Givenchy and Onitsuka Tiger Surprise Collaborate at Pitti Uomo
As the special guest at Pitti Uomo 2019, Givenchy presented its own runway today with a surprise collaboration with Japanese footwear brand Onitsuka Tiger. The collaboration marks Givenchy‘s first ever footwear partner outside of their own brand and the first Japanese brand to work with an haute couture brand. Artistic Director Clare Waight Keller has been personally spotted sporting the pair.
Givenchy’s French savoir-faire perfectly aligned with Japanese skill and attention to detail in shoemaking. Their final product is a sneaker style dubbed MEXICO 66 GDX that comes in two variations: white leather and a black leather option. Both options feature a dual inscription: Givenchy – Onitsuka Tiger, on the back tab. The black sneaker is also highlighted by details in red and white outlines.
Givenchy x Onitsuka Tiger sneakers for women and men are priced at 450€ available for purchase at Givenchy and Onitsuka Tiger flagship stores worldwide, at the first-ever Line pop-up in Japan and online through givenchy.com and selected social media.
