UNITED ARROWS & SONS rejoins adidas Originals for another range of elevated sportswear stylings. For Fall/Winter 2018, the duo teamed up with graffiti artist and burger connoisseur WANTO to create playfully reimagined logos and referential graphics.

Executed across a variety of sweaters and leather-sleeved varsity jackets, the imagery draws inspiration from B-Boys, hip-hop music and street art, with jacquard-printed cityscapes and verbiage like “LIVING PROOF” recalling spray-painted murals. Matching sweatpants and tracksuits further emphasize the retro influence with contrasting panels, while a hooded coat takes a more subtle approach with all-over-printed tonal logos. A pair of collaborative sneakers round out the drop, yielding a Rivalry Lo and Ultra Star with Italian leather detailing, printed with a snakeskin pattern for a louche upgrade. WANTO’s adidas illustrations appear on the tongues, while the Ultra Star updates the classic silhouette with a breathable Primeknit upper.

Already available on the Japanese adidas site, the adidas Originals by United Arrows & Sons Fall/Winter 2018 range arrives stateside on August 25. Check out some of WANTO’s work below.

Elsewhere, UNITED ARROWS & SONS’s Poggy joined Levi’s for elevated cold weather workwear.
