Known to many as the man behind some of streetwear’s most seminal labels, few names hit as hard as NIGO. For two decades the Japanese style icon has carved out the landscape of youth culture with his unforgettable clothing and creations, and for Fall/Winter 2014 adidas Originals joins forces with the street pioneer for a special collaborative collection – adidas Originals by NIGO.
True to his passion for classic and vintage clothing, NIGO has handpicked and re-interpreted pieces from the adidas Originals archives, blending a sportswear aesthetic with contemporary street style to create new street classics. The apparel collection features unforgettable adidas Originals pieces alongside staples of American sportswear such as coach and varsity jackets, whilst the footwear offers unique interpretations of iconic silhouettes such as the ZX 500 and Superstar 80.
With the rich and impassioned history of adidas Originals alongside NIGO’s own iconic legacy as a pioneer of clothing and culture, one thing is clear – it will be Original.
