adidas by Raf Simons – Spring/Summer 2014 Collection Preview

By - July 23rd, 2013

When it comes to wooing the collaborative talents of high-fashion designers, it seems that sportswear giant adidas has it down to an art. For the Spring/Summer 2014 season, adidas will be working closely with Raf Simons once again to produce a sneaker collection that is futuristic and otherworldly. At the moment, we can report that there will be 21 designs in total that rock Simons’ characteristic affinity for edgy and intricate details. Also worth mentioning is a reprise of Simons’ “shoe-in-shoe” concept, which further adds to the collection’s alien qualities. While the majority of the sneakers boast bold, color-blocked aesthetics in bright colorways such as classic red, forest green, candy pink and lemon yellow, there are also some interesting designs that feature animal-skin embossments and at least one with an all-over floral pattern. The collection is expected to drop in February 2014 at select adidas Originals concept stores, sneaker boutiques, and Raf Simons shops worldwide. Be excited.
