INTRODUCING A LIMITED-EDITION SNEAKER RANGE FOR FALL/WINTER 2013
Already a highlight of the Paris menswear shows (which started today), Raf Simons debuted a charmingly off-kilter collection for Fall/Winter 2013 that included ingenious belt-tied jacket necklines, protruding shirt cuffs and retro '70s collars, brilliant striped satin backpacks, large minimal rounded pockets, and shimmering satin pants—to start. As usual, the footwear demanded attention of its own, a continuation of the athletic running shoe we saw in Spring. Now it has been announced the sneaker is a collaboration between Simons and adidas, per the press release:
"A total of five models in three colorways each have been designed based on adidas signature high-end performance outdoor and running silhouettes. The all-black models use multicolored silicone bubbles in rose, green, blue, or burgundy accentuating the shape of the shoe by creating visual depths."
Sounds like an alien invasion from planet CHIC. Be one of the first to get your hands on this covetable collab when the sneaks hit the shelves in July 2013. For a preview of two different colorways, click the slideshow above.
