Japan’s Mastermind are known for their mix of aggressive modernism and premium materials, but what catches the public eye before any of the technical details is their predominantly black look, complete with skull and crossbones logo. This longtime favorite motif, aligned with the refined aesthetic on the construction end, makes Mastermind a legitimate standout on the street fashion scene.
For Adidas to recruit Mastermind and their signature look is almost unfair, given the tear that the brand with the three stripes has been on. Two modern silhouettes, the NMD XR1 and the Tubular Instinct get the Mastermind treatment: lots of black, premium leather, and, of course, the skull and crossbones.
