With the ‘sportswear meets high-street‘ trend still making its mark in fashion world, Topshop brings us another option to getting that athletic-luxe look we crave. The London based retailer has just released a preview of their 20-piece collaboration with Adidas Originals, available in stores March 20, and the meshing of the two lines proves brilliant.
The iconic Adidas logo, sporty sweat material, and slouchy silhouettes give the appeal of workout wear, but Topshop was sure to have their fashion-forward and feminine flavor featured as well. “Topshop and Adidas Originals working together is a total celebration of the greatness of fashion and sportswear and how important and influential they are to each other,” explained Topshop creative director Kate Phelan to Vogue.com. She reminds us that “we’re in a sportswear revolution at the moment,” and we don’t doubt her. With high fashion designers like Alexander Wang, Isabel Marant, and most recently, Chanel with their spring sneakers, showcasing the athletic influenced style on their recent runways, it looks like couture may be taking a more casual approach to women’s clothing.
As for our first look of the Topshop x Adidas collection, our wish list already includes the street style savvy graphic sweatshirts, the digital print high-top tennis shoes, and the luxe multi-colored tanks. View all the pieces here.
