Editor’s Notes: Eric Emanuel is back alongside adidas for a second collaboration, this time for SS19. The new collection of footwear and apparel once again pulls inspiration from Emanuel’s childhood basketball trips, specifically time spent in hotels.
“I’ve grown since I was that kid on the road for a tournament; I’ve travelled, I’ve been exposed to a world much bigger and more beautiful than the younger me ever got to see. I find a reference on every trip, and this collection is a reflection of a Springtime trip,” says the designer.
The floral pattern showcased throughout Eric Emanuel’s SS19 adidas collection is a nod to the wallpaper of the hotel room that Eric stayed in during the aforementioned trip. The motif is then paired against a sand-colored backdrop, showcased on pieces you might find on the court or courtside.
Emanuel chose to work on the Rivalry Hi OG and the Resto Mod for this particular collab, as the Rivalry Hi boasts the all-over floral pattern. The sneaker features a leather upper, with contrasting off-white Three Stripes and matching laces. The stitching and the branding are noted in pink. The Resto Mod welcomes the floral motif on the semi-transparent TPU heel panel, heel pull, and tongue label. The upper is done up in a sandy linen shade, complemented by black accents.
In addition to the Rivalry Hi OG and the Resto Mod, Eric Emanuel and adidas present the Adilette slides in all-over floral print. Apparel from the collection consists of beige-colored track pants, basketball shorts, and a mock neck long-sleeved top, each with floral detail. An anorak, hoodie, and headband round out the assortment.
Eric Emanuel’s SS19 adidas collection is scheduled to release on Saturday, April 27.
