It doesn’t get much bigger than this, as adidas Originals x BAPE prepare to release their antipcated FW16 Capsule collection. The delivery is truly of massive proportions, as the sure-to-sell-out apparel and footwear drop gets an official lookbook. Both brands have teased bits from the collection throughout the year, but now with an official and more detailed look, it seems everyone is ready to go. Sportswear and streetwear hasn’t married this well in while, although BAPE are always collaborating with the best brands around. Featuring their brilliant, trademark Shark print on Adidas’ID96 Down Jacket, it’s clear there is a great harmony between the two.
adidas describe the collection wel via their Twitter, by stating it’s: “A collection celebrating the best of both brands, BAPE’s (@BAPEOFFICIAL) signature camo is worked into adidas icons including #NMD.”
Two camo covered NMD Runner‘s arrive in BAPE‘s signature print, dressed along the upper in an attractive manner. Not to the point it’s overwhemling too, as both variations are balanced out with hints of white and black throughout. This is the case for the two jackets also, with two Firebird track tops matching the NMD colourways and a seperate larger jacket which is linked/described above. Apprently the collection hits adidas in-store and online on November 26th, with a W. Europe release coming a month later. See the gallery above and check back soon for prices and a link to purchase.
