A Terrace Survival Guide: adidas x NEIGHBORHOOD Fall/Winter 201834.0522° N, 118.2437° W
"The latest release in the longstanding collaboration between adidas and Japanese streetwear titans NEIGHBORHOOD is built around an exclusive new graphic by Cali Thornhill DeWitt"
It has been 13 years since adidas and NEIGHBORHOOD have started working together and they have since released a bevy of collaborative products. Their latest Fall/Winter 2018 release takes inspiration from the Japanese brand’s deep-rooted connection to the motorcycle world.
The collaborators have also tapped Los Angeles-based artist Cali Thornhill DeWitt to create graphics that will be seen across every piece. For those who aren’t familiar with DeWitt, you may have seen his designs on Kanye West’s 2016 The Life Of Pablo tour merch.
A strong military style is present throughout the collection and it fits alongside DeWitt’s graphics. The standout piece within the apparel range is the extended-length M65 field jacket with a detachable Primaloft-padded inner vest. The NBHD Old English font can be seen on each of the four front pockets, while DeWitt’s target designs appear on both the left chest and above the zipped back pocket.
In terms of the footwear the three footwear styles consists of the Kamanda, Stan Smith and I-5923. You’ll spot NEIGHBORHOOD lettering, adidas branding, and DeWitt’s tonal graphics across every sneaker.
The adidas x NEIGHBORHOOD FW18 will be available for purchase on September 1st, 2018.
