In celebration of the one-year anniversary of the FOSS Gallery at Parkview Green in Beijing, FOSS and ASICS Tiger jointly launched the FOSS × ASICS Tiger GEL-LYTE III – FOSS GALLERY.
The cobranded design is the based on the ASICS Tiger GEL-LYTE III model. Launched in 1990 by ASICS Tiger, a marquee model in global sports lifestyle market, GEL-LYTE III has gained great popularity among sneaker aficionados with its timeless silhouette and remarkable comfort.
Combining inspiration from FOSS Gallery’s anniversary celebration and the concept of Gallery museum, the new FOSS × ASICS Tiger GEL-LYTE III FOSS GALLERY showcases high-quality leather texture and extraordinarily sophisticated details, highlighting a departure from the traditional black and white block-color design.
The large white section of the upper pays tribute to the interior colors of FOSS Gallery, providing a striking contrast to the black extending from the heel tab straight to midsole. Similar contrast can also be seen between the straight borderline of black and white as well as the decorative curves. This innovative double juxtaposition is a testimony to FOSS’s everlasting pursuit of artistry in design.
The underside of the FOSS × ASICS Tiger GEL-LYTE III FOSS GALLERY is also full of surprises. The GEL provides the comfort to the wearers. The translucent rubber outsole depicts a starry pattern – a conceptual interpretation of the Gallery theme. Just like a starscape masterpiece hangs soundlessly around the corner in a white small space.
FOSS GALLERY X ASICS GEL-LYTE III drops in-store this Saturday 22nd at limitEDitions WMNS .
