Alexander Wang, Adidas partner on unisex line
Designer: Alexander Wang is, by his own description, a sneakerhead. He once designed a clothing collection around them, with dresses, tops and handbags emulating his favorite sneaks, such as the classic white and green Adidas Stan Smith.
Now, the: Associated Press reports that Wang has taken his sneaker love to a new level, partnering with Adidas for a line of apparel and footwear that seeks, in his words, to “disrupt” the famous Adidas look while still preserving its familiarity. One example: rotating the well known trefoil logo upside down. Another: “deconstructing” the Adidas sneaker. Also, the entire collection is unisex: Pants, tops, shoes.
Wang, 32: introduced the line as a surprise finale to his Fashion Week runway show Sept. 10, in a huge space on a Hudson River pier. After modeling creations from Wang label, models rushed backstage to change into new Adidas garb, while a 1 1 film teased the new collection.
