After giving you an extensive preview yesterday of the adidas Originals By Originals collection designed by Alyasha Owerka-Moore, focussing on Americana inspired apparel and footwear, we give you today a first exclusive look at the capsule collection that Kazuki of Fragment Design put together.
Completely different from both the Alyasha and the Jeremy Scott collection, the Japanese designer concentrated on adding technical features and materials to the apparel and the footwear, which overall keeps a very subtle and understated look. Exactly what we would have expected.
“Kazuki successfully brings highly technical and modern influences to a stylized, very wearable streetwear collection. The styles incorporate elements such as waterproof zippers, bonding and taping seamlessly into the design. Footwear highlights call out the KBall Basketball sihouettes that come in exclusive materials.
“The styling of my collection suits me and hopefully the audience that my designs appeal to. I would really like to thank all my friends for their support and inspiration but most importantly I would like to thank adidas for having the vision to give me, a freelance designer, a chance to work on a project like this,” Kazuki comments on the new partnership.”
The collection by Kazuki will be released along with the other adidas Originals By Originals collections in February 2009 at selected retailers. In Scandinavia Caliroots is the one to keep an eye on.
After the jump detailed images of the apparel and footwear range follow.
