Why you need the Alexander Wang x adidas Originals Season 5 collection
See every single piece from the ready-to-wear club-leisure collection and find out when you can get your hands on it.
Did you really think round four was the last partnership between Alexander Wang and adidas Originals? Well, think again because the new season is here and we are obsessed. The new collection from Wang x adidas has just been announced and all the pictures are here. The previous round of streetwear was heavily inspired by bold athleisure pieces in an array of vivid and bright colours. This time, it seems that Alexander Wang and adidas Originals have adopted a fresh approach with the designs.
From what we can see, the new ready-to-wear collection is a combination of streetwear meets party-wear, and it has been called "club-leisure" by Wang himself. The idea of designing functional streetwear remains the same. However, being able to wear the clothes from the gym to the dance floor is a new concept.
The collection includes 12 apparel pieces and 4 styles of footwear with a slight contrast in the fashion on offer. We can see body-hugging silhouettes among the cycling shorts, bodysuits and leggings but there is also a range of gym shorts, track jackets and sweatpants. There is a strong focus revolving around graphic logos, pastel and neon colours, which pays homage to the true spirit of 80s-style activewear.
For footwear, Wang has decided to replicate and re-design previous shoe styles in new colourways, with a millennial pink being the stand-out shade. What's more? The designer introduced a new low-cut sneaker called the AW Wangbody Run, creating both a black and purple iteration.
It was only a few weeks back that the creatives from Alexander Wang dropped a second collaboration with UNIQLO. It featured edgy yet functional and basic streetwear, so we love that Wang has taken a different approach in this capsule with adidas Originals. It shows off the brand's versatility as it can really adjust to meet the standards of different brands but still maintain the edgy essence of Alexander Wang that we all know and love.
Will this be the last collection? After five rounds of fabulous fashion, considering how successful the collaboration is, we don't think this will be the last.
