New Balance Tokyo Design Studio Our Release Info
Recruiting once again the creative talents of Japan and the latent modeling prowess of multi-trait David Marx, New Balance is designed for an expansive launch of Tokyo Design Studio’s latest entry in the Reveal series: the RC_2. While the first iteration had the support of nanamica, this new foray was led by the minimalist tailoring workshop AURALEE whose overall design and earth tones bleed deeply into these next four. Arriving in pairs to the same stylizations, one set goes for more solid pops of black and gray with a red lining while the other prefers layering of brown hues alongside the same neutrals. Translucent cages mask the profiles of the upper while an over-branded GORE-TEX liner fills in the voids in the underlays. Blends of suede, leather and more complete this pair in a collision effort that mixes American and Japanese sensibilities.
If you want to pick up any of the pairs seen in detail below, expect their release to be scattered throughout this month. First, they’ll debut at $ 200 USD in their hometown of Japan on March 9, and then exclusively at Notre on March 16. A wider global release will then be scheduled for March 23.
