Abstract photo prints, bold stripes and a botanical line drawing covered much of Andrea Pompilio’s collection for Japanese sportswear brand Onitsuka Tiger. While the only colors the designer used were red, white and black, he played with different textiles for an updated, athletic-meets-street look.
Pompilio sent out coats and jackets in a raw-edged, feltlike material, while T-shirts and cowl-neck minidresses were done in a high-tech jersey. He also used mesh, attaching it to the hems of tops or at the low necklines and backs of long, sexy jersey dresses with extreme slits up both legs.
Accessories were an important part of the offering, with most looks featuring a lanyard holding what looked like a luggage tag. Bags, from backpacks to duffels, were far cooler than your standard gym bag, while still looking very functional. In his finale, Pompilio showed branded surf boards and swimwear that mixed style and function — making it perfect for lounging on the beach as well as swimming laps.
