Back in Spring we got the first taste of the Herschel Supply Co. x New Balance collaboration that highlighted Herschel's superior craftsmanship and New Balance's sports footwear heritage. The custom paisley lining and tasteful leather accents that were recurrent throughout the small capsule collection were an instant hit and we flew through the NB 420 shoes, Heritage Plus backpacks and Novel Duffle bags in no time.
Following that initial release, Herschel Supply Co. and New Balance have come together once again for a second collaborative collection – this time created especially for the Fall 2013 season. Unveiled earlier this summer, the collection utilizes the 420 and H710 silhouettes – just like the spring collection – and offers the two shoes in monochromatic grey, burgundy and army colorways. All three come lined in Herschel’s signature paisley while ripstop nylon, textured suede and reflective tape construction further reflect the sensibilities of the bag specialists. Joining the shoes is the brand new Heritage NB Backpack – a design especially created for the collection and one that makes use of the Novel Duffel’s signature shoe pocket.
We’re looking at a late August release for this limited edition collaborative effort in the UK as a result of some scheduling delays. Much like the first Herschel x New Balance drop, we’re expecting stock levels to be tight and for these to fly out in no time. For more detailed information regarding this release, it’s worth keeping an eye on our FACEBOOK and TWITTER profiles for more updates closer the time of the release.
