Friend of the site, Storm Pedersen, wrote about this collab on his blog on Friday but it's possible impact on fashionable performance gear means we'll address it as well.
French fashion houses have long known of the attraction of luxury sneakers. Dior Homme, Lanvin, Givenchy and Maison Martin Margiela, among others, all have all been embraced in recent years by the sneaker world. Yet most of these designer forays are purely aesthetic, so it will be interesting to see if Mr. Tisci incorporates any performance aspects into the design. Surely, the collaboration will be a sold out hit, but whether or not the pieces are performance ready will set the bar for fashion houses' future ventures.
And ten days into the year we already have a new number one most anticipated collaboration for 2014.
