October 26, 2022
Hinting at a forthcoming collaboration during her Paris Fashion Week show, pairing her synonymous dresses with trainers for Spring 2023, Cecilie Bahnsen injects her ultra feminine touch to Japanese sportswear brand, Asics.
Both Bahnsen and ASICS pride themselves on their focus on movement, merging their creative visions together and reimagining styles from the Sport Style and Running collections, and carefully embellishing each pair with couture elements. Cecilie and her design team hand stitched the floral beads and appliqués in the brand’s studio in Copenhagen, showcasing their known Scandinavian savoir-faire on each of the 50 shoes.
Beginning a collaboration that is set to evolve further in 2023, the two brands will be donating sales from the trainers to the international non-profit charity, Right To Play – an organisation who protect and educate children to utilise the power of sport and teach them critical skills and to embrace opportunities.
Featuring the ASICS GEL-1090, GEL-1130, GEL-NIMBUS 9, GEL-NIMBUS 23 and GEL-NIMBUS 24, the collection utilizes hand stitched floral beads and appliqués. Carefully crafted at Bahnsen’s Copenhagen studio, the pairs focus on ASICS’ brand ethos of “Sound Mind, Sound Body.” Blending activewear with couture, each pair is designed to have fun with ease.
