adidas Originals and Wales Bonner have come together to present their first collaborative collection, having first been previewed on the runway during London Fashion Week in January 2020.
Paying homage to the late Jam Master Jay, the collection has been designed with the iconic DJ’s fashion trailblazing sense of style at its heart.
Inspired by the designer’s own Jamaican heritage, the collection features Wales Bonner’s take on the SL72 silhouette and two different versions of the iconic adidas Samba sneaker.
First up, the SL72 Wales Bonner captures the spirit of the 1970s with a corduroy upper matched with rich velvet and antique leather overlays. All sat atop a tricolor rubber outsole. Drawing on the inspiration of the collection, this carefully considered update to a timeless classic is available in Trace Pink/Collegiate Orange/Maroon and
Hemp/Maroon/Forest Green colorways.
Next, a Core Black/Cream White colorway sees Wales Bonner elevate the classic Samba sneaker with crochet and hand-stitched details, as well as an elongated tongue that extends over the laces. Meanwhile, a Cream White/Brown colorway reimagines the Samba silhouette with raw cotton upper, hand-stitched details, velvet laces, and a translucent rubber outsole.
