[UPDATE] Thursday, January 12 — Highsnobiety’s man on the ground in Kaliningrad, Alec Leach, has provided more photos and additional details. He reports there are at least two sneakers alongside the apparel. One of which is a ACE 16+ SUPER with a laceless sock design; the other is a reissue of the Copa football shoe. Both come in two colorways.
He also reports that the apparel is full of football gear, including tracksuits, coach jackets, scarves, track pants and possibly more. Most, if not all, of which feature “FOOTBALL” in cyrillic. Check out the additional pics below, then scroll down for the original story.
Gosha Rubchinskiy has unveiled a collaboration with adidas Football at his FW17 show in Kaliningrad, Russia.
Images from the show have already begun circulating on social media, and Business of Fashion is reporting that the collection goes beyond a one-off collab. Instead, it’s said to be a longer-term initiative that will unfold over three seasons in the run up to the 2018 World Cup in Russia, which adidas is sponsoring.
The report also says the output of the collaboration will include additonal content and events, including two more runway shows in Russian cities hosting the World Cup. “It’s early stages, so we’re not sure yet. There will be a book. There might also be a capsule collection with the World Cup. The big event will be with the World Cup,” Adrian Joffe, president of Comme des Garçons, which owns and operates the Gosha Rubchinskiy label, told BoF.
Details are still scarce, stay tuned to Highsnobiety for official pictures and reports from the show. In the meantime, check out some of the early shots below.
