Footpatrol x BEAMS x Saucony 'Only in Tokyo' Collection

Footpatrol x BEAMS x Saucony 'Only in Tokyo' Collection

Our first collaborative project with U.S sportswear brand Saucony saw in the creation of the Shadow 6000 a.k.a the 'Only in Soho'. We're back for Winter '15 and have brought Japanese retail giants BEAMS with us on the triple-collaboration of the Footpatrol x BEAMS x Saucony 'Only in Tokyo' Collection.

Moving forward from our previous, well received collaboration with Saucony on the Shadow 6000 'Only in Soho', we were keen to continue the 'Only in...' theme on a future project. We first met the BEAMS team upon their team trip to London in 2014. With both ourselves and BEAMS having worked with Saucony in the past, when the opportunity in working on a three-way collaboration came to light, we were more than happy to take part!

Coming from a a more sports driven Streetwear background, we looked to creating a premium collection that showcased both brands vision. With BEAMS expertise in fashion design, and our attention to detail on footwear, we decided on creating a collection consisting of footwear and matching apparel.

Saucony presented us with the recently retro'd 90's runner the Grid 8000 to work our magic on..! The Grid 8000 'Only in Tokyo' is made up of an Off-White, premium, pig-skin suede upper with woven BEAMS sock material underlays on the toe-box, sidewalls and heel. As the underlay panels are made up of the sock fabric, each pairs is unique in colour, meaning you may see a slight variation of colours on the woven panels. Orange accents on the toe-box wrap, lacing system and a reflective panel on the heel. A the top of the suede tongue is a flip embroidered tongue label featuring the BEAMS & Saucony brand logos on the right foot and the Footpatrol Gasmask & Saucony brand logo on the left. On the flipside reveals the words 'Only in Tokyo'. The Off-White theme continues on the premium leather inner lining, with a contrast Orange pig-skin suede footbed. The 'Only in Tokyo' tag is debossed in the centre of the footbed with brand logos printed in white. Three sets of laces accompany the shoe - Off-White, White and a multi-coloured flecked lace with reflective details.

Sitting alongside the the footwear is a four-piece apparel collection consisting of Tees, a Hood, and matching Track Pants. The 'Only in Tokyo' Tracksuit comes in a Beige colour with Orange accents on the elbow patches and hood lining. Dark Beige details feature on the kangaroo pouch (with side and front entry) complete Saucony branding in applique form, and the zip hood. BEAMS and Footpatrol brand logos are embroidered on the right and left sleeve cuffs. Intricate details like the elbow patches that resemble the shape of a footbed and multi-coloured drawstring on the hood are both a nod to the footwear. Complementing the hood are the matching Track Pants - featuring Orange lined side pockets with dual-brand logos embroidered beneath. The Saucony applique sits on the outer side of the right leg.

Completing the apparel collection is the 'Only in Tokyo' Tee, available in two colour options Black/Orange and Beige/Orange feature both brand logos on the left breast with the 'Only in Tokyo' tag emblazoned on the back.
