ASICS TIGER RELEASES THE GEL-LYTE V ‘AIX-EN-PROVENCE’


ASICS Tiger's latest release is inspired by a late-night Provençal picnic and lavender.

The sides of Mount St.Victoire have been thickly coated in Lavender for as long as anyone can remember. It was this Lavender covered mountain that Paul Cezanne immortalised in some of his most famous works and it is the purple flower that is the inspiration for the latest release from Asics Tiger.

The Gel-Lyte V is a subtle progression within the GEL-Lyte series that features a sole unit with a stability insert, GEL pad at the heel and P-GEL in the forefoot, as well as a sleeker, more form-fitting toe design to create extra comfort. It’s a more flexible and lighter sneaker. A product of this time and an intelligent piece of performance shoe design. 

The ASICS Gel-Lyte V 'Aix-en-Provence' is here to to celebrate summer —a French style shoe, inspired by late night picnics, summer and lavender. 

The Gel-Lyte V 'Aix-en-Provence' will be available from 29th July retailing at £115 and available from Footpatrol in London. 

Such a gorgeous colourway! We want these on our feet!

(RE)CREATE - WHO’S NEXT & PREMIERE CLASSE REDEFINE 'UP-CYCLING'


You're probably thinking, "What is 'up-cycling?", well up-cycling is a process - a design method that involves taking old vintage pieces, adapting and transforming them, and giving them a new lease of life. Far more than just a concept, up-cycling above all marks a significant environmental choice. It's also, let’s not forget, a display of genuine creative vision, a desire to surpass an item’s original purpose and out of it to create something that is infinitely more beautiful and unique. 

With a firm eye on the future, Who’s Next and Premiere Classe have invited seven promising young designers to take part in an up-cycling styling exercise as part of the (RE)CREATE project.

PUMA X CAREAUX AW16


For AW16, PUMA collaborates with Careaux for the very first time and we think the pair are the most perfect fit!

Netherlands-born graphic designer and self-confessed sneakerhead, Caroll Lynn aka Careaux, , is recognised globally for her femme meets street style and digital artwork inspired by sneakers. PUMA have teamed with her to create a collection that reflects on the five most significant people throughout her life’s journey.

The collection sees a colourful and optimistic hallmark infused throughout, evident from the palette of the footwear to the aesthetic of the apparel designs.

The hallmark floral design ‘Dedication Flower’ using the triangle gradient style became Caroll Lynn’s life signature and she continually uses it to find beauty and strength in dark, difficult times. The colourful and optimistic motif reflects Caroll Lynn’s personality and is infused throughout the debut collaboration.
