Asics Goes High Fashion With Cecilie Bahnsen
Sneakers have entered the world of couture.
Whoever said that sneakers can’t be high fashion? Certainly not Ascis and Cecilie Bahnsen. For a special collaboration, the Japanese activewear brand has partnered with Danish womenswear label Cecilie Bahnsen and together have created a limited edition footwear collection. The trainers prove to be a perfect blend between the brands, as Bahnsen’s simplicity and femininity is merged with staple styles from the activewear brand. Each trainer is embellished with couture techniques, such as beadwork and appliques, bringing each shoe to a high fashion level.
“With Asics its always been about movement, motion and mindfulness—having fun and ease. I think that type of comfort really speaks to our brand too, and how we love to wear the collection—so it lends itself perfectly to this collaboration,” says Cecilie Bahnsen in an exclusive press release.
The range of footwear had originally been presented at the Cecilie Bahnsen Spring/Summer 2023 runway shoe. Beyond the unique techniques utilized in the craftsmanship, the collection also stands out from the use of upcycled materials in ode to a more sustainable touch. The collection ranges from sizes EU 35.5 to 41.5 and includes 50 pairs of trainers. On top of all this, Asics and Cecilie Bahnsen will be donating a portion of their proceeds to Right To Play, a non-profit organization meant to educate and empower children through the power of sports.
