Continuing to foster their ZX collaborations, Packer and Consortium team up to take on the Torsion ZX model.
Atop the Torsion silhouette, the 'Mega Violet' speaks more on what could become of our environment at the hands of our own negligence. Being locked in bags marked 'BIOHAZARD,' the pair evokes pollution and corruption through a palette of darkened pinks, shriveled greys, and seemingly radioactive purple bases, with fabrications following along through suede overlays brushed for a distressed effect and mesh bearing full-on aggression.
Pigskin leathers are by and large the most ordinary, though they add a luxe accompaniment to the rest of the overall kit; at the bottoms translucent panels attach, sitting among some of the more subtle embellishments like the cobranded tongue loops, graphic insoles, and lace dubraes.
