Stripe away the colors, the add-ons, and the unnecessary appendages. What you will find are the basic frameworks and a renewal sense of creativity, unabated by the past or the fear of failure. Those and more are the premises behind the relaunch of adidas Originals Consortium Collection. Billed as “Tabula Rasa”, or “Blank Slate” in Latin, the re-launch of the once popular program will and only focus on the forms of adidas Originals classics – Pro Shell, Decade, ZX 500, Matchplay and BC. Devoid of anything additional, “Tabula Rasa” conveys a language of exclusivity with materials such as premium leather, suede, nubuck, and pig skin. The utmost care put into the initial designs produced meticulous details like waxed laces, embossed sock liners, suede tongue, and other long gone practices in today’s sneakers. Look for the re-vamped Consortium Collection from adidas Originals at select retailers in the coming months.
