Mark down this Thursday, July 17th, on your calendar as Upper Playground release first of four collaboration with adidas Originals. This debut launch will feature the works of Herbert Baglione, a Sao Paulo-based artist who has won recognition in his homeland of Brazil as well as Latin America and Europe. Known for his paradoxical subjects of individuality, death, and the paths we choose in lives, Baglione cleverly express these in bold black patterns on white background. "My sneaker design expresses my personal taste in shoes. I don't like colorful tennis shoes that are full of designs or anything that I feel is more than necessary. I believe being simple ends up being more challenging," stated Baglione
The Upper Playground x adidas Originals - Herbert Baglione sneaker will be available in limited number at Upper Playground online stores and retail locations starting this Thursday, July 17th, at 9 am PT. In the meantime, Herbert Baglione will be part of "Icons for Now" group exhibition starting in August at Denmark.
Release Date: July 17th (Thursday) | 9 am PST
