Back in September of this year, we saw a capsule consisting of two footwear styles and a jacket from the adidas Originals x Pharrell Williams Solar Hu collaboration. The collection paid homage to the colourful traditions of East Africa while reiterating the belief that running in the region has the power to transform lives. With energetic prints inspired by East African style and the words “Empower” and “Inspire” emblazoned in bold Chinese lettering adding style nodes to Asian culture, a new offering now follows up on the previous collaboration by capturing the spirit of cities where cultures collide.
The suitably-titled “Inspiration Pack” borrows from a global perspective, with sneakers highlighted by the fan-favorite adidas NMD Hu silhouette. Expressed in four bold colourways, Power Blue, Clear Blue, Black, and White, each sneaker in the collection features a printed collar, designed to evoke traditional East African weaving techniques incorporated with cultural keynotes from both cultures mentioned earlier. Africa comes into play with the patterns on the inner lining of the footwear as well as the medley of colours and the Chinese characters on the upper is where you’ll find the Asian influence etched into the mix. Pharrell Williams and the Three Stripes take us around the world with this exciting wide-spanning collaboration, and The Good Life is here for the ride as usual.
The Good Life will be releasing the adidas x Pharrell Williams Solar Hu capsule collection will release online at 00:00 GST on Saturday November 10th.
