This season, high street giant TOPSHOP teams up with the brand with the 3-stripes,
ADIDAS ORIGINALS for a second season.
The seven-piece collection sees a selection of iconic ADIDAS ORIGINALS pieces re engineered by TOPSHOP to create an exclusive capsule of essential staples; the perfect fusion of street style with rich sport heritage. The TOPSHOP design team has reworked a number of classics including the SUPERSTAR jacket and shoes, the oversize logo tee, as well as the side stripe pants and shorts, in order to reflect the distinctive TOPSHOP design aesthetic.
The classic SUPERSTAR jacket is given a luxe, feminine treatment, constructed in perforated leather paneling to create a slim silhouette for the TOPSHOP girl. Footwear pays homage to the classic 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-shirt and, in celebration of sporting success, pieces are trimmed with stopwatch timing details along with the iconic ADIDAS ORIGINALS three stripes.
“Our love of fashion and sportswear comes to life in this capsule collection. Sportstyle classics with bold graphic numbers are the superstar looks this season.”
Kate Phelan – Creative Director, TOPSHOP
“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
The TOPSHOP x Adidas Originals Collection will be available at all TOPSHOP stores and TOPSHOP Menlyn Edgars store from 30 April 2015.
