Onitsuka Tiger X Andrea Pompilio RTW Spring 2015

Onitsuka Tiger runway show was the last one for me this season and the best one yet in terms of entertainment. ^-^ Thanks to my friend Fabio, I got myself a VIP seat at the sponsor booth and an opportunity to wait for the start of the show there instead of lining up outside with the rest of the people for an hour. Yep, the show was fashionably late.

Andrea Pompilio is a designer for Onitsuka Tiger’s clothing line. He presented a very cool collection and an amazing show with 40!! models walking down a U-shaped runway. The finale was very dramatic – all the models lined up in rows on a separate stage for a final view of the entire collection.

I really liked some of the pieces like floor-grazing dresses, sweats with industrial tape-like stripes and gladiator sneakers. I also loved the styling of the models especially the feather crowns.

After the show, we were all invited to an after party at IDOL in Aoyama. I ran into a couple of friends so we decided to check it out together. One of them told me that when he was little, Onitsuka Tiger were the uncool, everyone-has-it type of sneakers and Adidas was something of a must-have. ^-^ Well, the brand did really well since. Old, forgotten labels are rebranding now with these cool, trending new looks and smart marketing campaigns. Look at the Birkenstock for crying out loud. Yes, they are still ridiculous but yes, I bought a pair this summer. ^-^

Amazing sticker art! The artist was creating the famous Shibuya crossing out of small colorful stickers.
