adidas and Nigo-helmed masters of reimagined vintage aesthetics Human Made launch their first collaborative project of Autumn/Winter 2020. Under the guiding principle ofthe future is in the past, two footwear silhouettes and a range of apparel drawn from the extensive archives of both adidas and Nigo’s personal collection offer a timeless simplicity, imbued with a visionary, forward-thinking spirit.
In part two of the fall/winter collection, the three stripes centric twist on Nigo’s vintage aesthetic wizardry takes a more expansive view of remixing possibilities, with designs ranging from simple co-branding and katakana text graphics to denim and technical makeovers. The Human Made sensibility doesn’t simply exist side by side with classic adidas design; it becomes an organic part of the design.
Japanese streetwear brand Human Made's founder NIGO® doesn't need to look far for inspiration. In fact with this adidas x Human Made sweatshirt, he just went to his closet. Inspired by an archival adidas pullover, the soft, high-collar layer moves in a new direction with logos and graphics throughout.
