adidas Originals is joining forces with Canadian menswear brand Wings + Horns for a SS17 collection. Next to refined sportswear pieces such as tech parkas, hoodies, bottoms, and T-shirts there’s more: The adidas Originals by wings+horns Spring Summer 2017 line also includes two footwear models: The NMD_R2 in two materializations (including premium leather) and a Campus 80.
Started in 2004 between Tokyo, Japan, and Vancouver, Canada, the Wings + Horns brand has built an international reputation for streetwear that incorporates elevated materials, fashion-forward silhouettes, and carefully appointed details. That current trend towards refined athletic wear in monochromatic outfits? It’s safe to say Wings + Horns played a hand in its rise.
Speaking of monochromatic outfits, the two shoes in the collection – the NMD_R2 and Campus 80 – match the collection’s key hues of grey and navy blue. These colors were inspired by the Arctic Summer, also the backdrop for the collection’s photo shoot.
The classic Campus 80 blueprint has been updated with a fluid one-piece construction and finished with embroidered 3-stripes details for subtle branding. It’s available in the collection’s seasonal grey and blue colorways.
The NMD_R2 as the latest generation of NMD is materialized two versions: The first in Primeknit with the Wings + Horns collection’s signature geometric motif and the second from a single piece of premium leather. That one’s a real eye catcher, check out the pics below with some of our favorite pieces from the collection. Both shoes feature the NMD_R2’s essential technical details (read our detailed story on the new silhouette here).
The adidas Originals by wings+horns Spring Summer 2017 Collection will be available on April 27 at adidas Originals Flagship Stores, Online and select retailers.
