WANG x adidas… Say what?!

September 12, 2016

So if you haven’t been totally consumed by New York Fashion Week via social media just  yet and you don’t know about Alaxander Wang’s latest collaboration you need to.

Wang will be joining the likes of Stella McCartney, Raf Simons, Rick Owens, Yohji Yamamoto, and Kanye West with a special collection with the three stripes brand: adidas.

The collection consists of unisex pieces that range between $80-$200 and consists of 84 pieces. The collection launched yesterday in NY at various pop up locations.

Not in New York? No stress! Next spring the complete adidas Originals by Alexander Wang collection will be sold at adidas Originals and Alexander Wang stores, online stores and select retailers.

I’ve got my eyes on all things velvet… sigh.

adidas Originals x HYKE

Adidas-+-HYKE-_shot-05_1628

Japanese womenswear label, HYKE, have once again teamed up with adidas Originals and designed a collection that makes my heart pound. It’s no secret that I’m obsessed with simple and clean aesthetics and that’s exactly what the new adidas Originals by HYKE SS16 collection is all about.

Myself and Aqeelah Harron Ally (Fashion Breed) teamed up with adidas Originals to shoot a localised version of the new HYKE SS16 lookbook with Justin Polkey.

 The collection focused on a colour palette of navy and white all while keeping in line a clean and collected range with authentic sportswear elements. Fashionable minimalism.

Favourite piece of the collection? The ultra white high top Stan Smiths! As far as shoes are concerned there’s nothing that gets me more excited then a pair of fresh white sneakers. (I currently own 11 pairs!) I’ve officially labeled this sneaker as the must have shoe for 2016. Also the socks insert emoji with heart eyes – #JustSaying.

The adidas Originals by HYKE SS16 is available at AREA3 in Braamfontein, Johannesburg, and adidas.co.za.

AKJP

Today we celebrating local design duo Keith Henning and Jody Paulsen, also know as AKJP. Apart from designing their own clothing line, Keith Henning and Jody Paulsen also own the AKJP Collective. A concept store in Cape Town brought to you to showcase local SA design at its best.

The duo was one of three local South African designers to be selected as one of the finalists in the Who Is On Next? Dubai scouting project launched by Vogue Italia and dedicating to discovering design talent from the Middle East, Asia and Africa.

I recently attended AKJP’s AW’16 fashion show and opted to wear something from the designers themselves. A shirt dress (which I actually think is a longer length tee from the guys section) from one of their previous collections. I wanted an overall athleisure look so teamed the tee with the new “it” sneaker from adidas Originals, the NMD’s, and knotted hair instead of boxer braids. My final touch was my dark lip, Plum and Base, courtesy of Catrice.

With the duo making waves in the design industry both locally and abroad I think we can expect some extraordinary things from Keith Henning and Jody Paulsen.

Do you ever try on a pair of shoes and immediately you feel like you walking on clouds? And every step you take feels like you almost floating? Well that’s exactly what these babies from adidas made me feel like. Floating… clouds… heaven for my feet.

adidas have just launched their new line of trainers  – the Tubular X series – “a vision of the future created from abstractive, collective memories of adidas archives”.

Moulded soles, neutral colour-ways and a back to the future kinda feeling. A pair of trainers that can match pretty much anything in your wardrobe and let’s not forget that it comes in a knitted version too… I mean what’s not to love.
