The border between designer fashion and streetwear fashion is obliterated with the unruly collaboration between adidas Originals and Alexander Wang for a unisex apparel and footwear collection that overturns the commonly accepted rules.

Led by the symbolic rebellious mark of the collection, (the iconic trefoil and “originals” logos are flipped upside down), the collection will be available to the public via two drops, the first on 1 April, which includes the In-Out, All Over Print and Soccer packs.

Just as the name implies, the In-Out pack is identified with the inside out fabric exchange, mixed with alternating panels of fabric that is right side out – the subversive process a key design feature that is the distinctive identity of the collection. Made from dry French terry, the pack comprised of sweatshirts, shorts and track-suits, in a neutral palette of black, white and grey.

Lastly, the All Over Print outerwear pack consists of a windbreaker and reversible bomber jacket both with a co-branded all over print, incorporating both brand’s logos. All apparel styles bear the prominent Originals three stripes pattern in an inside out treatment, while the iconic trefoil is placed upside down, defying the conventions of branding. The footwear offerings include two basketball styles in black and white colourways.

Lastly, the sport inspired Soccer pack plays off the conventions of traditional football apparel, with an unexpected fashion injection. Signature team jacquard jersey tops, shorts and track-suits are offered in white, bluebird, maroon orange and dark indigo colourways. Besides that, the Signature Boost tooling is paired with sock-like liners, while the use of luxury materials elevates the traditional footwear from court to everyday style. Additionally, new Skate footwear styles feature a herringbone structured box tape sole with an upside down trefoil needle punched on the vamp.

The adidas Originals by Alexander Wang collection is now available exclusively on, and the second drop will happen on 15 April 2017, featuring the Logo, Parch and Velour packs.
