A Closer Look at the Pharrell Williams x adidas Originals “Hu” Collection

19 unique pieces spanning apparel and footwear.

Not too long ago, Pharrell Williams and adidas Originals debuted their “Hu” collection for 2016 fall/winter. The latest range was beautifully portrayed in a campaign video that was captured in various locations across the globe — detailing a bevy of cultures as a way to remind viewers of the “spirit of equality, acceptance, co-existence and understanding” necessary for the “Human Race” to strive and prosper. The entire lineup consists of 19 pieces: five unique takes on footwear and 14 pieces of apparel products.

Hot on the heels of the yellow NMD trainer that was unveiled this past July, the footwear range sees the following new colorways: scarlet, deep black, sharpe blue, light green and tangerine. Each shoe boasts adidas Primeknit uppers, BOOST midsoles and innovative lacing systems, coupled with their own “Hu Race” insignias. For apparel, standout pieces include a full-zip jacket and half-zip anorak that are made of fully reflective woven outerwear material, Velcro side fasteners and packable hoods.

Take a look at the visuals above and expect a worldwide launch for the adidas Originals = PHARRELL WILLIAMS Hu collection on September 29.
