Brand: adidas Originals by Alexander Wang
Key Pieces: Our favorite items in the third drop from AW and adidas’ third season include the creased, box-fit windbreaker jacket, and the AW Turnout Trainer, a multi-textured shoe that plays with color, fabric, and finish.
Release Date: June 23
Editor’s Notes: The third drop from season three of adidas Originals and Alexander Wang’s collaboration continues to draw inspiration from production errors, intentionally incorporating oversights such as exposed hems, creases, uneven prints, and pixelated graphics into the capsule. Comprising a total 16 pieces, the drop includes reimagined adidas Originals classics alongside new additions such as crop tops, skirts, and dresses.
The AW Turnout Trainer is a particularly cool item. The running-inspired nylon upper is pitted against suede overlays and an industrial foam tongue, while pops of color and exposed production details tie the silhouette to drop three’s theme.
According to Wang and adidas, the idea behind this capsule is drawn from a “fictional unlabeled box found in the adidas archives,” a box that would contain forgotten, untouched, perma-creased samples. The shoot location furthers this theme, situated in a place where, “when it comes to clothing, so much can go wrong” — a laundromat.
