The Alexander Wang x adidas Originals collaboration continues with a second, 14-piece collection that subverts boundaries between fashion and streetwear. Flipping branding conventions, Wang rotates the adidas Originals’ trefoil and “originals” logos upside down, becoming newly and defyingly symbolic.
The collection is filled with sportswear pieces such as track suits, crop tops, and shorts as well as two new sneakers.
The iconic trefoil logo has been inverted across a selection of unisex apparel including tracksuits, shorts and crop tops. As can be seen below and in the above NYC-shot lookbook by Juergen Teller, colorways are available in black, blue and burgundy.
Both pairs of the Alexander Wang x adidas Boost footwear make use of sock-like upper constructions; the white version, called the AW Run Clean, goes clean with a simple upside-down trefoil logo at the heel while the black pair, called the AW Run, adds in an intricate lacing structure that tightens at the heel.
The Alexander Wang x adidas Originals Collection will release on Wednesday, March 1st at select retailers around the globe. An online release on adidas.com and the Alexander Wang web-store on March 4th.
