Each season, adidas Highlights takes essential pieces from the varied collections of the German sportswear label and reworks them in an effort to better define the look of now. Curated from the adidas Originals and performance lines, Highlights provides an insider’s take on the sport and lifestyle trends emerging across the brand’s diverse categories.
Inspired by collegiate sports like rowing and tennis, the collection delivers easy, pared-down silhouettes and subtle yet evocative colorways. It also plays with adidas iconography, emphasizing bold logos and reinventing many of the label’s most singular shoes, like the Adilette, the Gazelle, and the Stan Smith. As a whole, the collection is highly textured, offering heathered cottons, fleeces and quilted fabrics in tones of red, white, blue, orange and green. Additionally, adidas Performance elements have been incorporated as waterproof zipper taping and reflective 3M technologies.
The men’s range consists of colorful anoraks, collegiate-inspired graphics, and even tie-dye. This creates a natural athletic mood with a dose of contemporary cool. The women’s collection, meanwhile, adds a sensual edge to athleticism via intriguing takes on transparency. The range also features the Kanai Pack Dye Jacket, a striking new take on tie-dye that yields one-of-a-kind pieces through a breakthrough dyeing process.
adidas Highlights' SS16 collection will soon be available at select retailers. Furthermore, the unique adidas concept stores No74 in Berlin and No42 in Paris will offer a wide selection of the SS16 Highlights collection.
