(Herzogenaurach – July 2017) adidas Originals and Japanese menswear label White Mountaineering reconvene for FW17, bringing Yosuke Aizawa’s inimitable aesthetic to a comprehensive range of adidas Originals footwear and apparel. True to White Mountaineering’s philosophy of creating elevated technical product with an unparalleled sartorial touch, the latest collection presents a range of cold weather designs in a stripped-back seasonal color palette, complemented by a footwear range of different silhouettes, including the NMD_R2, NMD Trail and Stan Smith BOOST.
For the latest collection, Yosuke Aizawa’s signature aesthetic returns across a number silhouettes including cargo pants, jersey and headwear pieces. Premium outerwear offerings include a Hooded Windbreaker, and a Firebird track top reinterpreted with a technical design language, bringing Aizawa’s strong utilitarian edge to fore. Each design is distinguished by White Mountaineering’s signature paneled constructions and atypical 3-stripes placements, offered in an understated palette of black, white and olive drabs.
Accompanying footwear to the collection continues the military theme with both classic and contemporary 3-stripes silhouettes. Returning from SS17, the NMD Trail steps out in a duo of new colorways with reflective print details and a saw-tooth outsole for better grip. Likewise, the NMD_R2 returns with essential paneled construction and signature co-branded 3-stripes details. 3 new iterations of the Stan Smith Comfort receive premium material updates and subtle stylistic changes atop a BOOST tooling.
Carrying Yosuke Aizawa’s unique eye for functional design with aesthetic appeal across 3-stripes apparel and footwear, the collaboration encapsulates the commitment of both labels to creating striking street-ready designs with an uncompromised performance edge.
