The adidas SPEZIAL collection FW17


From graffiti to yoga Goldie MBE has dedicated his life to the creation of extraordinary art. Since his burst to the graf scene 30 years ago Goldie has become a pioneering streetwear icon. Now adidas SPEZIAL FW17 cookbook featured Goldie through the length of one of the world’s most influential, creative visionaries and SHOWStudio founder, Nick Knight OBE.

Since the begining, the adidas SPEZIAL collaboration has been driven by the want to reproduce notable adidas outlines from a spotless, contemporary point of view. Drawing from essential crossroads in the brand's history, the SPEZIAL collection reinvents the adidas classic outlines, by adding  premium materials, contemporary cuts and a dynamic fashion touch to make a versatile collaboration that is characterized by the wearer's individual style.

For FW17, SPEZIAL keeps on taking motivation from adidas on-court off-court inheritance, showing a new easygoing collection with pieces that create an authentic reinvention of casual style in 2017.






For clothing, file 3-stripes outlines are brought into the SPEZIAL oeuvre through material updates and contemporary trademark details. The great bomber taken from the adidas file is reinvented into the  Abenstein Jacket through a reversible design, ultrasonic welding and PrimaLoft® protection

The Ardwick Anorak updates a vintage signature piece into an updated everyday closet staple with a weather ready ClimaStorm polyester coating and 3-stripes marked fleece-lined pockets. The Ardwick Anorak  has the same color palette - green and charcoal grey -  as the iconic adidas Ardwick SPZL shoe from the very first Spezial collection.
