Sportswear Meets Minimalism for Onitsuka Tiger AW ‘22
Onitsuka Tiger presented a sportswear-heavy Autumn/Winter 2022 collection reminiscent of the 80’s, boxing and contemporary minimalist appeal.
The AW22 collection can be described in one word: “Shadow” It is also a tribute to the eighties when the Japanese aesthetic of “purity and austerity” blasted Western aesthetics, where luxury and opulence were considered to be the height of beauty.
From oversized kimonos to kaftans, the exaggerated sizing is flattering to a bevy of consumers, which makes this particular brand a hot commodity. Oftentimes, extended sizing isn’t thought of, and this presentation showcased many different body-friendly options.
The only distinctive embellishment in the overall simple, minimalist, and unified collection is the flame and flower prints on the hems of various apparel items. A slightly Gothic&Girlie taste, slightly modern rock star style velour dresses, a tribute to Sukajan jackets, and mini dresses with a drawstring waist.
Additionally, the runway show featured eyewear from the optical brand Kaneko Optical, flanked by ultra-cool and show-stopping new luxury.
