Asics has tapped Copenhagen-based Cecilie Bahsen for a whimsical take on its GEL-NYC silhouette. Known for “introducing element of couture into everyday garments,” the label put a feminine touch on the sporty shoe by adorning it with hand-beaded and -embroidered silk flowers. Working off of a silver shoe, each one is adorned with three different flower colors: blue, silver or black. Each shoe took up to a week to complete and is offered in just 50 pairs in each color.
Priced at $380, ASICS and Cecilie Bahnsen’s GEL-NYC collaboration will launch in-store at Dover Street Market London store and ecommerce site on May 10, 2023. from May 10. In addition, Cecilie Bahsen is also raffling an handful of pairs here. Winners for the raffle will be drawn on May 11th at 6:00 AM EST.
