Brands: Union x adidas SPEZIAL
Key Pieces: The adidas Garwen SPZL paired with the polyester tracksuit is a clean fit.
Editor’s Notes: adidas SPEZIAL unveiled its FW18 collection celebrating 30 years of Acid House, but the special line has also teamed up with Union for an exclusive capsule that pays homage to ’70s New York B-Boy culture and the DIY heritage of Terrace culture in the UK.
Encompassing a tracksuit, crewneck sweater, T-shirt and bucket hat, the range of apparel boasts a minimalist aesthetic, but punctuated with a bold “Union SPEZIAL Crew” graphic that pays dues to both brands’ roots in subculture. In addition, co-branding and adidas’ distinct Three Stripes motif is prevelant throughout. Furthermore, both labels reinterpret the classic adidas Garwen SPZL, one rendered in all-white and the other crafted out of premium suede.
If you like what you see, find the entire collection at Union beginning Friday, October 19.
