adidas Originals x Henry Poole exclusive pack
The lifestyle sneakers brand fully embraces the juxtaposing styling of sneakers paired with formal wear by rolling out their latest with a renowned English tailoring treatment of Savile Row fame. Renowned for its long relationship with the British Royal family, Henry Poole has been at the forefront of bespoke suit design, especially since its commission of a modern-style dinner jacket for the future King Edward VII in the 1880s.
For the adidas Originals exclusive collaboration, Henry Poole has put together two shoe designs inspired by the brand’s most iconic day and evening suit silhouettes. The first, an NMD R2 Day Shoe, carries an adaptation of the Winston Churchill Chalk Stripe house cloth, inspired by the one Sir Winston Churchill wore while holding a Thompson submachine gun. While the second, an NMD XR1 Evening Shoe, is fitted with the abovementioned dinner jacket for the future king in the iconic celestial blue with black grosgrain silk detailing reminiscence of the tuxedo lapels.
The shoes will come with a garment bag inside a limited edition wooden shoebox. The NMD XR1 Evening Shoe will be available exclusively on Size? from today onwards, whereas the NMD R2 Day Shoe comes with a later release date of 4 August.

Close to Paradise by Loewe
Loewe breathes in the free-spirited Balearic air with an infectious summer anthem that transports one back to the wild nights of Ibiza in the ‘70s and ‘80s.

The limited edition record features an album artwork created by Ill-Studio, with the vinyl pressed by The Vinyl Factory. The record forms part of a more extensive editorial ode to Ibiza: a 12-chapter digital publication featuring 12 iconic places and 16 prominent personalities, available for free download on iTunes and Spotify.
