Carhartt WIP x Marni Shirt
What’s better than a two-way? A three-way. For Kiko Kostadinov’s latest hookup with Asics, the duo recruited a third collaborator: Hysteric Glamour. The highly influential Japanese brand was born on the streets of Tokyo in 1984, before making its way onto the backs of in-the-know underground kids in New York, London and LA in the ’90s and ’00s. For this collab, the Asics Gel-Quantum Lylia’s are given a facelift, complete with a pearly glitter finish and a unique shoe lacing system first used in the Skysensor Slash JJ as seen in Asics' archive. Then, over to KK x HG, which merges pop-coloured prints and subversive designs with everyday casuals. Here you'll find a tasty mix of stripes, car sticker prints and “Kiko Hys” logos slapped on skirt-trouser combos straight outta Harajuku, zip-through denim jackets and elaborate prints on knits. Three is definitely not a crowd.

And for that, the practically of camo in its traditional sense is put on the backburner. Camouflage up for a bender and you’ll stick out like a nun at a rave, but that’s all part of the fun.
Just two months after Maximilian Davis’ killer debut as Ferragamo’s new creative director at Milan Fashion Week, the Italian house is already delivering the goods – literally.

Just in time for party season, you can get your hands on the second-skin suede, curved heels, harness-detailed trousers and ruby red sparkles that made September’s show so memorable. It might not be the season of giving just yet, but we’d say that’s pretty generous.
