adidas Originals once again collaborates with Tokyo’s NEIGHBORHOOD to bring a fresh take on classic sportswear for Fall/Winter ’14. This latest collection, which features both footwear and apparel, pays homage to the enduring originality of the two brands. This collaboration embodies both NEIGHBORHOOD’s signature aesthetic and adidas Originals’ sportswear heritage.
The long-term partnership between adidas and NEIGHBORHOOD began in the 1980s when NEIGHBORHOOD’s designer Shinsuke Takizawa was first introduced to adidas by RUN-D.M.C. The first milestone of a fruitful relationship blossomed in 2005 when Takizawa and adidas worked on the Consortium project, creating a version of the Superstars sneakers favoured by the aforementioned hip-hop trio.
“Creating a design that does not already exist was the original concept when adidas and I first worked together,” says Takizawa. “Our long-term relationship was forged based on mutual respect for product, innovation and reputation. To this day, that same concept is still at the core of our collaboration.”
Takizawa’s attention to detail, craftsmanship and unique sources of inspiration is evident in the new collection which combines strong seasonal hues with timeless silhouettes, while fusing casual and contemporary with traditional tailoring and construction.
Inspired by the classic adidas footwear and sportswear, the adidas Originals by NEIGHBORHOOD collection will be available for purchase from 11 October 2014 from 69 SGD to 229 SGD for apparel; and 220 SGD to 259 SGD for the footwear range. The NEIGHBORHOOD collection will be sold at adidas Originals stores at Pacific Plaza, Bugis+, 313@Somerset, JEM and Changi Airport Terminal 1 as well as Limited EDT stores at 313@Somerset, JEM, Marina Bay Sands and Queensway Shopping Centre.
