Pharrel Williams & Pusha-T Discuss Creativity at adidas Originals Supershell Event

On Saturday August 8, Pharrell Williams hosted an adidas Originals Supershell event in Los Angeles honoring Pusha-T and exploring the concept of what it means to be a Superstar. Williams invited an audience of young artists and students from across the Los Angeles area to come together for a celebration of creativity and individuality. Bringing the Fall/Winter Superstar campaign to life, the message of what it means to be a Superstar - "creating for yourself" was central to the evening.

Williams encouraged these young creators to reimagine the iconic Shell- Toe detail from an adidas Originals Superstar, using it is as a canvas for artistic expression, igniting their imaginations to create for an audience of one.

The evening was capped off by a surprise performance by Pusha-T, whom Williams nominated to be one of his Original Superstars, an icon in his field of hip hop music.

Fall/Winter Superstar Campaign
After challenging the notion of what a Superstar is in SS15, adidas Originals continues to explore the concept in Fall-Winter with a campaign that defines the true meaning of what it means to be a Superstar.
The campaign launched last week through a series of black and white videos which featured Pharrell Williams and his five handpicked influencers: Pusha T, Grigoriy Dobrygin, Smithe, VJ Mian and Yoon -- individuals all united in their commitment to creating for an audience of one—the true calling card of a Superstar. The message of the campaign was proclaimed through these six creative voices.

Embodying the notion of Superstars setting their own standards, the group of creatives will continue to bring the concept to life and inspire others to define who their own Original Superstars are over the course of the campaign.
