Andrea Pompilio x Onitsuka Tiger

Spring Summer 2013 is the season of sportive influences in menswear. Many collaborations of fashion designers with sports/streetwear brands are happening this season . From Kenzo and Vans, Missioni and Converse... us boys are seemingly not getting tired of our sneakers:-)

To add to the list of collaborations to keep watch for in SS2013, look out for this amazing pair of trainers (and matching menswear collection) by talented new designer, Andrea Pompilio and Japanese streetwear label Onitsuka Tiger. Established in 1949 by Kihachiro Onitsuka (founder of Asics), the Onitsuka Tiger brand began with a commitment to promoting youth health, and since then, their Tiger Stripe have become synonymous with one of the most world-renowned athletic brands.

Fast forward to SS2013, Andrea Pompilio has injected his design aesthetics into Onitsuka Tiger’s signature trainers. As a purveyor of colour, Andrea introduced a bright yellow accent to his interpretation.  Mesh material are also used to ensure ‘airy’ comfort. The result is a functional and incredible looking design at a super attainable price point. Retails for SGD290 at Club 21b Singapore. So grab them before they are gone! :-P
