adidas Originals x Spezial Autumn/Winter 2014

Following the success of the ‘SPEZIAL’ gallery exhibition held in London back in 2013, 3-stripe devotee Gary Aspden now turns his attention to an archive inspired capsule collection for Autumn/Winter 2014.

The ‘SPEZIAL’ exhibition was curated to celebrate adidas through the brands collectors and fans, and that name has since carried to represent the very essence of the brand to its followers. This season, the adidas Originals ‘SPEZIAL’ capsule release continues the brands dedication to those passionate towards the brand as they draw from their rich history in sportswear and lifestyle, combining the two to deliver a collection that symbolises adidas’ unique personality in design.

The collection includes 12 classic apparel silhouettes which have all been given a contemporary update using more premium cuts and fabrics. Stand out pieces include the technical Olive Coach Jacket and the iconic Beckenbauer tracksuit, each re-worked for modern day.

Gary Aspden who designed and curated the collection summed up the release;

“adidas Originals x SPEZIAL takes work that was already done by genius German designers and changes the context… re-presenting it as something contemporary.”
