New Adidas X Alexander Wang Sneaker Collaboration On It’s Way May 19th 2018! (Flames or Lames!?)

Alexander Wang has always been a designer whose high-energy, high-fashion gear is precision-crafted to provide a serious jolt. And while Wang’s own gear can get a little avant-garde, his recent work with Adidas takes things back down to street level. The second drop of his third collection for Adidas Originals hits stores on the 19th, and after getting a first look, we’re extremely hyped for its gritty Space Age–factory-in-Berlin vibes. There’s something very Euro about this drop—so ugly in its functionality that it circles back around to cool, while blessedly skipping right past the irony that defines some of Wang’s peers.

There’s an entirely new sneaker silhouette, reminiscent of the forthcoming Yung 1, that’s chunky and colorful, with a cream, green, and black sole, netting, and drawstring detailing. Its mixture of materials (suede, carbon fiber, neoprene) feels super futuristic, but not in an unwearable way. Then there’s a more serious, sleeker sock-sneaker, a black cotton number that’s lightened up by a pebbled white midsole and gum-sole bottom. The clothes, meanwhile, are very Run Lola Run meets The Matrix: functional silhouettes tweaked just so, with detailing inspired by the idea of production defects. Included in the drop are black nylon notched-collar jackets with red text printed down one side, and high-collar bombers (Adidas minidresses with stripes running past the hem, too). The pieces are meta and self-aware but not weighed down by excess pretension or sporty detailing.

The collection is modeled in its promo materials by Hanne Gaby Odiele and Binx Walton—“caught,” Adidas writes, “in the disheveled back office of the factory’s manager.” Who knows, or cares, why! In any case, it won’t just be the girls having all the fun—the gear is unisex. It’s dystopian-future fashion that’s still chill and super wearable—and a good reminder of why we love Alexander Wang’s minimalist cool in the first place.
