Where the runway meets the street

For Spring/Summer 2013, adidas SLVR builds on a growing tradition of smart and sleek sportswear while further refining their house aesthetic. There is a new emphasis on print, shape, and silhouette in pieces that combine breakthrough fabrics and an effortless attitude. The entire collection is fused with a basic elegance that matches the pace of 21st-century lifestyle. Under the creative direction of Dirk Schönberger, adidas SLVR offers a high-fashion perspective on sport luxury. The men’s collection include contrasting combinations of materials, like a wool blazer with a nylon lapel, and abstract prints. The patterns pull directly from Brad Pitt’s wardrobe in Fight Club, harnessing his character’s cool intellect and rough-and-tumble masculinity. Boxing shorts in nylon and French terry recall the karate theme, as do button-down shirts with banded collars, orange twill pants with contrasting tuxedo stripe details, and a black three-quarter trench coat trimmed in coordinating glossy paint.
