PONY has launched an exclusive capsule collection designed by South Korean fashion and industrial designer, Yong Bae Seok, who has collaborated with names likes Dolce & Gabbana, Diesel, Bally and Tod’s.
The PONY x Yong Bae Seok collection will reflect the brand’s US heritage and classic basketball style by looking into redesigning PONY’s signature City Wings. The collaborative line showcases the selection in premium quality leather while paying tribute to PONY’s original colors. It features six colorways – three for low cut and three for high cut.
Inspired by the strong angular lines of Zaha Hadid’s Vitra Fire Station, Yong added his modern interpretation into the design, with bold red and blue geometric block colors to give a strong visual impact.
The low cut features a trendy laceless elastic upper, replacing shoelaces while the high cut incorporates a velcro strap to provide quick adjustment and secure foothold. In addition, the signature City Wings logo is hidden underneath the strap.
The PONY X YONG BAE SEOK collection is available for pre-order from here, with a retail price of SGD249.90 (low cut) and SGD299.90 (high cut). Collection will be at Street Superior 2018 on 27 October where the first 30 customers get to meet Yong Bae Seok.
