(Herzogenaurach, February 2018) – For Spring/Summer 2018, adidas Originals and Pharrell Williams take a trip to northern India to honor the ancient spiritual Holi Festival, a springtime celebration of joy, equality, and humanity. Here, festival attendees paint their bodies head-to-toe and fling brightly hued powders in the air, hoping for long-lasting color in their everyday lives. Imagined as a crisp white uniform to be worn for Holi, the Blank Canvas collection serves up four pieces of apparel and footwear that underscore a message of peace and equality. The range highlights the playful spirit and soulfulness of the adidas Originals by Pharrell Williams collaboration, now in its fourth year. It also represents a continuation of the Hu journey, reflecting Pharrell’s founding vision of energy, color, and spirituality as a unifying force between people.

The sleek Hu Blank Canvas Knitted TT is an engineered track top featuring unique material interest in various panels and “patch”-style embroidery declaring the phrase “HU MAN BEING.” For FTW, the iconic Hu NMD goes all-white to create the Hu NMD Blank Canvas, while the simple and versatile Tennis Hu PK Blank Canvas presents a pure take on the everyday trainer. Completing the footwear offering, the classic Stan
 
Smith Blank Canvas gets cleaned up—here in white Primeknit with a coordinated leather lining. 
 
These minimalist pieces will serve as a Blank Canvas at the wild and transcendent Holi Festival. Just add color.
