OVERKILL x PONY „Lady Liberty“ Runner

Not too long ago, in the year 2012 to be exact and a year after the beginning of a cooperation between PONY and OVERKILL, an exciting quest began to find a long lost treasure.

It was a hunt for a vintage Runner, a performer from way back when, a forgotten sneaker lost in time. OVERKILL
re-discovered this missing silhouette on a ”Whats on my feet today” post and presented it to the shoe manufacturer from New York with the knowledge that such running silhouette’s are very much loved all over the european scene. This discovery and the accompanied WOMFT posting created great interest and excitement at PONY. The New Yorkers were now determined to help track down the origins of the runner and bring it back to life.

Now 2013, an appeal was launched on Instagram to assist in unraveling the mystery surrounding the missing Runner. An open call for help to obtain more information and the whereabouts of a highly sought after treasure from ancient times. But even after delving deep into the PONY archives, there was still very little information to be found.

After 9 months of searching and as fate would have it, it was OVERKILL, in Berlin, that finally brought an end to this quest. As a reward, the first collaboration for the second launch of this re-discovered runner was gladly awarded to OVERKILL.

A new milestone was set and an original PONY silhouette was re-born!

With both OVERKILL & PONY deeply rooted in the heritage of their own cities, Berlin and New York, this legend was brought back to life. Proudly presented as the ”Lady Liberty“, a strictly limited collaboration dropping on the 21.03.2015 just in time for beginning of spring.

If you look closely, you will find every inch of the Runner is dedicated to the heritage of PONY (Product of New York), and a clear homage to the memorial for peace, “Lady Liberty“. The overriding colours of oxidised copper mint and grey cement provide the colour scheme of the shoe, reminiscent to the tones of the Statue of Liberty.

From this point onward, we’ll let you embark on your own bounty hunt adventure ….

OVERKILL x Alpha Industries MA-1 „VAGABUND“ – Release: 28.02.2015 – 16:00h – online from 20:00H

vagbund_event_insta_update

We are proud to present our next collaboration:

This time we teamed with iconic military supplier ALPHA INDUSTRIES on a military inspired reversible MA-1 jacket just in time for the spring /summer season.
Named the „VAGABUND“, this exclusive Air Force style collaboration jacket, based on the original issued in 1959, takes inspiration from some of Berlin ́s many sub-cultures such as the now famous Graffiti & Techno scenes that have been part of the cities unique identity for a number of years. Beginning with the mid 90ies, when OVERKILL was founded, the Jacket features a reversible inner lining baring a scrapbook style collage of articles, photographs and impressions from 1992 till today. Constructed from ALPHA flight nylon in the orthodox military colorway sage-green with custom embroidery on removable patches and co-branded logo stitchings on the flag labels, zipper pullers, a hidden OVERKILL patch on the inner lining and backside, a nostalgic pencil/cigarette ‚utility‘ pocket and front tab (where the pilot would clip his oxygen mask when not in use), and finally a signal strap with a play on the statement „Remove before Flight“ instead reading „Remove before Night“.

The OVERKILL x Alpha Industries MA-1 „VAGABUND“ Jacket is a journey through time objectifying Berlin subculture from the early 90s through to the present day. With a clear focus on the graffiti and techno scenes, represented using a collage of various newspaper articles portraying important local happenings, underlining the alternative and cultural development path of Berlin counterculture. Meaningful photographs from groundbreaking photographer and symbol of Berlin nightlife, Sven Marquardt as well as a verbalized and visual form of expressing the appeal and impact of “Wasted German Youth“, left behind for the Berlin Techno scene by performance artist and designer Paul Snowden. Blunt, bold, loud and an authentic impression of Berlin life and culture.

OVERKILL originating through the love of graffiti and street art, influenced by the movement of subculture and till this day still heavily inspired by Berlin, in a harmonic cooperation with ALPHA INDUSTRIES, a company who themselves have a deep historical background and roots.

The OVERKILL x Alpha Industries MA-1 “VAGABUND„ available February 28th, in store first from 4PM (online from 8PM), linked to a special event. A very limited and individual customized patch will be included for the first lucky customers.
