UPDATE: The Disney x ASICS Beauty and the Beast collection has dropped. The pack features no less than seven styles in colours and textiles inspired by the costumes worn by the characters in Disney's upcoming live-action release of Beauty and the Beast. Each sneaker features embossed 'Disney' branding, and an embroidered red rose on each heel. With the drop of the collection comes new on-foot pictures of the colourways, which you can persue at your leisure.
Head over to Titolo to cop a piece of Disney x ASICS Beauty and the Beast Collection.
Beauty and the Beast is set to return to the silver screen this March, translating the classic fable into a big-budget live action epic with an all-star ensemble cast. To tie-in with the film's release, Disney have collaborated with ASICS to produce a collection of footwear that is not only inspired by both Belle and The Beast, but also features actual fabrics and patterns found on costumes worn in the new film.
Belle is represented through soft colourways and delicate detailing, while The Beast is chanelled via a darker 'coffee bean' make-up. Both the GEL-Lyte III and GEL-Lyte V are included in the collection, with additional pairs looking to draw inspiration from sub-characters and the story's castle setting. Premium materials are utilised across the board, including suede, denim, leather and mesh. All pairs feature the Disney logo embossed into the upper.
The Disney x ASICS Beauty and the Beast Collection will launch through colette in Paris on March 3.
