Japanese brand Onitsuka Tiger’s deconstructed streetwear is a favorite among streetwear enthusiasts. The brand’s take on the quintessential approach to tactical design that celebrates its distinct Japanese aesthetic sensibility brings a new palette to the Indian scene. The brand will open its first flagship store in the Phoenix mall this month alongside the unveiling of its new collection. For this genderless collection, creative director Andrea Pompilio uses her signature monochrome palette to highlight their signature details like silhouette construction and styling that speaks pure punk rock with a series of velvet dresses. The collection offers layering versatility with its nylon jackets, maxi Bermuda shorts, midi pleated skirts and multi-pocket vests. The collection will be available online and in-store.
