Onitsuka Tiger celebrates its platinum anniversary with a special collaboration. For its 70th, the brand teamed with seven designers from Japan and elsewhere, with CINOH's designer Takayuki Chino being the first on the line-up.
Working on the OK BASKETBALL LO model, Chino adds the distinctive CINOH signature of white and navy colours to the white uppers. It's an amalgamation of enamel leather and canvas and different colours are used for the left and right shoelaces and soles (the hues remind us of Kendrick Lamar's collab with Reebok's Ventilator model). They look clean, sleek and we doubt anyone would wear them to actually play basketball.
Accompanying these sneakers are a suit, with tri-colour running down the sides. The men get a single-breasted jacket and the women, the double-breasted but we're all about the gender neutrality, so feel free to switch between the two, to see what strikes your fancy. Already, the suit's design lends a stately air to it, while retaining a certain sportiness to it.
CINOH is an auspicious start to this collab. Keep your eye out for the next six coming up soon for Onitsuka Tiger's anniversary.
The Onitsuka Tiger x CINOH shoes retail for SGD149, and the jacket and pants at SGD369 and SGD199 respectively. They are only available at Onitsuka Tiger Ngee Ann City and Jewel Changi Airport.
