Fashion designer Pablo Ruizgalán and visual artist Nuria Blanco have collaborated with Onitsuka Tiger through a personal re-interpretation of the legendary California 78 sport shoe. In doing so, RUIZGALÁN’S ‘New Life’ menswear collection will have its own shoes line on the catwalk. Catwalk video
To create the new version of the California 78 shoe, these creators have been inspired by the ‘New Life’ philosophy, based on the reutilization of manufactured ítems in order to create new garments. In this case, they have covered the shoe with several layers of japanese paper. The final result combines craftsmanship and a unique visual appearance.
