This is the first time that OAMC and adidas have teamed up, with the brand being given free reign to create all-new silhouettes for the Brand With the Three Stripes.
OAMC creative director Luke Meier explained the inspiration behind the collection. “I was looking at some of the early 90s references from when I lived there for this collection, and some of the fabrics, shapes, and motifs helped to create a Pacific Northwest mood,” he says.
