In March this year, adidas Originals launched their second collection from their White Mountaineering collection in South Africa. The pair have collaborated again, this time to release their Fall/Winter collection for 2017.
adidas Originals and Japanese menswear label White Mountaineering reconvene the partnership for FW17, bringing Yosuke Aizawa’s inimitable aesthetic to a comprehensive range of adidas Originals sneakers and apparel. True to the philosophy of creating an elevated technical product with an unparalleled sartorial touch, White Mountaineering’s latest collection incorporates a range of cold weather design in a stripped-back seasonal colour palette, which is further complemented by footwear of different silhouettes, including the NMD_R2 and NMD Trail.
In this latest collaboration, Yosuke Aizawa’s signature aesthetic makes a welcome comeback throughout a number of silhouettes, including cargo pants and jersey pieces, with premium outerwear offerings include a Hooded Windbreaker reinterpreted with a technical design language. Each design is easily distinguishable by signature panelled constructions and atypical 3-stripes placements in black, white and olive. Alongside the footwear collection, the collaboration continues with its military themes with both classic and contemporary 3-stripes silhouettes. Returning, the NMD Trail steps out in a duo of colorways with reflective print details and a sawtooth outsole for a better grip. Likewise, the NMD_R2 also returns with essential panelled construction and signature 3-stripes details.
The FW17 collaboration of the adidas Originals X White Mountaineering encapsulates the commitment of both labels to create striking street-ready designs with an uncompromised performance edge. The range of footwear and apparel is available from this week from adidas’ online store, Area3 in Braamfontein, and Astore in Cape Town.
