Hooray! Topshop is pairing up with Adidas Originals for a second collaboration – and it’s ah-mazing.
The high street brand certainly knows what it’s doing when it comes to hot hook ups; it has collaborated with fashion superstars Kate Moss, Christopher Kane and Ashish, to name but a few. And this new offering is no less covetable than the rest- in fact, it’s making us want to ditch our spring dresses for a healthy dose of sportswear, pronto.
This time, the collaboration is in fact a seven piece capsule collection, featuring a selection of iconic Adidas Originals pieces re-engineered by Topshop to create essential sporty separates.
Trademark Adidas styles taken from the Originals archives, including the superstar jacket and oversized logo tee have been reworked with a dose of Topshop magic, to reflect the high street giant’s distinctive style.
The superstar trainer gets two new updates, too, with a clear sole and a metallic cracked leather shell-toe – our personal fave. Meanwhile those superstar jackes come in soft, cream leather and perforated paneling.
Inspired by 80’s hip-hop iconography, the collection’s simple monochromatic colour palette gets a bold update with flashes of bright red. The infamous three stripes and trefoil logo both feature throughout adorning track pants, shorts and a statement sweat, earning plenty of retro style points.
Josefine Aberg, Design Director at ADIDAS ORIGINALS told us “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.”. And, Kate Phelan, Creative Director for Topshop summed up exactly why we want to buy it all, saying “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.”
We couldn’t agree more, ladies!
The coveted collection launches globally today and will be available nationwide in Topshop & Adidas Originals stores and online at Topshop.com and Adidas.com/orginals.
