Kohei Okita's "Reebok eightyone" Collection Merges Sports With Fashion
Named after Japan’s country code and Inspired by Tokyo.
Following a lauded VAINL ARCHIVE collaboration released last year, Reebok has tapped VA‘s Kohei Okita for another team-up.
This time around the design has crafted a special collection for the sportswear brand dubbed “Reebok eightyone.” The Spring/Summer 2020 range is named after Japan’s +81 country code and is inspired by, and born out of, Tokyo.
Ahead of the 2020 Summer Olympics in Tokyo, the collaborative range utilizes a clean color palette of black, brown and grey to highlight Okita’s material combinations and silhouette choices. According to the designer, “My goal with eightyone was to create a collection that feels different from all the products in Reebok’s large archive, both past and present.”
Leading the Reebok eightyone collection is a hooded rain jacket constructed of water-repellent woven nylon marked with a large contrasting CrossFit Delta logo at the chest accompanied by a pair of matching pants. Elsewhere in range is a similarly detailed tracksuit set, long-sleeve T-shirts and simple logo socks. Finishing things up are “Black” and “Teal-Grey” takes on the Zig Kinetica that continue the colorways found in last year’s VAINL ARCHIVE x Daytona DMX collab.
