the pieces to come — which are equal parts footwear and apparel

  • Revealed during Paris Fashion Week almost exactly a year ago, Grace Wales Bonner is soon to reprise her collaborative relationship with adidas france solde. Like her mainline collection, the pieces to come — which are equal parts footwear and apparel — bear a bright, floral sense of color and an inimitably strong attention to detail.Bathed in sportswear influence, the clothing strikes a balance between both labels’ identities. While the framework is unmistakably adidas, the dressings, details, and palette are uniquely of Wales Bonner DNA. Fabrics are dyed in vintage-esque violets and muted yellows, trims at times contrast in deep greens, and the Stripes themselves are often woven in a way deceptively hand-darned.

    Reintroduced to the market late last year, the adidas eqt homme pas cher has recently reemerged in a “Joker”-like scheme complete with hits of purple, black, and neon green across its ’90s silhouette. While the retro model has been renamed to “FYW 98” – likely as a nod to its inclusion in The Three Stripes’ Feet You Wear collection – it keeps faithful to its original construction, save for the the “Solution” script on the tongue. Complete with a chunky midsole and uniquely-grooved outsole, the ’98 model sports black nubuck mudguards contrasted by “Glory Purple” mesh, leather, and plastic overlays. Elsewhere on the shoe, an eye-grabbing “Solar Green” animates of-the-era adidas Performance branding, tread, and the playful FYW logo on the heel and insole.

    With the unwavering popularity of gaming, the former subculture has made it into the mainstream and other industries have been taking note. Nike has been at the forefront of crisscrossing footwear with gaming via a collaboration with League of Legends and the “Have A Good Game” pack. The Swoosh has even continued to apply video graphics-inspired details onto a handful of standalone releases, such as this 8-bit-informed nike air force 1 femme.

    Throughout its 31-year-history, the nike air max 90 pas cher has emerged in ensembles inspired by everything from bacon to bubbles. For its latest proposition, Tinker Hatfield’s design has indulged in a black and orange colorway informed by leather sports balls – football or rugby.At a glance, the forthcoming pair resembles a Halloween-ready option with its dark color scheme: patent leather, suede, mesh and TPU detailing across the upper boast all-black makeups. Closer inspection, however, reveals a brown and white graphic on the tongue label reminiscent of old school rugby balls or standard ones for American football."
