Yesterday marked the launch of our adidas Original Series “Street Icons” zine, which is dedicated to those who break rules and ignore conventions; individuals who believe in something and stand up for it. The issue features a long-form piece on the New York Voguing scene, interviewing three of its most seasoned veterans on the culture and where its future leads, and a range of sneaker-oriented illustrations by artist Ruudios, both of which you can see a preview of in our launch post.
One of the centerpiece features of the zine, however, is this “It Takes Two” editorial. Created off the back of the lyrics from Rob Base and DJ EZ Rock 1988 hit, “It Takes Two,” photographer Mattias Bjorklund captured models Omari and and Mayya in an abandoned London warehouse in a variety of complementary adidas Originals outfits. The result is the power of two; courageous enough to go against the current with the support of one another.
You can pick the zine up now from adidas Originals stores.
