adidas Originals by Nigo just unveiled the latest lookbook for their collaborative collection. The lookbook, shot by iconic photographer Ari Marcopoulos, stays in line with the Nigo's streetwear roots by featuring underground hip-hop group Ratking.
Nigo chose Ratking partially because of the parallels between them and other three-man rap crews that helped popularize adidas in the '90s. "It’s an interesting parallel with Run-DMC and the Beastie Boys," Nigo told Style.com, "But it’s more the quality of them as a group that’s interesting to me... They’re genuine underground."
The lookbook highlights the collection's masterful mix of sportswear and streetwear in a grimy, underground setting. The bold, playful pieces, like tracksuits that call back to Nigo's work with BAPE by lining the sides and sleeves with the designer's bear mascot, really pops in the gritty rooms.
