Sports Luxe fashion is back in a big way this season with the collaboration of high street giant Topshop and Adidas Originals for the second time.
The seven-piece collection sees a selection of iconic Adidas originals pieces reengineered by Topshop to create an exclusive capsule of essential staples that features the perfect fusion of street style with rich sport heritage.
“Our love of fashion and sportswear comes to life in this capsule collection. Sports style classics with bold graphic numbers are the superstar looks this season.” Kate Phelan – Creative Director, Topshop.
Signature items such as the classic superstar jacket have been given a luxe, feminine treatment, constructed in soft, cream perforated leather paneling to create a slim silhouette, whilst footwear pays homage to an Adidas originals classic, the superstar shoe, with two new updates including a clear sole and a metallic cracked leather shell-toe.
The simple monochromatic palette is punctuated with flashes of bold red; a colour scheme inspired by 80s hip-hop iconography. The original Adidas originals trefoil logo is the hero motif for the collection, with large scale placement on the oversized sweat and t-shirts. In celebration of sporting success, the pieces are trimmed with stopwatch timing details along with the iconic Adidas originals three stripes.
“Our capsule with Topshop is the perfect partnership, as it allows us to explore a contemporary fashion aesthetic while paying homage to our iconic sportswear roots.” Josefine Aberg – Design Director, Adidas Originals.
