K-SWISS & Palladium Boots Spring/Summer 2012 Showroom
K-Swiss and Palladium teamed up this week to preview their latest and greatest styles for Spring/Summer 2012 to top editors and bloggers. The preview was held at the K-Swiss/Palladium showroom in New York.
In performance footwear, K-Swiss showed off the Kona pack that their roster of professional triathletes raced in at the Ironman World Championships on October 8th. From lightweight racing flats to quick transition running shoes, editors were impressed with the brand’s commitment to running. K-Swiss also introduced two signature shoes: the FLY Tubes designed by America’s Toughest Trainer Jillian Michaels, and the Tubes Monfils Mid, designed by French tennis star and K-Swiss athlete Gael Monfils. In apparel, the second capsule of Jillian Michaels Collection by K-Swiss caught the eye of the top women’s pubs with bright colorways and flattering lines. The collection will launch November 15th on Amazon.com. And for those looking for a low-profile, clean sneaker – keep your eyes out for the Deuce in 2012. Available in an array of colors, it’s the classic California style that K-Swiss is known for.
Palladium Boots unveiled Spring ‘12 with their Lite, Slim and Blanc Collections. To make the boots warm weather appropriate, each line features a new spin on Palladium’s iconic style. From Oxford and Chukka silhouettes to vibrant hues and breathable fabrics, Palladium’s Spring Collection incorporates the brand’s classic design cues while introducing new, seasonal updates. Editors loved the new pop colors in the Lite collection, the sleekness of the Slim styles and the sportiness of Blanc. Palladium’s buzzed about collaborations with UK fashion labels Neil Barrett and Maharishi were also on display, now available on www.palladiumboots.com.
