Japanese fashion brand Onitsuka Tiger has revealed its 2021 Spring/Summer Collection which combines fashion with sports, heritage, and innovation.日
Look Book (Excerpt)
The concept for the 2021 Spring & Summer Collection is “The Onitsuka Tiger Attitude” which incorporates the brand’s attitude not only into the product details and branding but each and every collection piece. The collection is divided into four themes: “THE SAILING KITE,” “THE CLEAN LINES,” “THE VINTAGE IS NOW,” and “THE WORKING PROGRESS.” The line-up is inspired by the blowing winds and the sails of a boat on the ocean.
The shoes fuse elements from Onitsuka Tiger’s footwear archive with contemporary designs to create all-new models. The “ACROMOUNT” takes inspiration from the brand’s 1970’s array combining fabric and leather for a vintage feel. The “DENITGRE,” a popular long-selling model which also appeared in the 2020 Autumn & Winter Collection, arrives as a hybrid model in the new “DENITIGRE MX.” The “TAI-CHI-REB™️ SOCK MT” features a slim form with embroidered uppers.
The collection’s colour palette is a mix of highlight colours like orange and saxe blue as well as black, green, burgundy, and more, capturing that Onitsuka Tiger spirit while infusing into contemporary pieces for a fresh result.
