Adidas Originals x Print

There have been some memorable Adidas Originals Spring Summer ’14 collaborations of late, firstly with Topshop and then with Brazilian label Farm. On the street and active wear front Adidas is top of it’s game, with Adidas Originals leading the way in setting trends of it’s own that even the highest of high end labels can’t execute as effortlessly and effectively as Adidas themselves.

Their recent love affair with print has left me envious. Print, art and grafitti trends are dominating the global fashion scene this year, and Adidas has taken this opportunity to make some memorable collaborations. The collaboration with Farm has a distinctive Brazilian influence with bright exotic prints of toucans, florals and pineapples, while the Topshop collaboration used graffiti print to give a high-street feel.
