Tennis courts that is…Yigal Azrouël has partnered with K-Swiss to create a capsule collection
of men’s sneakers for spring, according to Fashion Week Daily. The styles will debut at Azrouël’s fashion show September 5 at Peter White Studios in Chelsea.
The collaboration is the first of it’s type for each company. "The K-Swiss aesthetic perfectly matches my
own menswear sensibility," said Azrouël, who launched his eponymous
women’s collection in 1998 and added men’s in February. "The K-Swiss
legacy is one of elegance and simplicity, and we pay homage to those
ideas with our collaboration."

In addition
to the runway styles, Azrouël will collaborate with product designer
Dror Benshetrit to create an installation in his Meatpacking District
boutique for Fashion Week, inspired by the Los Angeles-based firm’s
Swiss tradition. The installation will also coincide with the 2007 U.S.
