For SS20, the sophomore collaboration between YMC and ASICS SportStyle takes design cues from the ‘Madchester’ scene of the late 1980s. Launching on the 5th of April, the collaboration gives us the ASICS Tarther OG shoe, a style originally released in 1983. By the Summer of 1987 – with the rave movement in full swing – this style was a mainstay on the feet of party-goers across the UK.
Aesthetically speaking, rave culture was a melting pot of juxtaposing styles. Sportswear was blended with prints from different cultures, and here YMC and ASICS Sportstyle celebrate this unique combination of styles with two distinctive colour ways, in Midnight Blue and Caramel Brown.
