Editor’s Notes: After teaming up with ASICS on the GEL-Mai and GEL-Kayano 5 OG, legendary punk designer Vivienne Westwood takes on a trio of ASICS retro models: the GEL-Saga, GEL-DS, and Hyper GEL-Lyte.

In contrast to the busier GEL-Mai and GEL-Kayano 5 OG collabs, Westwood keeps things simple on the GEL-Saga, opting for an all-white leather look with contrasting branding on the heel. The killer detail is the translucent outsole featuring a Renaissance-style image on the bottom, as well as a tag that reads “CHAOS” on the medial side of the heel.

Both the GEL-DS and Hyper GEL-Lyte feature much busier uppers, with the GEL-Saga’s outsole graphic featuring on the upper of the Hyper GEL-Lyte for the most eye-catching and hardest to pull off look in the pack. The GEL-DS, meanwhile, features some bold hits of color contrasting a black upper.

All three styles drop tomorrow at select retailers.
