At its third season, the Onitsuka Tiger X Andrea Pompilio represents the perfect union between the sportswear heritage of the Japanese brand and the Italian creativity of Andrea Pompilio.
For the SS2014 the designer took inspiration from the musicians, artists and break-dancers that enliven the streets of the most underground neighborhoods in Los Angeles.
The prints, Andrea Pompilio’s signature feature, blend together with Onitsuka Tiger’s Collection in a kaleidoscope of computerized, sprayed and tattooed graphics that recall the artworks of urban writers.
The tiger, icon of the Japanese brand, keeps being reinterpreted as if it was free to express all its strength, and applied to outerwear, sweatshirts, trousers, shorts and t-shirts.
For the first time, a capsule collection for women is added to the traditional men’s line, maintaining its strong street style personality.
The colors recall the freshness of California, with clear references to Downtown L.A.’s graffitis.
The accessories line of backpacks, caps and visors has a touch of the original Los Angeles ’80s Hip Hop style revisited with a contemporary vision.
