Release Date: May 30
Editor’s Notes: adidas Originals partners with Japanese graffiti artist WANTO for a SS19 collaboration consisting of footwear and apparel. Leading the way is a joint take on the brand’s Yung-1 silhouette, which you can see above.
WANTO’s adidas Yung-1 boasts a predominantly blacked-out upper constructed from suede, with hits of bright yellow providing pops of color all throughout the sneaker. Leather detailing adds a premium touch to the pair, which is also done up in GORE-TEX fabric. The sneaker comes with bungee-style laces and that ever-popular chunky sole.
Joining the Yung-1 is a range of sportswear pieces including a track top and matching track pants, as well as a white short-sleeved T-shirt. The reflective tracksuit bears the same black and yellow color scheme as the Yung-1, also showcasing a graffiti motif created specifically for the collaboration. The tee then welcomes a hand-drawn illustration by WANTO.
All coming together to form an ideal outfit to wear while working on his art, WANTO’s SS19 adidas Originals collection launches May 30.
