Progressive California clothiers Publish Brand and Onitsuka Tiger have come together to launch the Publish Brand x Onitsuka Tiger collaboration. Since 2010, Publish Brand has reinterpreted contemporary menswear through a conceptual lens to revive classic styles in a new light. Re-launched in 2002, Onitsuka Tiger elevates the worlds of lifestyle and performance with premium collections of shoes, apparel and accessories. This spring, both entities team up for a special project inspired by the modern-day traveling photographer.
Publish Brand x Onitsuka Tiger presents premium executions of the COLORADO EIGHTY-FIVE® MT SAMSARA™ model. With design roots that trace back to the 1980s, the heritage runner has been updated with a higher heel height, rugged outsole unit and suede upper materials. This collaborative interpretation of the COLORADO EIGHTY-FIVE MT SAMSARA model is lightweight, durable and fashionable, making it an ideal footwear piece for the creative nomad. Offered in two colorways, the deconstructed trail runner silhouette emerges in a soft, earth-toned style representing daylight and a dark, eclipse-colored rendition inspired by nightfall. Perforated detailing, tonal rope laces and subtle co-branding complete the trim package of each pair.
To introduce Publish Brand x Onitsuka Tiger collaboration in an elevated presentation, Publish Brand and Onitsuka Tiger have partnered with global photography collective Team Cozy to produce a unique visual narrative. Influenced by the wanderlust and creativity that fueled this collaboration, Team Cozy created a photo series featuring the COLORADO EIGHTY-FIVE MT SAMSARA model throughout various cultural epicenters of the world such as Tokyo, San Francisco, Sydney and Toronto.
The Publish Brand x Onitsuka Tiger COLORADO EIGHTY-FIVE MT SAMSARA model retails for $120 USD and releases on April 23 at www.publishbrand.com and select boutique accounts.
