Following on the success of the global release of New Balance x Casablanca 327; the brands’ first collaboration from April 2020, the partnership continues to progress in the form of the highly anticipated XC-72 silhouette.
First seen during Casablanca’s AW21 film “Grand Prix”, the brand gave a preview and set the stage for the radical new design direction of the XC-72. The two colourways are inspired by world class luxury car design that resembles the rows of exotic cars that line Monaco’s winding roads.
Casablanca’s aesthetic is a fusion between lux and leisurewear, a perfect equilibrium of comfort and elegance. The brand re-interprets timeless environments of a luxurious heritage hotel suite or a crisp glass of champagne at a private country club terrace sunset. The award-winning men’s brand offers the rich dual heritage of their French Moroccan founder, Charaf Tajer.
“From when we first started working on the collaboration, we dubbed it the “sports car for your feet” as it evokes that feeling of when you first saw a luxury car as a child, you knew it was a car… but it was different to any car you’d seen before, it’s a feeling, a sense of wonder, designed to perform, designed to be special.”- Charaf Tajer & Steve Grimes, Casablanca’s Creative Director & Art Director
The XC-72 silhouette arrives with a sleek body shape and sits on top of a unique split sole unit that creates a new revelation for New Balance design. The model features three separate outsole tread patterns, inspired by heritage New Balance models, that come together to create a progressively new aesthetic inspired by the past.
The new release arrives in two distinct colourways: the orange & green combined with tonal white and grey accents is a direct reference and homage to the brands already iconic initial sneaker launch. The alternate colourway sees a bold combination of red and yellow contrasted against white and black accents, the colours further inspire connection to luxury sports cars with the black outsole unit refering to racing tires.
The New Balance x Casablanca XC-72 will release via online raffle on Saturday August 28th.
