adidas Originals and Mary Katrantzou reveal first collection

Sports brand adidas has revealed images of its collaboration with fashion designer Mary Katrantzou for AW14. The collaboration sees the launch of adidas Originals by Mary Katrantzou, offering a collection of apparel and footwear featuring the designer's designs. Track shoes worn by medal winners from the 1970s and 80s act as the starting point for a series of prints that re-contextualise the history of adidas iconography, defined by the outsoles, laces, and pop icons of the adidas running shoe. The fashion line places a strong emphasis on the female form, with taut and technical silhouettes that are streamlined close to the body; while a coat dress, A-line mini dress, track jacket, fitted T-shirt and leggings also feature. Shades of orange and pink sit alongside aquatic green and cobalt, contrasted with shades of graphite grey and marble. Footwear combines technology and technical design where The Equipment Racer style features deconstructed mesh and a textile upper with a clear glitter outsole covered with a laced up floral pattern. adidas Originals by Mary Katrantzou will be in-stores on 15 November.
