ADIDAS ORIGINALS x OPENING CERMONY LOOKBOOK 2012
The Olympic Games in London is closer than ever now, 4 years of waiting (not that I really waitied, since I am not into sports, and I see there is also the EM xD). Now you have all the reason to stay at home…to watch the Olympic Games….and maybe get motivated to exercise more! And to exercise more, you feel like investing in really nice sports cloths! right right right?! Good. Because Adidas Orginial Have some news for ya all. For fashionable sports cloths/streetwear, they’ve collaborated with Opening Cermony for the autumn/winter collection 2012. We can see some Asia blood here, the Chinese model Xiao Wen Ju features in the campaign togehter with Camille Rowe, Jordan Torres, and Shane Gibson .
The inspiration on the prints, shapes and silouettes comes from the 90s sportwear. The collection combines sartorial elements of swim and cycling with a street attitude, most of the collection is unisex- even the shoes.
Personally I liked the collaboration with Stella McCartney and Jamie Scott better. You gotto Love the Adidas Sneakers with the Wings! The fact that they didn’t sell it here in Sweden made them all the more desirable.
But this is only the sneakpeak, I am sure there is more to come!
I am not really a fan of the way they did Xiao Wen Ju’s Make-up.Especially the pink eye shadow around the whole eyes thing. But I guess it is part of the concept that Opening Cermony wanted to create. They wanted to reinterpret iconic siluhouettes of the sports and lifestyle brand and create a premium capsule collection.
