Revered as much for his musical talents as he is for his contributions to the art world and fashion, Pharrell Williams has teamed up with adidas Originals to produce the highly anticipated ‘Solid’ Pack.
Melding the sportswear aesthetic of the German sportswear giant and Pharrell’s considered eye for colour and distinctive look, the collection infuses iconic pieces with the playful, dynamic energy featuring bright colour and pop art details, bringing a youthful exuberance to sophisticated luxury.
The ‘Solid’ Pack incorporates two signature three-stripe styles that have been reworked to ingenious simplistic aplomb. Constructed in Germany, the Leather Tracktop takes the archival shape of the classic Superstar Tracktop with its bomber collar and welted pockets and upgrades it with boldly coloured Nappa Leather. Available in Red, Bluebird and Black, the jacket recut to a more contemporary silhouette and is finished with contrast Nappa Leather three-stripe detail to the arms, eschewing the standard embroidered trefoil to the chest for a more luxury unbranded piece.
The premium jacket is joined by a reimagination of adidas’ sneaker-de-jour; the Stan Smith. His take on the classic tennis shoe in bold monochrome tones that complement the Tracktop are a dead cert for an unmissable street style look. Constructed with a full grain leather upper and a matching rubber outsole and Pharrell adds a touch of character with details to the heel and footbed.
The adidas Consortium x Pharrell Williams ‘Solid’ Pack is available now at select three stripes accounts worlwide.
