Luxury streetwear label mastermind JAPAN has partnered up with adidas Originals Consortium for one final project before they close up shop after 15 years in the game. The capsule collection, ‘BEST of adidas Originals’, features iconic Originals apparel and footwear models chosen by MMJ, reworked with their signature jet-black palette and skull and bones logo.
The range stays true to the clean lines of Originals silhouettes, pulling its focus in on the premium materials used throughout.
mastermind JAPAN tackles classic adidas footwear – models much-loved by the Japanese market – such as popular running style ZX500, the basketball favourite Rivalry Hi, revolutionary-for-its-time Country and training shoes Gazelle and Promodel CF. The collection is unified with the repetition of materials used such as soft leather, laser cut leather, pigskin suede, flocked reflective logos and bone lace jewels, though these elements are executed slightly different for each shoe model. Every pair is encased in a special black box.
The adidas Originals by mastermind JAPAN collection (ZX500 OG, RIVALRY HI, Gazelle, Promodel and Superstar 80s) will release in-store tomorrow (June 3rd) at 12pm noon EST. Remaining stock (if any) will be made available for sale online at PackerShoes.com at an unspecified time later tomorrow afternoon. Retail will be $200-225 USD each (sold separately).
