Leading up to the launch of his exclusive collection with adidas Originals, NIGO shares details on how Japanese fashion has influenced the adidas Originals by NIGO line. While known in the past for his signature all-over print graphics, NIGO speaks on how his interest in “basic fashion” – which is not concerned with seasons or eras – helped shape a collection that could be worn by a wide range of people, from children to adults. Further elaborating on his design approach, NIGO tips his hat to the ’80s Tokyo era, in which mixing of many different fashion looks and concepts took place, to support his design concept to utilize silhouettes and inspiration from the past while adding personal details and modernizing the fit of each piece.
The adidas Originals by NIGO collection is set for a worldwide release on October 24 at select adidas Originals stockists.
Following the official unveiling of Pharrell’s “Solid Pack” capsule, adidas Originals takes to the web to present its latest collaboration with another familiar polymath, NIGO. Having first heard of their partnership back in February, this is the first time we’re seeing any product from the two.
Consisting of retro footwear and apparel, from jeans to varsity jackets, the collection incorporates the iconic Trefoil logo throughout as well as a crowned, menacing bear. In terms of footwear, the collection sees the HUMAN MADE and A Bathing Ape founder customizing silhouettes like the Marathon TR Mid, Rivalry Hi, Superstar 80s, and Shooting Star, offering up clean tonal colorways and classic combinations of black and white alongside bolder hues like neon green, sky blue, metallic silver, and cherry red.
