Joining forces once again, German sportswear legends adidas and Japanese streetwear masters Neighborhood have worked together to breathe life into a selection of classic sportswear for AW14.
Combining NBHD’s signature aesthetic with adi’s sportswear heritage, this new collaborative collection deploys a variety of seasonal hues and a bespoke Native American inspired graphic print across a brand new range of apparel and some strong re-workings of classic footwear.
Running throughout the entire collection, the repeating Jacquard design plays directly into NBHD’s hands, playing on their obsession with vintage Americana, a fascination with a version of American history viewed through a definitively Japanese lens.
Deploying the print across a variety of adi silhouettes and a range of their own designs, they have resurrected a variety of archive adidas sports and leisurewear and created two incredibly impressive new cold weather outerwear designs.
As ever the collection is topped off with some inspired reworkings of classic adidas footwear designs, with new versions of the Country, Superstar and two new silhouettes inspired by vintage American work boots.
Making their mark, Shelltoe takes on the collections jacquard print, with a beaded three stripe, the BW Moc is draped is a suede fringe and the BW Hi is stamped with brogue inspired toe cap detailing.
