Chinese New Year is just around the corner and to celebrate, adidas Originals and Pharrell Williams will be launching the PW CNY Pack, featuring special Chinese New Year make-ups of the SolarHu Glide and BYW models. The CNY pack was inspired from Chinese color symbolism: red and gold, which is said to bring good fortune and happiness to the wearer in the New Year.
Continuing this theme, the SolarHu Glide CNY features an embroidered ‘Fú’ symbol on its upper, which is traditionally placed upside-down on the doors of Chinese homes in order to bring prosperity to the household. Similarly, the BYW CNY features the word ‘ambition’ embroidered across both the left and right uppers, inspiring its wearer to remain determined throughout the coming year.
The adidas Originals by Pharrell Williams CNY Hu Pack will now be available on Monday, February 11th and the SolarHu Glide CNY will retail at $150 and the CNY BYW style will retail at $250. Check out the full collection below.
