A fusion of avant-garde fashion and athletic functionality, Sacai and Jean Paul Gaultier return to their co-branded collaboration with Nike with their latest Vaporwaffle release.
This collaboration marks a follow-up to their groundbreaking partnership in the early 2020s, with the three parties set to drop in two new woven colorways, each radiating a unique charm.
The release features a white/grey colorway, exuding a minimalist and sophisticated aura that could be a subtle homage to one of sacai's earlier LDWaffle versions. In contrast, the multi-color variant bursts with a playful palette reminiscent of sacai's original color explorations. This model features an eye-catching arrangement of intertwined ribbons in red, royal blue, yellow, and green, creating a dynamic, almost glitch-like pattern.
While the first images of this collaboration don't overtly showcase Jean Paul Gaultier's branding, the influence of the renowned French fashion house is undeniably woven into the design's DNA. This collaboration is a testament to the seamless fusion of high fashion and athletic innovation.
Enjoy a teaser look at the two colorways on offer below, and look for these to be released exclusively on the Jean Paul Gaultier website at 12 pm CET (6 am EST) on November 22nd.
