After teasing the partnership for some time, Alexander Wang debuted his first capsule for adidas Originals on the runway at NYFW last night. The all-black-everything collection has the downtown cool you'd expect from Wang, and generally makes a BIG DEAL out of the fact that Wang turned adidas' iconic trefoil logo UPSIDE DOWN. Because he's a bad boy like that, ok? It's called being edgy, ever heard of it?
Nine items from the whopping 84-piece capsule are dropping today, but not online, no. They will only be available for sale today only, from pop-up trucks roving around NYC, London, and Tokyo. If you think you have what it takes to claw your way up a World War Z-style human wall of hype beasts to get your hands on one of these hoodies, the schedule is below, and may the odds ever be in your favor...
Canal Street & Mercer – 12pm 5th Ave & 57th Street – 3pm McCarren Park at Bedford & N 12th – 6pm
If you're not pressed, and can wait until next spring, the entire line will be available at adidas Originals as well as Alexander Wang stores.
