ASICS teamed up with Sonia Carrasco on her AW21 collection titled "-75.500000, -106.750000“, referring to the Thwaites Glacier coordinates, the most important and endangered glacier in the world. Known for her ready-to-wear womenswear collections that associate with style as much as with environmental and social commitments. The brand carefully select and use recycled, vegan or organic fibres and work with suppliers who match their social commitment values.
The GEL-KAYANO™14 model was a natural choice for Sonia Carrasco to include in her AW21 presentation, as nurturing a sound mind is of utmost importance to her. This fresh take on its retro running shape in the white and pure gold colourway compliment the fabrics in Carrasco's collection. Which stand out for their natural and nostalgic tones: beige, brown, natural green and navy, known to us in a time of accelerated change and saturated colours such as yellow and green which are inspired by digital culture and the information overload.
Carrasco’s AW21 collection video was aired February 20th, 2021 as part of her London presentation. Filmed in front of some of Barcelona’s landmarks demonstrating that, art becomes the remedy to allow our minds to be free. Reflecting on our current desires to want to go out, see people, do things which are restricted, giving art and culture the recognition, it deserves.
