Singapore’s Limited Edt and Mark Ong – AKA SBTG – team up once again, this time for a capsule collection with New Balance dubbed the “Urban Islander”- an ode to contemporary life in Singapore. The collection features a 327 sneaker and 900 sandal as well as clothing and accessories.
The 327 sneaker features military green and black uppers which hold a myriad of design details. The lateral side of the 327 is presented in a uniform manner, with olive hairy suede paired with black nylon and a tonal screen-printed “N” logo. The medial side flips the uniformity completely and becomes a mismatched canvas for SBTG’s leopard-camouflage and artwork.
Bringing the tropical island element is the 900 sandals, which features colour and design inspiration that plays off the 327. The 900 sandals come with an adjustable hook and loop closure for easy wear and Boa® Fit System for a snug, secure and precision fit.
The New Balance Urban Islander Collection by SBTG and Limited Edt includes the 327 sneakers (S$189), 900 sandals with socks (S$159), a shirt in two colourways (S$89), a tote bag (S$79), and a towel in three colourways (S$39). Available exclusively at Limited Edt CHAMBER, urbanislander.limitededt.com and sbtgsurplus.com from October 15th 2020.
