Following the reveal of new collaborative colorways from the “SOLARHU” pack — including the “MOTH3R” NMD Hu and Tennis Hu V2 stylesPharrell and adidas Originals have now revealed the full capsule in a new lookbook. The Fall/Winter 2018 instalment of the long running collaboration takes inspiration from East Africa, with prints and colors chosen as a nod to the region.

This influence is referenced in the footwear and apparel, with the TT FZ Jacket featuring a graphic print across the chest. The jacket is a double layered, woven track top and marks the beginning of a new performance-wear aspect of Pharrell’s adidas Originals collaboration. Speaking about the dual influences of East Africa and running, Pharrell explained: “Africa is a beautiful continent and the origin of civilization. Running is a state of meditation. Why not go back to the motherland and take inspiration from such a vivid and rich culture? Why not create a tribute to this incredible sport?” The full capsule is set to drop at the adidas Originals web store, flagship locations and retailers like HBX August 18.

In related news, Jon Wexler recently teased new NMD Hu Trail colorways.
