After two successful collaborations in 2013 and 2016, le coq sportif and 24 Kilates Barcelona have teamed up again for an exclusive version of Flash and, for the second time, a textile collection.
As a tribute to the running shoe models of the 1990s, le coq sportif and 24 Kilates are giving the Flash, the brand’s iconic running model, a do-over. Along with its characteristic shape, the model boasts the colours, patterns and materials typical of the decade. The pair is in retro white nylon-with ice blue base and sheen contrasting the matte quality of the white leather. On the inside of the shoe, navy blue stripes meet a yoke insert to create a pea coat effect. A navy suede yoke bears le coq sportif, above the 24 Kilates logo, both embossed in ice blue leather. The inner lining is white sponge. The pair comes with 3 laces in different colours and on the tip of each lace is “24 KILATES – BARCELONA” and on the other, “24 KILATES– BANGKOK”, referring to the two stores.
This retro spirit continues with a mini collection of three textile pieces, in the same shades and patterns as the Flash. The t-shirt with Navy blue stripes on white also bears le coq sportif, dividing the right sleeve in half. The sweats play with the sneaker codes: stripes, solid navy and glacier blue, the logos of collaboration. Finally, the collection is completed with a pair of white logo socks.
The new le coq sportif x 24 Kilates collaboration will be available from April 7 2018, on the e-shop lecoqsportif.com as well as in selected stores such as Shoez Gallery in France, Sneakers76 in Italy, Hanon in the United Kingdom and of course, 24 Kilates in Spain and Bangkok.
