Asics Tiger announces its second collaborative project alongside BEAMS and mita sneakers, producing a capsule that includes apparel and footwear.
The project, titled Souvenir Jacket, was inspired by the Yokosuka Jacket, created as a souvenir for the American military serving in Japan. This popular style served as the point of reference for the items within the collection, including a velour hoodie and pants, a long sleeve t-shirt, and the GEL-LYTE III.
Asics GEL-LYTE III comes heavily detailed with iconic features such as a navy pigskin nubuck and velour upper, with an embroidered dragon face on the heel of the shoe. 'Japan' is lettered along the side of the shoe in an original script, with the same styling being used for the dual branding towards the tongue.
The insole includes graphic details, with a final dragon motif decorated with the outsole of the shoe.
Apparel items in the collection include a similarly adorned long sleeve t-shirt, in both navy and white, and a full velour tracksuit that references the original materials of the Souvenir Jacket.
The collection is available now from select stockists such as END, Hanon, and DSM.
