For the Alexander Wang x adidas Originals Season 3 Drop 3 collection, the designer has found inspiration in the garments that slip between the cracks during the sample stage. Production errors, imperfections, and unfinished details are the tools that Wang has employed to reimagine some of adidas most iconic signature designs.
The collection is made up of 16-pieces, including crop tops, dresses, skirts, windbreakers, track pants, shorts and shirts — boast one-of-a-kind, perma-wrinkled details, inspired by the idea of forgotten, “forever-folded” inventory stored in boxes. For footwear, Wang designed the AW Turnout Trainer, a bold, chunky sneaker with multi-sport tooling and two different colorways. The collection which boasts a color palette of red, black and blue, will be available on June 23 at select retailers worldwide and online.
Wang has partnered with photographer Brianna Capozzi again for the collaboration’s new campaign, capturing the rebellious nature of Wang’s designs. The third season has brought the designer’s go-to crew of models from Palm Springs to a factory-based office, and now, an industrial laundromat, where Lexi Boling and Cat McNeil pose and play dress-up on ironing boards, countertops and among piles and racks of laundry.
