hanon x asics gel lyte iii 'wildcats'

asics gel lyte ii wildcats hanon uk collaboration rare girls kicks girls trainers trainers for women

last week i received a very exciting delivery in the form of the asics x hanon gel lyte iii 'wildcat' release - and they are incredible! paying homage to the scottish wildcats running club, along with the animal that is native to the scottish highlands - the gel lyte iii is a bold statement release.

the gel lyte iii wildcat release is up there at the top of most asics collectors lists. with a super luxe suede upper and perforated detailing, it's unlike any other release i have - the quality is on point! 3m detailing runs through the branding, with the colour block panelling to compliment the native cat.

 one of my favourite design options for asics is colurblocking, it gives the shoe a bold look along with being a timeless trend. the burgundy compliments the burnt mustard upper perfectly, whilst the asics branding is tonal so gives the style an understated look. the hanon detailing to the ankle wrap is in matt black, making sure to stand out.

perfect for the summer, they haven't left my feet! i've been mixing them up with my rockwell by parra joggers, or a dress for when the sun is really shining! they did come with burgundy laces, which i am tempted to swap for - but the mustard allows for the full complete colour block look. 

ropeslaces were also kind enough as to send me some laces, so i'm going to lacing up some of my favourite asics releases in my next post - so look out for that!

ADYN - the legacy

mixing together mesh, jersey and leather to ultimate perfection ADYN clothing release the SS’14 lookbook for the legacy collection.

featuring a mix of male and female models, shot in monochrome I cannot even express how excited this collection makes me. the brand has gone from strength to strength with each release, pushing the boundaries of construction and fabric manipulation.

with a high-class sports luxe feel the garments are unisex, embodying perfectly the brands ethos of androgynous fashion. layering is still key for the brand, but this time is utilised to layer colours - creating beautiful geometric lines which guide your eyes to every detail and every finish.

i have fallen in love with the long sleeve jumper, with white mesh panelling to the arms. Each piece is constructed with panelling in tonal fabric or contrasting, giving each piece a strong almost armour like feel. another key favourite for me is the long line hoody, I love the silver/gold finishes to the toggles and zips, for me this brand encapsulate sports luxe and absolutely everything I love about this trend.

an official launch date has not yet been announced, but keep up to date by following the brands twitter, facebook and instagram accounts. its safe to say, come launch day I will be poised and ready to purchase – for now enjoy the beautiful lookbook images below.
