Raf Simons collaborative work with Adidas has showcased both an avant garde futurism and high fashion reinterpretations of classic silhouettes. For fall 2016, Simons has definitely focused his attention on the classics.
Whether it’s rearranging the perforations on a Stan Smith, introducing unconventional colorways, or luxury construction, Raf Simons has always displayed a deft touch in working with Adidas classics, striking a fine balance between his own vision and the essence of the original shoe.
With the Matrix Spirit, Simons has exercised some extreme subtlety. This canvas, high-top basketball shoe comes from the archives straight into sophisticated, contemporary minimalism. The aged white and iconic Adidas blue take center stage here, while a trefoil, and Raf Simons logo on either side of the ankles make up the only branding.
