This collaboration is a discovery for many, since it is only very rarely that a luxury house works with a sports brand. The capsule collection was released on May 22 and will be available until May 29.
The three-stripe brand and the famous French fashion house have come together with the aim of creating a collection that is out of this world.
The collection titled “White Black” was shown to the general public during Balenciaga’s Spring 2023 show.
The Parade at the New York Stock Exchange
The French brand announced this collaboration almost unofficially.
This is not the first time that the famous German sports brand has collaborated with a luxury house. Indeed, last month, Adidas had collaborated with the Italian brand Gucci. This collection was colorful. Which is not the case for this Adidas Balenciaga collaboration.
This collection is sober, just like their way of announcing this union.
The two brands shared the news on their respective social networks. Balenciaga posted photos from the show and took the opportunity to post all the pieces in Instagram stories.
The German sports brand, for its part, simply posted in story the post of the announcement of the collaboration which refers to the Balenciaga site.
This collection, which is a capsule collection, is on sale on the Adidas website and in Balenciaga stores. It will disappear on May 29, which will give you a week to try to grab one of the pieces from the collection if you wish.
Unlike its Gucci-monogrammed Triple S sneakers, Balenciaga’s Adidas Triple S opts for a cooler vibe with a quiet white, black and gray color combination.
The luxury fashion house’s chunky sole model is then dressed in adidas’ iconic 3-Stripes to the upper and co-branded logo to the tongue and ankle tab.
The capsule collection
The latter contains sports jackets, socks and the famous Balenciaga platform shoes revisited with an Adidas touch, or even the speed trainers model to which the three stripes have been added.
The prices are very varied. The socks for example are priced at $210 while the Ye-esque hooded leather jacket is priced at $5,500.
There are many pieces that are similar to Adidas collections such as tracksuits, hoodies, jerseys and three stripe tees.
The pieces are oversized in size as Balenciaga knows how to do so well. Although the collection is entirely unisex, it sports more of a masculinized style than a feminized one.
However, some pieces may be suitable for people who want to wear a piece from the collection while being feminine. A minidress and sold at the price of 1200 dollars.
It was the Balenciaga brand that paraded the entire collection at the heart of the New York Stock Exchange on May 22. The models did not show their faces, they were all covered with a latex mask. Scary for some, futuristic for others.
If you want to grab an item from this capsule collection, you’d better hurry, because there are only a few days left before it is taken off the market!
Until when is the Balenciaga x Adidas capsule collection available?
The collection will be available until May 29 on both brands’ platforms.
What are the prices of the Balenciaga x Adidas collection?
The price range is quite varied, ranging from 120 euros for socks to 5500 euros for a leather jacket.
