Adidas x Kolor | Spring Summer 2016
A partnership between Japanese fashion label and the German leader in performance innovation, adidas x kolor offer up an electric vision of sport-intended style. Fusing the renowned craftsmanship of adidas with the authentic attitude of colour, the collaboration yields forward-minded sports apparel and footwear for men. Salon by Surrender is thrilled to be offering this collection of the latest adidas innovations.
Mr Junichi Abe, founder and designer of colour, creates 21st century updates on sport essentials such as the Space Mesh Hoodie, Techfit Shorts, and the Adizero XT, amongst other key pieces. He specialises in utilising technologies such as Climaheat and Climachill to create some of the most forward-thinking sportswear in the world.
With an emphasis on characteristics of form, fit, material, cut and colour, his pieces sear neon colours with silver foil, layers of jersey and mesh, and the breakthrough “sub-zero yarn” amongst other attributes - which is a silver foil half-peplum feature at the waist. The shoe - The Pure Boost ZG - harnesses a revolution in cushioning technology - composed of thousands of energy capsules that store and return energy in every step - and fuses it with an iconic new aesthetic.
