Inspired by the Latin phrase Anima Sana in Corpore Sano, meaning a sound mind in a sound body, the collection works as an ode to the fundamental elements of the saying, which has been at the core of Asics since the creation of the brand.
The collection focuses on the feelings of escapism and serenity as well as adventure and play which can be discovered in different elements of the styles. Hues of stone wash, graphite, red clay as well as shades of greenery, aruba blue, and cherry blossom take inspiration from escapades to the great outdoors.
