ASICS GEL LYTE V x COLETTE "YAKUTA"
When in Paris, visit the Louvre, the Eiffel Tower…. and obviously Colette. The iconic Parisian store is set to release yet another banging collaboration with Asics. This time Colette has chosen the Gel Lyte V in their latest endeavors, sticking to their corporate color’s white and blue. Two different versions will take form, one with a blue dominating upper, white accent marks and an all-around premium treatment. It's counterpart in white, with blue accent marks is just as good, making both must-haves. The inspiration behind the sneaker is the “Yakuta”, a lighter version of the Japanese kimono, classically embossed with beautiful details that are visible in both sneakers. The blue colorway of the Asics Gel Lyte V x Colette is a very limited drop (150 pairs worldwide) that will be released on Saturday, October 22nd, only at Colette in Paris and United Arrows & Sons in Tokyo. While the white colorway will have a little wider release and will be launched on Saturday, October 29th, in selected Asics retailers worldwide, such as End, Wellgosh and Hanon.
