Legend has it that an anonymous scholar once said, “don’t mess with success.” While that advice can be applied to different avenues of life, it also holds a surprising amount of weight in fashion, particularly ongoing, multi-season collaborations like Adidas’ work with Alexander Wang. What started in 2016 with a set of monochromatic basics sold through pop-up trucks around New York City has since grown into several drops that have included neon rave-like biking gear, tearaway track pants, velour soccer-inspired tops, and a lineup of heavily paneled sneakers. Tied together across seasons by the inverted Adidas Trefoil, reversed three stripes, and an obsessive use of satin, the collections only emphasize Wang’s ability to turn athletic pieces into everyday staples—even as athleisure remains a dirty word for many fashion followers. —Skylar Bergl
