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.”

Their experience and skill has been channelled into this impressive collaborative effort – LFT FLD.

Taking a retrospective approach whilst applying refined, considered construction, LFT FLD present a solid selection of sportswear inspired apparel. Performance outerwear options in the contemporary neoprene jacket and reversible hoodie are the stand out pieces, while staple athletic silhouettes dominate the release, bearing heavy graphic designs from none other than Fergus Purcell – the man behind the Palace logo and many other big name designs, has now turned his attention to the graphic identity and branding for LFT FLD.

The LFT FLD first release is available now at size? and will be available from other select retailers shortly.
