In Fashion: Jay Versace, Frankie Collective, and More! Reebok Launches 90s Inspired Campaign + Capsule Collection Giveaway

In 1993, Reebok launched the Aztrek: an off-road runner that perfectly represented the wildly original and experimental designs of the time. Relaunched 25 years later, the Aztrek’s super-futuristic layers and chunky design embrace the heart of 1990s sneaker style. To celebrate the Aztrek’s return and honor the spirit of the ‘90s-era style it embodies, Reebok has launched a campaign featuring six ‘90s-raised tastemakers for a content series titled “Aztrek: 90s Re-Run.”

Featuring the likes of social media sensation Jay Versace, vintage streetwear re-worker Sara Gourlay of Frankie Collective, cult vintage shop owner Kirk Tilton of For All to Envy and more, the campaign was shot on a variety of mediums that champion the Aztrek’s past and celebrate it within the context of contemporary culture and style.

Each partner was shot in rare vintage ‘90s Reebok gear that they personally curated or custom created – resulting in five unique “one-of-one” capsule collections, all of which will be available for anyone to enter to win on Reebok.com starting today. Sourced from their own personal wardrobes, along with hours of vintage shopping, each collection nods to the singular style of the 1990s, as well as the Aztrek’s distinctive design elements and colorways.

Shot on film as an homage to ‘90s visual culture, the campaign imagery and videos span five truly epic off-road locations, illustrating the sneaker’s evolution from an off-path performance shoe to symbol for ‘90s-inspired style. From the pristine beauty of upstate New York’s national parks, to the enigmatic Joshua Tree and Death Valley desert landscapes and Utah’s breathtaking slot canyons, the campaign showcases the Aztrek’s new Fall/Winter colorways against unique off-road environments and vibrant landscapes.

Check out the visual campaign above.

Alongside the relaunched Aztrek, all individual partner capsule collections will be available to win via a giveaway on Reebok.com – a platform for individuals to recreate their own ‘90s-inspired style. To enter to win, the rules are:

  1. Be a U.S. resident
  2. Sign up to win at https://www.reebok.com/us/90s_rerun
  3. Wait for an e-mail from Reebok – they’ll select six winners at random and let entrants know if they’ve won.

Adored by her millions of social media followers, Sanders will serve as the face of Reebok’s Women’s Classic campaign and collection with Lady Foot Locker.

Known widely for her bold and effortless merger of fitness and fashion, Sanders quickly gained international notoriety as a style icon – having walked countless catwalks around the world for top designers and striking poses for the most legendary fashion photographers. A self-proclaimed fitness maven, Sanders credits her success to hard work, both in her career and the in the gym. Sanders discovered early in her career that fitness was the key to balance and tranquility in an industry where the pressures of beauty could be overwhelming.

In the new Reebok Classic campaign, launching nationwide in key Lady Foot Locker stores, as well as on Reebok.com, Jasmine Sanders was photographed at the sun-dappled Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, which served as the perfect backdrop to this streetwear collection. Blending key performance and street sensibilities, the collection includes directional designs that cater to the modern fashionista. Standout styles include the coordinating red/white/blue Striped Crew and the long Striped Skirt, paired with the Aztec Garment and Gum sneaker in white with gumsole, as well as Iconic Crew Sweat and matching Fitness Leggings paired with the Classic Leather sneaker in white. The 26 piece collection is rounded out by additional key pieces including the cropped Rib Tank Top, various Tees, a Knit Track Short, and various styles of the Aztec sneaker in black, white, red and clue, along with Classic Leather sneakers in white, black and neutral colorways.

“I’ve always been a huge fan of Reebok and its unique take on street style and fitness, so when I was asked to become the latest member of the Reebok family, the answer was simple,” said Sanders. “I love how versatile this Reebok collection is and allows me to go from the street to the gym and back, which works so well for my busy schedule. This collection really shows women and young girls that you can be fit and fabulous – and that message is very important to me as I live it every day.”

“We’re very excited to have Jasmine Sanders join the Reebok Classic family because she has a unique sense of style that crosses over from fashion to fitness and beyond,” said Todd Krinsky, Global Vice President of Reebok Classic and Entertainment. “Not many people have the credibility to do this. We think that Jasmine is a bold voice for her generation and we’re very excited to share what’s in store for Reebok Classic and Jasmine in the future.”

The Jasmine Sanders campaign for Reebok and Lady Foot Locker launches nationwide in-store and online today. Please visit http://www.ladyfootlocker.com or http://www.reebok.com/us/jasmine_sanders for additional information.

Work, Work, Work: Rihanna Teams with Parsons and Donna Karan for Design of Merchandise Collection in Haiti

Rihanna has announced that she will work with The New School’s Parsons School of Design, one the world’s leading art and design schools, Donna Karan and her Urban Zen Foundation, and Haitian artisans to develop a merchandise line for the singer’s Clara Lionel Foundation in Haiti this summer.

Parsons design students will collaborate with local artisans at the Design, Organization, Training (D.O.T) Center, an artisan vocational training center in Port-au-Prince, Haiti. Co-founded by Karan, Parsons, and designer Paula Coles, the D.O.T Center is an incubator for Haiti’s artisan community, fostering innovation, providing resources and materials, and enabling artisans to scale their designs while preserving the wisdom and integrity of their unique culture.

The partnership — emerging from a relationship between Urban Zen Foundation and Clara Lionel Foundation, which have worked together on socially engaged projects in Haiti — embodies the collective mission of both organizations and Parsons to positively transform people’s lives.

“We are ecstatic that our students will have the opportunity to work with and develop a merchandise line for Rihanna’s Clara Lionel Foundation, that, like Parsons, shares a strong commitment to creating positive social change,” says Alison Mears, director of the Healthy Materials Lab at Parsons who played an integral role in launching D.O.T. “Through this partnership with Donna Karan and Urban Zen, students will live Parsons’ mission, taking a multidisciplinary collaborative approach and utilizing local sustainable practices and healthier materials to create products that benefit Haiti and the Clara Lionel Foundation.”

Students will travel to and work in Haiti through Parsons Design Fellowship, a competitive program launched by Karan’s Urban Zen in 2015. Now in its third year, the program sends three Parsons students to Haiti for six to eight weeks beginning in early June.

Rihanna, who will be honored at Parsons Benefit, will announce the winners of the fellowship along with Karan at the event on May 22 in New York City. Karan was honored at the Benefit, a fundraiser for scholarships for Parsons students, last year.

Since its founding in 2015, the D.O.T Center has developed a training plan for educating local artisans — elevating local production practices, and helping artisans to develop their design expertise and create new products for market, as well as offering business services to a new generation of artisans. Parsons, through its Healthy Materials Lab, has advocated for the use of sustainable and local materials at the D.O.T Center.
