Sure, adidas does collaborations, but it’s not that common. While long-term partnerships with the likes of Parley Ocean Plastic, Kanye, or Jerry Lorenzo spring to mind, they’re no replacement for one-off collabs. There’s something exciting about a one-time, probably-never-again collaboration and adidas x Marimekko perfectly encapsulates that.

Perhaps most interesting about the collaboration is the distance between the two labels. While adidas needs no introduction, Marimekko is a label you may not have heard about, but one with a history you should know about. Founded in 1951, the Finnish company ushered in a new era for women’s clothing during its early years. Introducing bold, patterned fabrics to the daily wardrobe changed the face of women’s style and the sense of freedom surrounding it.

In classic style, adidas x Marimekko features the brand’s inimitable patterns. Simple and eye-catching, these motifs dress some of adidas’ staple designs from sportswear to shorts, Stan Smiths, and a Forum Low. The playful collaboration lands just in time for summer and you can shop our top picks below.
