Editor’s Notes: Strength and persistence are the defining traits Naked and ASICS attempt to convey through their latest collaboration, a women’s exclusive collection that comprises two sneakers and a five-piece apparel collection.
With regards to the footwear, reflective silver detailing and ASICS and Naked co-branding give the collab and elevated feel, while a muted white and peacot colorway keeps things simple and lets the product speak for itself.
The apparel side of the collection is made up a running jacket, sports bra, T-shirt, leggings, and a duffle bag. Each piece features a navy color palette with white and sandstorm accents.
The apparel ranges in price from €30 (approximately $35) to €90 (approximately $105).
