This October, the high-street brand well-known for fusing international trends with Seoul's street style, Headline Seoul, will be Singapore's exclusive retailer of the NIKE Women's Air Revolution Sky Hi City Pack – a limited edition collection of sneakers inspired by the world’s most fashion-forward cities: NYC, London, Tokyo, Milan and Paris.
New York – They say if you can make it in New York City, you can make it anywhere. New yorkers are a tough bunch, and this black-on-black sneaker would fit right in with their all-black uniform. Inspired by the city’s rain-slicked cobblestones, black pony hair overlays are paired with a tonal print and a NYC lace dubre.
London – Inspired by London’s traditional Saville Row tailoring and 80s punk movement, this sneaker is a modern balance of English refinement and rebellion. There are many subculture references, a traditional British boot with distressed oxblood leather combined with herringbone textile upper, and a simplified embossed Union Jack flag.
Tokyo – The capital of Japan has long been lauded for holding onto traditional values while navigating a path to the forefront of global influence. Inspired by the traditional Japanese fabric-dying craft known as Kasuri with the sneaker’s indigo-hued weave, the Tokyo edition is represented by blending old world traditions with bold new world styles.
Milan – The culturally vibrant city is known for its bold style, and the bright red colour of this sneaker echoes that. Roman numerals 2013 compliment an embossed Italian flag and a distinctive speckled midsole. The vibrant culture of high fashion and impeccable quality inspired the Classic Florentine craftsmanship behind this edition.
Paris – Parisians are known for their effortlessly minimalist-chic style, emulated by girls and boys everywhere. This clean all-white sneaker features a paint-splattered paint effect also adds a gritty, graffiti-styled pop to an otherwise minimalist design. The Air Revolution’s signature strap can be untied to reveal a leather embossed insignia honoring Paris.
Headline Soul will also launch a special edition capsule apparel collection to complement each NIKE Sky Hi City Pack release, comprising of four dresses, two tops, one skirt, and one trousers.
