The creative minds over at Rowing Blazers are back with a new collaboration. This time around, the New York-based label serves up a new capsule collection with K-Swiss. The two have aligned to blend a nostalgic aesthetic with tennis heritage, offering up something iconic and classic. The collection consists of apparel and footwear, highlighting ’90s-inspired designs throughout. The capsule features a graphic pullover windbreaker, a French terry crewneck sweatshirt, nylon shorts, cotton twill caps, and a black cotton tee.
The collaboration also features a new take on the Si-18 sneaker. The silhouette features a ’90s color palette, collaborative Rowing Blazers x K-Swiss branding, and technical elements, including asymmetric midsoles and a D-R Cinch lacing system. Rowing Blazers founder Jack Carlson spoke about the collaboration. He stated: “I’ve been wearing K-Swiss since I was a kid, and the Si-18 is an iconic tennis shoe in a way that just a small number of sneakers are truly important in the history of athletic footwear. So this collaboration is very meaningful for me. I wanted to use a very wearable ‘90s palette, and I was inspired by the tennis gear I collected growing up, going to the Open, and attending tennis camps. Although rowing became my main sport, tennis was always my passion.”
