Editor’s Notes: Wales Bonner and adidas Originals’ partnership, first previewed on the runway during London Fashion Week in January 2020, is finally being released. The collection focuses heavily on the ’70s and how Jamaican music, at the time, had a huge (and lasting) influence on British culture.
The ’70s aesthetic seen throughout this collection is one that has been hugely popular across the industry over the past year, most notably in footwear, as the New Balance 327 became one of the sneakers of the year following its launch this past spring.
For this collection, Grace Wales Bonner taps her own Jamaican heritage to rework adidas staples such as the football jersey, tracksuit, and Three Stripes T-shirts. The entire collection will go on sale from November 20 via adidas.com and other, select retailers.
