Japanese label Neighborhood and adidas Originals continue their prolific relationship with a new range of sportswear for Spring/Summer 2015. And unlike the Kanye West collaboration, this release features a hefty dose of branding commonly associated with adidas’ aesthetic.
The selection of performance pieces—like the NH Mountain Parka, windbreaker jackets, zip hoodies, and graphic tees—blend nicely with the array of casualwear items like cardigans, oxford shirts, blazers, and cropped trousers. However, the use of logo placement and three-stripe accents keep the line from becoming too disjointed and busy. There’s a good amount of diversity, but not too much that it looks unfocused. It’s just a clean, straight-forward collection with co-branding details and a navy paisley print scattered throughout.
In addition to the apparel, the line also delivers a range of hats and footwear. The latter selection features new iterations of the ZX 500 OG, the Tournament, the Adilette, and the Campus 80s Mid. But the standout option is definitely the reinterpreted Boston Super OG, a murdered-out leather version of the vintage model that is accented by a triangle pattern on the outsole with logo placement on the tongue.
Take a look at the adidas Originals x Neighborhood collection below. The line will hit select retailers on Feb. 21.
