Drawing musical inspirations from coast to coast, adidas Originals serves up a proud and amplified Coastal Artists Collection for Fall/Winter 2010. Taking cues from the electrifying solos of rock to skate and rap, everything in A-OK in Trefoil hoodies, t-shirts and kicks. Of course, when given the sonic treatment, the Trefoil is less of a cool blue than a stormy whirl, and at times high voltage dispensing with stars and bolts. Plaid button downs win a rock cursive interpretation of the adidas Originals logo, and the palette for the shirt follows the energetic round up of electric blues and purples set against the ever-classic black and white.
In terms of sneakers, adidas Originals revived a few classics such as the Superskate from the 70s, and retooled it with suede, rip-stop nylon, and rocking printed graphics on the side panel, and the Attitude Vulc West in a mix of perforated leather, canvas and vulcanized soles that represent the West Coast’s laid-back insouciance. Meant for those born to run and rock, channel your inner guitar hero, and get your sound bytes ready for fall.
