adidas by RAF SIMONS Presents Autumn/Winter 2015-16



With Autumn/Winter 2015/16, the collaboration between adidas and Raf Simons continues for its fifth season. The inspiration is taken from outer space,  using a vintage astronauts as the creative starting point. The collection draws upon this idea for its colors and materials.

The characteristic adidas by Raf Simons models, the Stan Smith and Ozweego II, are featured in subtle and off white tones, with hues of yellow in addition to strong purple and green tones. The Stan Smith is also available in four different versions of worn and distressed leather, specifically treated to give an aged look. The Response Trail II is updated from last season in black and white with interchangeable spoilers in contrasting colors. Highlights of the collection will be two new exceptional silhouettes: the Response Trail Robot and the Ozweego Robot. Inspired by vintage astronaut suits and backpacks, moulded and machined details similar to authentic closures, zippers and straps are added.

Presented this January during Paris Men’s Fashion Week, the footwear range will hit retail in mid July 2015. Here, we take a closer look.

    Friend, let’s get straight to the point, I was looking for connections and I found a couple
    immediately. I am thinking carefully about how to put this, but let’s start
    with the fact that you really reminded me of someone I was friends with in my
    childhood. This guy, was an Indonesian-Dutch mestizo. He used to game allot
    with his brother. I was the only child of my parents. I used to watch Discovery
    channel and National Geographic allot, besides episodes of Pokémon, Totally
    Spies, Yu-Gi-Oh and some more. Also MTV comes to mind, which was really cool. I
    knew allot of songs, but the Red Hot Chili Peppers and 50 Cent were the
    greatest. I also had an album of the Black Eyed Pease and an old fashioned cassette
    of the Backstreet Boys. You used to listen to Bon Jovi, I remember.

    You were my first black (half-foreign) friend, which was quite interesting. When I was
    younger, I came into close contact with racism, which for me is should be
    transformed to just openness to other cultures. It is a fact that people tend
    towards relationship with people who look like themselves. I didn’t like what I
    saw. I guess watching animals and other human processes taught me to have
    respect for people as they are very complex and complicated.

    I have to say I have more memories, but I want to keep some for myself (stacking) to
    always be able to provide people with the love I have. Although I just can’t
    tell you all, stacks are especially related to the social and financial
    environment, which is okay.

    After we sort of broke up (we just went our own way) we always respected each other and
    stayed friends. I saw the real guy just a week ago and it still felt we were really
    okay with each other. Of course, because we haven’t seen each other for a long
    time, there are still many opportunities for growth which should be taken when the relationship is fruitful. I guess we will see in time! Bam!
