In the next chapter of adidas Originals’ ongoing collaboration with Amsterdam-based designer Daniëlle Cathari, the brand introduces new sizing options with an evolved deconstructed silhouette and reworked signatures, emphasizing mature, tailored elements while maintaining the effortless style and sporty fabrics of Cathari’s previous collections.
Featuring different outfits matched in an unexpected way, Cathari’s Fall/Winter 2019 collection plays off a series of contrasts – hyper-feminine vs. masculine silhouettes, cozy vs. delicate fabrics, and high vs. low dressing – communicating the concept of “work from home dressing.” Working off of Fall/Winter 2019’s feminine and masculine contrast, Cathari’s collection offers updated pieces in her signature deconstructed approach, expanding her range of offerings with a reimagined release for both men and women.
With reworked classics like ribbed tank tops, melange grey sweatsuits, and tailored sets crafted with sporty adidas fabrics, all in a “washed” color palette, the adidas Originals Daniëlle Cathari Fall/Winter 2019 collection is a versatile take on Cathari’s innovative and design-intensive repurposing of iconic Originals three-stripe pieces. Utilizing details like a paint brush effect on the three stripes and draping elements on dresses, the new collection features a sophisticated take on traditionally cozy items, offering an elegant, “grown-up” version of streetwear.
Kendall Jenner once again fronts the new season’s campaign, continuing a relationship that began during Cathari’s SS17 debut collection for Originals and has continued to grow in the time since. This time joined by Daniëlle herself, the cast appears languid and quietly confident against a stripped-back set of 90’s-era office furniture, bringing Cathari’s modern workwear concepts into context.

About Daniëlle Cathari:
Daniëlle Cathari is an Amsterdam based designer. Cathari’s work plays upon the concept of ‘complementing contrasts’ explored through her designs and creative vision. Her work is founded from the attention to rere-purpose and deconstruct classic styles that are marking a new subversiveness for both women’s- and menswear.
Daniëlle Cathari was a student at the Amsterdam Fashion Institute and showed as a part of the VFiles runway show for the first time ever during New York Fashion Week in 2017. For her honors program at school, she designed a few looks consisting of deconstructed vintage adidas tracksuits which she sourced herself from vintage stores and has built upon this concept for her core collection.
