Maison Valentino is back with another collaboration, with iconic streetwear brand Onitsuka Tiger for the Men’s FW20/21 Collection.
In a conversation shared betweenPierpaolo Piccioli — Creative Director of Maison Valentino — and the Japanese sports-inspired fashion brand Onitsuka Tiger, the exclusive style of the renowned MEXICO 66 SD sneakers was conceived. The MEXICO 66 SD sneaker has since been reinterpreted by Pierpaolo Piccioli in four different shades with the Valentino V Logo on the side, that enhance the importance of the power of color — an iconic element for the Maison.
Keen enthusiasts of sports-centric fashion will know of Onistuka Tiger’s roots as a made-in-Japan fashion brand founded by Kihachiro Onitsuka in 1949. The label shares the same attitude and care in the attention to details and craftsmanship of Maison Valentino.
The sneakers will be on sale in selected Valentino boutiques worldwide and on valentino.com. To find out more about the collaboration, check this hashtag on Instagram: #OnitsukaTigerXValentinoGaravani.
