Asics x GMBH
The third collaborative project between ASICS and Berlin fashion label GmbH has dropped. It is re-imagining of the GEL-NANDI™ 360 shoe. The new ASICS by GmbH GEL-NANDI™ 360 shoe model launches with two new colourways, in skeletal white and turquoise. The rendering of surfaces varies from slick and glossy to matt and tactile, echoing GmbH’s interest in juxtaposition of the synthetic and natural.
GmbH creates fashion through storytelling, craft and technology. With the GELNANDI ™ 360 sneaker, GmbH continues their research into the merging of artificial technologies, the natural world and the human body, drawing inspiration from water, near-future robotics and sci-fi. The white colour way is designed to appear like a spine and bones. The turquoise is based on childhood memories of the Aegean Sea. Bones and water, solid and liquid, and two essentials building blocks of the human body.
GmbH was founded in 2016 by Benjamin Huseby and Serhat Isik. The 2020 GmbH x ASICS GEL-NANDI™ 360 releases on Wednesday June 27th at selected retailers Globally.
