Inspired by Copenhagen, the city where utilitarian design, Japanese aesthetic and modernist values collide, adidas Originals and Kvadrat enter new collaboration to create a truly special edition take on the iconic Stan Smith silhouette. With adidas Originals working closely with Kvadrat, the release presents three new iterations of the Stan Smith constructed from Kvadrat’s contemporary fabric Squares by Danish designer Vibeke Rohland, countered with embroidered details of the 3-stripes mark and a constrast leader heel patch. Branding details on the tongue and heel complete the picture, placed atop a classic white cupsole. The adidas Originals × Kvadrat Stan Smith releases are out 6 July 2017, available in: Navy, Pink and Core Black – culminating as a collaborative release that is full of tone, texture and colour.
