adidas Originals has worked with Alexander Wang for the sixth time, presenting the Fall WInter 2019/20 as a final season of the collaboration. Inspired by the “Club Leisure” aesthetic, the collection merges underground tech cues with inspiration from the world of disco, presenting a provocatively futuristic collection.
Standing proud as one of the industry’s most prominent disruptors, Wang has always hacked fashion in one way or another. Nowhere is this more prevalent than in his playful subversion of the adidas Originals brand DNA. From flipping the iconic trefoil upside down to unapologetically experimenting with silhouettes from different sports, Wang has established aesthetic hacking as his point of view since the very beginning of the collaborative partnership. Season 6 brings this perspective full circle, placing a Hackathon at its core. – from the brands
Drawing firmly on streetwear codes while still maintaining Wang’s signature vision of empowered femininity, the collection is highlighted by a number of striking garments, accessories, and footwear.
The collection includes an instant classics, the “AW Tee” and “AW Pant” that combine shiny spandex and standout graphic, the retro cycling inspired “Silver Bra” and “Silver Short”. Season 6 sees the reinvention of the “AW Puff Trainer”, while for accessories, the “AW Duffl” and “2T Duffl” duffel bags represent the perfect accompaniment to the designer’s hacker uniform.
To celebrate the launch of the collection, two brands organised disruptively innovative Hackathon event in New York City on December 10th.
The collection drops December 14th at select retailers, adidas Originals and Alexander Wang flagship locations, and both brands’ e-commerce sites.
