Designer Junichi Abe’s vision for adidas by kolor is street meets sport, showcasing bright, confident, ultra-graphic athletic wear for men who aren’t afraid to make a statement. Each season finds Abe experimenting with form, cut, fabric and colour, while also utilizing performance technology from the Three Stripes. These innovations — including Climaheat, Climachill, and BOUNCE — are utilized in a tightly edited selection of essentials, featuring a hoody, track jacket, tech short and trainer. For Fall/Winter 2017, those pieces are embellished with Asian-inspired motifs, seen in all-over patterns that combine bamboo stripes and traditional dragons in acid hues of violet, tangerine, and chartreuse. A uniquely textured wooly taffeta fabric adds a modern dimension to the collection.
The Fall/Winter 2017 adidas by kolor collection will be available in stores starting in September 2017.
