adidas is back with another premium SPEZIAL collection that takes inspiration from the brand’s rich history and converts it into modern apparel. The upcoming SS17 SPEZIAL collection is clearly influenced both by British casual and Jamaican reggae cultures and draws attention to some lesser-known vintage adidas silhouettes.
The SPEZIAL apparel line carries a classic sportswear and leisurewear look that was made contemporary through modern cuts. Besides a characteristic premium SPEZIAL tracksuit, the apparel range includes a military jacket, as well as football-themed T-shirts and jerseys, and a polo shirt.
And what about kicks? The adidas SPEZIAL SS17 collection includes four different footwear styles: the Atlanta SOZL, Jogger SPZL, Brisbane SPZL leisure shoe and the Garwen SPEZIAL. Each silhouette was chosen for its (sub)cultural influences in both the UK and Jamaica.
The combination of British casual, Jamaican reggae and classic football aesthetics is a real deal. It’s also nice to see some rarely seen vintage silhouettes back on the shelves. The adidas Originals SPEZIAL SPRING/SUMMER ’17 collection will be available at adidas and select retailers later this month.
