GDLP Gel-Lyte III - Tropicalia
One of the most innovative moments in Brazil’s cultural history, the Tropicália movement, is celebrated in the ASICS x Guadalupe collaboration, released worldwide, a first for Guadalupe, the retailer responsible for promoting sneaker culture in the country.
The new GEL-LYTE™ III TROPICÁLIA recalls the movement that conquered the world and influences, to this day, countless national and international artists. Designed by Pedro Andrade, bringing psychedelic references, materials and graphics that translate the spirit of the time and some icons of the movement. The colourway was inspired by the tones of the cover of the album Acabou Chorare, by Novos Baianos, one of the great masterpieces of the time.
Tropicalismo, the name given to the movement, was also guided by the idea of absorbing what is good in foreign cultures and reinventing these elements within an authentic Brazilian language, a movement also carried out by Guadalupe in favour of sneakerhead culture in the country. The new GEL-LYTE™ III TROPICÁLIA shows these ruptures in a current and more urban interpretation of the movement, which is a fundamental part of the current Brazilian artistic narrative.
