British designer Vivienne Westwood has teamed up with ASICS for a footwear collaboration which includes the GEL-Mai. The duo teased the partnership with an on-foot look at the low-top silhouette which will be joined by two other ASICSTIGER styles. The GEL-Mai holds a white base with red detailing throughout its frame. A sock detail is added to the pair giving it a more street-friendly profile. The duo shared a few details on the upcoming collection:
“ASICS and Vivienne Westwood share a long brand history of design and championed uniqueness — with quality, craftmanship and innovation at their core. This shared history and distinction to transcend the ordinary brought about this timely collaboration.”
The first two styles from the collaboration are scheduled to release in April 2019 exclusively at www.viviennewestwood.com and www.asics.com. The rest of the haul will follow over the year. Preview the GEL-Mai above and be sure to catch SZA in one of Vivienne Westwood’s couture gowns which she wore to the 2019 Oscars.
