Say what you will about Malcom McLaren, but the always controversy courting, cultural impresario possessed an almost instinctual sense of the next big thing in pop music. In the autumn/winter of 1982/83, the new direction was a joyous rejection of the contemporary, technology dependent society, and an embrace of pre and post-industrial primitivism. In short, a backlash against the heavily processed looks and sounds of the synth-pop dominating the music scene.

 

Musically, the latest McLaren project Bow Wow Wow led the charge with singles like Go Wild In the Country and Jungle Boy. Visually, regular collaborator Vivienne Westwood would define the moment with her legendary Buffalo Girls collection.

 

The latest collaborative effort from ASICS and Vivienne Westwood references this slice of fashion history, with an iteration of the Gel Kayano 26 based on a bag and sack shoe from the Buffalo collection. The high performance of the Kayano expresses punk’s and anarchic, convention defying ethos, as the upper is encased in a adjustable toggle secured open mesh net. A tonal application of Vivienne Westwood’s signature orb logo rounds out this fusion of avant garde rawness and modern functionality.
