Alexander Wang x Adidas Originals Just Dropped Their Latest Collab

ICYMI: There’s yet another “core” word to put in your vocabulary. Gorpcore — similar to, but not to be confused with, normcore — was defined by The Cut in May 2017. “It’s not a hyper-elevated, high-fashion take on hiking clothes,” Jason Chen wrote. “Much of it is rather defiantly ugly, like something you’d buy (or exactly what you’d buy) at REI before a weekend in Phoenicia.”

 

With that definition in mind, you’ll understand what we mean when we say that Alexander Wang’s latest collaboration with Adidas Originals is, well, pretty gorpcore-ish.

 

 

Now in its fourth season, the Alexander Wang x Adidas Originals partnership takes classic pieces from the Adidas archives and deconstructs and reimagines them through Wang’s lens. The unisex offering, which includes 18 clothing pieces and five styles of footwear (including a revival of the Skate Super shoe from their first collaboration), gives off an off-kilter soccer team uniform vibe, with a color palette of reds and grays and cut-off logos.

 

Anna Ewers models the Season 4 cllection in a tongue-in-cheek camping shoot, photographed by Brianna Capozzi and styled by Haley Wollens. The images show Ewers wrapped in a sleeping bag stitched together from jackets and roasting one of the trainers over a small campfire.

 

The new collection drops November 14 and is available at Alexander Wang flagship stores and online. Footwear will also be available at select Adidas store locations and online.
