Adidas Originals X Alexander Wang Goes Into Round 5
What a feeling.
Finally adidas Originals by alexanderwang returns for Season 5 with a new collection. Inspired by 80s Sportswear and Dance, Wang proposes clubbing as the ultimate form of exercise — and the collection as the perfect gear, mixing form and function.
In footwear, the AW Futureshell—debuted on the alexanderwang Spring/Summer 2019 runway—merges ’00s-era basketball materials with ’90s-style multisport tooling. This style is defined by its distinct, one-piece molded patent leather uppers. The AW Adilette Lycra redefines an adidas icon with herringbone foxing and a thick Lycra bandage.
The corresponding campaign goes inside a dance studio where world-renowned choreographer Tanisha Scott—known for her work with today’s greatest pop icons—leads her troupe through a series of warmups and cool-downs. Captured by Johnny Dufort and styled by Haley Wollens, dancers Noemi Janumala, Dakota Moore, Avi McClish, and Olivia Burgess bring to life the bold attitude and easy sensuality of the collection—with a dash of classic Wang wit and cheek.
Keep your eyes open and fingertips ready to shop the collection on May 25 online and at selected retailers.
