny on a contemporary collection that unifies vintage elements with modern aesthetics. Known for being a multi-media artist, Kenny often works with vintage clothing via a cut-and-sew method that showcases his artistry through handcrafted pieces and vibrant patchwork. Bringing his unique style front and center, the Brian Kenny x Onitsuka Tiger collection highlights heritage items from the sportswear label and redefines them with an updated twist.
The statement piece in the collaborative capsule is the vibrant, reworked iteration of the D-Trainer Boro. Using a mélange of different materials, the resulting profile is a quirky composition of various textures that together create a truly singular design. From leather segments to discarded tags, the dynamic upper is perfectly contrasted with a sleek white sole that is constructed with an edgy, sawtooth outsole.
You can shop the Brian Kenny x Onitsuka Tiger D-Trainer Boro now at the brand’s in-store locations, as well as online. Along with the footwear release, the 26-piece collection also comprises of various apparel and accessories. Brian Kenny’s on-site live painting mural from the collection launch, which took place on September 10, will also be on display until the end of September at the Onitsuka Tiger concept store in NYC.
