Nigo’s collection with adidas Originals was one of the most highly anticipated collaborations of last year, and when the first selection dropped last fall it didn’t disappoint. Now, we’re getting a look at the new range for Spring/Summer 2015, which presents a broad collection of apparel and footwear styles inspired by the streets of New York City.
Similar to the lookbook for the fall release, this season's lookbook was shot on location in New York by Ari Marcopoulos, a contemporary photographer who started his career assisting Andy Warhol and is known for his portraits of such icons as Jean-Michel Basquiat and Harold Hunter, to name a few. Once again, the photos feature Harlem-based hip-hop group Ratking modeling various looks from the collection.
The collection offers re-interpreted pieces of apparel and footwear from the adidas archives, featuring various classic pieces that have been given Nigo’s signature spin. Satin snap jackets, hoodies, and graphic prints feature the iconic Trefoil along with the bear graphic that is the collection’s signature. The footwear offerings include three different styles of the Campus 80s.
Check out the official lookbook below and watch for the collection to begin hitting select adidas Originals retailers starting on Feb. 1.
