adidas Originals and Alexander Wang return for Season 3 of their subversive collaboration of footwear and apparel, available on May 19th at select retailers, adidas Originals and Alexander Wang flagship locations, and both brands’ e-commerce sites. Inspired by production errors and factory inconsistencies, the collection elevates mistakes, turning them into the foundation of the range. Pixelated graphics, uneven printing, and perma-wrinkled fabrics establish rejection as the new perfection.
Drop 2 finds its inspiration in workwear. The exciting, easy-to-wear pieces are defined by electrifying, pixelated cable-inspired motifs that spell out care instructions like “caution: do not remove” in English and German. The language is emblazoned irregularly across pants, tees, dresses, and jackets.
Crafted from heavy pique, the AW Crew and AW Joggers form a sleek black tracksuit with a contemporary edge. The slim-fit AW Crop TT and matching baby-doll AW Dress are comprised of a midweight tricot with subtle tonal jacquard knits. A tailored and technical topper with mesh lining, the AW Coach Jacket boasts the drop’s bold graphic down the front.
In footwear, Wang contrasts the minimal (AW Run Clean) and the maximal (AW Reissue Run). The former’s sleek mesh sock upper sits atop an adidas Boost midsole, while the latter’s collage of textures and styles makes the season’s boldest statement. Offered in signal red and classic black, Drop 2 rounds out an essentials-based collection from adidas Originals by Alexander Wang.
