Introducing the New Balance x Casablanca 327
First seen at Paris Fashion Week, New Balance’s 327 has received an injection of colour
New Balance has teamed up with luxury men’s fashion house Casablanca to rework the former’s brand new silhouette, the 327.
Casablanca brings its luxury-meets-sport design philosophy to the model, which was inspired by New Balance’s archive of 70s runners.
Pulling inspiration from Casablanca founder and creative director, Charaf Tajer’s rich dual French and Moroccan heritage, the collection’s vibrant white and orange and green pops evoke the nostalgic hues of Moroccan oranges and crisp tennis uniforms.
At once refined and relaxed, the Casablanca x New Balance 327 is the perfect balance of luxury and sport heritage.

A streamlined and stripped-back model that is a reimagining of heritage product, with a modern twist. The Casablanca x New Balance iteration offers a white 70s Italian sports automobile-inspired perforated leather upper for a sporty, yet luxurious design with suede vamp fangs and an enlarged leather ‘N’ logo done in classic Casablanca colorways. The sculpted sole unit and heel wrap offer a contemporary design element.
Both colourways are dropping on April 18th and will be available from Casablanca online for £140 and other stockists worldwide.
