ADIDAS ORIGINALS TEAMS UP WITH OPENING CEREMONY

Adidas Originals has collaborated with New York-based Opening Ceremony founders Carol Lim and Humberto Leon to create a premium capsule collection just in time for the London 2012 Summer Olympic Games. The result is a playful autumn/winter 2012 offering that draws on the prints, shapes and silhouettes of ’90s sportswear. The line is comprised of 70 garments and 20 footwear styles for both men and women, ranging from 75 to 630 Euro for apparel and from 140 to 235 Euro for shoes.

The collection combines elements of swim and cycling with a street attitude, producing a range of sporty separates, printed bathing suits and new takes on classic Adidas Originals footwear. Prints are essential to the line, seen scattered across bombers, bike shorts and halter-tops. The swim portion features a playful red-and-blue patchwork bandana pattern, while the cycling pieces come in one of two prints: a kaleidoscopic mini-floral or a hypnotic splatter-paint motif in ochre, green, blue or white. Footwear follows the collection’s 90’s motif of, featuring unisex jelly sandals and printed neoprene water-socks. Other highlights include Opening Ceremony’s reinterpretation of the classic Samba trainer, as well as a bold new BMX-style high-top sneaker with a discreetly printed sole.

The first Adidas Originals by Opening Ceremony capsule collection will be globally released to select fashion outlets as well as Adidas Originals and Opening Ceremony stores in July and August. During next month’s Berlin Fashion Week the Adidas Originals by Opening Ceremony spring/summer 2013 collection will be presented with an exclusive preview with designers Lim and Leon in attendance.
