KIKO KOSTADINOV EXTENDS HIS RELATIONSHIP WITH ASICS

Linked in one way or another to the big names in fashion, Kiko Kostadinov’s history can be explained through the collaborations that have cemented his career. The approach to a historical streetwear giant like Gimme Five, Stüssy’s reinvention with which they celebrated the brand’s anniversary, his utilitarian approach to Camper, his internship at Aitor Throup along with Errolson Hugh, his collections for Mackintosh, the creation of Affix, a mixcloud for Know Wave reconverted into a brand and of course his collaboration with ASICS.

All of this from an insulting youth and a particular approach to workwear, a real utilitarianism that is focused on function but goes way beyond that. A style based on cuts and the combinations of inherited colors from work uniforms. 

His new collection for ASICS incorporates fabric and footwear that blends his usual focus with technical details of the Japanese brand and that is inspired by dystopian thrillers from the seventies and a colourful wardrobe design. The ASICS Gel-Nepxa is formed by different layers of translucent mesh and different layers of leather that are superimposed and cover the heel with an adjustable closure.

The collection also includes a textile capsule that keeps with the same spirit in which futuristic references and colors from the sixties are blended.
