adidas x Oyster Holdings
adidas Originals presents a brand new collaboration this month, teaming up with Los Angeles-based lifestyle brand Oyster Holdings to create a collection of premium sportswear and footwear built for travel.
Developing the elevated simplicity of adidas Originals’ XBYO line, the collaboration brings Oyster Holdings’ central mantra, “Traveling is a Sport”, to the forefront of the design process. In apparel, this manifests as premium, understated takes on classic adidas silhouettes, with subtle tweaks designed to make life in transit more seamless.
Most notably, the classic adidas Track Top, Full Zip hoodie and Crewneck sweatshirt are remade in a premium French terry cloth, with subtle adjustments to their silhouettes and gold metallic zippers on the pockets to keep valuables secure. This is then complemented by premium sweatpants for men and women, featuring the same premium construction and attention to detail, while an XBYO t-shirt with its unique paneled construction rounds out the apparel offer to create a comprehensive luxury travel collection.
As always, apparel is then countered with a number of collaborative footwear models, presented in a similar soft, pastel color palette. The retro Handball Top silhouette steps out in a premium suede construction with leather panel overlays offset by a translucent chalk rubber outsole, offered in Ash Blue/Chalk Coral and Easy Yellow/Ash Blue colorways. The collection breaks away from end of winter with a refreshing colour palette made for the journey into spring.
Alongside the Handball Top, the adidas 350 model assumes a simpler, tonal aesthetic constructed from premium nubuck leather with textile 3-stripes, rendered in Trace Scarlet or Ash Pearl across the upper with a contrast chalk rubber outsole. Each shoe is designed to perfectly blend with apparel, allowing the wearer to mix and blend to create the ultimate outfit for life on the move. The result is a new expression of classic adidas design language, creating the ultimate wardrobe for life in motion.
