This new spring collection from adidas Originals and Rita Ora is definitely one of my favorites! The Asian Arena collection was inspired by the mythical allure of the Japanese geisha. Loving the Asian influenced prints, obsessed with the reversible bomber jacket and kimono is so fresh! The apparel is complimented by footwear styles: ZX FLUX NPS Up, Tubular, ZX FLUX and Stan Smith, as well as extra wide brims on bucket and visor styles and an obi inspired box backpack.
Heritage street silhouettes are boldly restructured to nod to the wide arms of the classic kimono and the origami-esque structure of the obi. Using the graphic elements of three stripe taping, trefoils and straps to repeat themes of drapery and geisha style, Asian Arena fuses worlds with polished poetry. Oriental landscapes unfold on the Kimono all over print, undulating under the graceful flight of powerful cranes.
The Asian Arena collection is scheduled to launch globally on February 6, 2016 but you can shop the collection now on adidas.com.
