Masafumi Watanabe’s revered label Bedwin and the Heartbreakers returns to collaborate with adidas Originals for FW16 on a capsule collection of innovative footwear and apparel.
Following on from a successful array of collaborations with the Japanese casualwear brand that explored a variety of adidas archive classics, this time the collaborative project turns its attentions to adidas’ contemporary output, applying Bedwin’s distinctive sartorial touch to a capsule of modern 3-stripes silhouettes. In this collection, two pared-back iterations of adidas Originals’ ultra-successful NMD silhouette apply the same understated aesthetic to a truly progressive footwear model in silver and black, utilizing the same stripe motif across a sockfit upper with a tonal heel-unit, black 3-stripes marks and white contrast details including a jointbranded tongue tag. Departing somewhat from the heritage-inspired offerings of previous Bedwin and adidas Originals collections, this latest collaboration cements the relationship between the two brands, championing Bedwin’s keen eye for universal style elements whilst demonstrating the versatility and innovation of adidas Originals’ latest product.
The adidas Originals by Bedwin and the Heartbreakers will be launching on November 26th at CROSSOVER Mid Valley store only.
