While no pictures have been released, this week it was confirmed that famed athletic shoe company Adidas is teaming with Opening Cermony for a capsule collection of reinterpreted Adidas Originals. The 100 piece collection will honor this summer’s Olympic games, an event that Opening Cermony holds true to their heart.
“The idea of Opening Ceremony re-creating Adidas Originals products with their creative sensibility in mind was something that intrigued us,” the label’s global creative director, Dirk Schönberger, told WWD. “Once we delved deeper, we discovered Opening Ceremony’s close ties to the idea of the Olympics and with London coming up this year, it was just the perfect fit.”
In learning more about this collaboration it was brought to our attention, by The Coveted K, that the collection will not only include footwear but clothing as well. Footwear will retail between $140 and $235, while the clothing will range from $100 to $630. One vote yes for the footwear but one huge thumbs down on the price of the clothing… that is until we actually see the collection with our own eyes…
