Earlier this month, it was revealed that the streetwear brand’s founder ASAP Bari would join forces with Tidal and Sprint to livestream Vlone’s first-ever runway show during Men’s Fashion Week in Paris. The event will also present the brand’s first cut-and-sew pieces as well as designs crafted in Japan and Italy, according to WWD.
“I might do a denim program. I might do some leather pieces. I’m not sure,” Bari told the publication.
Despite the vague details, it’s clear the Harlem native will deliver something we’ve never seen in a Vlone collection. Previous releases have been dominated by streetwear staples like graphic tees, hoodies, and crewneck sweatshirts. This latest range will likely demonstrate Bari’s growth and development as a designer as well as mark a new direction for the brand.
The Spring/Summer 2018 collection, titled Black History, will be presented at 8:30 a.m. ET on Friday. Tidal subscribers and Sprint customers can livestream the event at Sprint.TIDAL.com.
Maybe we’ll get another look at those Vlone x Nike Air Force 1s Bari teased earlier this week.
