Andrea Pompilio and Onitsuka Tiger take to Tokyo to show the latest collaborative collection for Fall/Winter 2014. Moving things to Japan as opposed to the past shows in Milan, the Pesaro-born designer reinterpreted Onitsuka’s athletic foundations by meshing technical materials in with urban and street undertones. Given the theme name “Urban Spaceman,” the collection is catered to a younger audience as seen in the use of silver/reflective accents, more relaxed cuts, and the focus on hooded sweatshirts and Thailand pants. Pompilio also played with geometric shapes and patterns to help relay a futuristic message in each piece, visible in a few of the pants, but mostly in the accessories and footwear. The change in pace for Onitsuka Tiger has once again proved to be successful as they continue to explore more technical and lifestyle-driven offerings.
