Known for her drawings and paintings of composed or colors and organic forms, Yamase injected her unique aesthetic by adding a handcrafted feel to the classic silhouettes. Inspired by local parks, the collection features watercolor and threading visuals of organic formations representing natural elements.
For the Air Force 1 Flyleather, the shoe is swiped in hues of Crimson Bliss and Signal Blue along the upper foot and with similar strokes in place of branding on the tongue tag, insole and heel tab. Turf Orange and Copa colors surround the Blazer Low Flyleather in a similar fashion as the Air Force 1, with both silhouettes accompanied by custom packaging.
Mayumi Yamase’s Nike Flyleather Collection will drop on June 8 at 10:00 p.m. EDT via the brand’s official website. The Nike Air Force 1 Flyleather will retail for $130 USD, while the Blazer Low Flyleather will go for $100 USD.
