In our latest collaboration with Asics, we’re bringing historical context to today’s excessive luxury culture. The shoe and its related collection, part of our 25th anniversary collaborative series, takes inspiration from the Japanese tuna, and curators of bespoke restaurant culture.
The color palette and graphics of the “Four Days” apparel collection translate the Michelin vibe, along with nods to sushi-counter practices, across crewnecks, hoodies, shorts, sweatpants, socks and T-shirts. Wasabi, tuna and steel define the color schemes, while a new Concepts scrip logo draws from a 1952 Michelin guide.
Each garment is evidence of Concepts’ studied approach to fit and fabrication. The Concepts Icon hoodie, with a subtle drop shoulder in ode to ‘90s skate style, and sweatpants are built of 19.5oz cotton. T-shirts are made with a 10.5oz cotton body and contemporary relaxed fit. Nylon shorts, complete with a mesh liner, add versatility to the range.
