adidas Originals and Wales Bonner continue their collaborative partnership with the Fall Winter 2023 collection.
Staying true to the designer’s ongoing exploration of athletic codes, the apparel offering reimagines adidas’ sporting legacy through a selection of refined and elegant archival looks. Off-pitch styles include an elevated knit set in mahogany brown alongside football shorts in a sand colored nylon with the iconic Three Stripes contrast.
Swapping creative sources of inspiration from the 70s to the 90s, key pieces are rendered in a lightweight nylon fabrication, including a pale sky tracksuit with reflective piping and a black nylon top with a contrasting vivid green knit collar. All pieces are available in unisex sizing.
Similarly, the footwear selection continues to evolve Wales Bonner’s now signature take on the adidas Originals Samba silhouette. A duo of looks incorporate luxurious faux pony-hair uppers and gum soles – one in leopard print, the other in a light tan colourway – while another set features suede overlays and signature contrast stitching.
Marking a departure from previous seasons, the campaign visuals swap evocative landscapes for a more refined, studio setting. Decidedly new, yet still grounded in the adidas Originals by Wales Bonner lexicon, the visuals capture a mix of models and street cast figures, as well as skateboarder Na-Kel Smith, against minimal backdrops – highlighting the simplicity of the silhouettes and the evocative complexity of the characters themselves. Accompanying the campaign images are a set of short interviews and moving vignettes, with the cast answering interview questions hosted by playwright, actor, and philanthropist, Jeremy O. Harris.
