Closing out 2018, adidas Skateboarding partnered up with Na-Kel Smith for a special green and white 3ST.003 collaboration. Jump-starting 2019, the skateboarding arm of adidas is teaming up with Tokyo skate label Evisen for a capsule collection that’s billed as a “curated clash of east meets west.”
Aiming to give consumers “essential silhouettes for any season,” adidas Skateboarding and Evisen have combined Japanese style inspirations with tried-and-true streetwear and sportswear aesthetics. Made up of 5 new items, the aforementioned pairing’s new collaborative release revolves around a new graphic tee, a heavyweight fleece crewneck, a water-resistant “woven pique fabric jersey,” a relaxed-fit nylon track pant and a “lightweight, water repellent jacket.”
“Evisen is a skateboarding brand that I started in 2011 with my close friends,” Evisen founder, Katsumi Minami shared via an official press statement. “Our style is a combination of traditional Japanese imagery and skateboarding. All of the team are rare characters, they’re all interesting in their own way, lifestyle as well as skateboarding. For the collaboration with adidas, our art director’s idea was create a logo from sampling sake labels.”
You can take a look at adidas Skateboarding and Evisen’s new collaborative capsule collection above. For those interested in purchasing some gear from this new joint drop, expect the line to hit select adidas retailers and the official adidas Skateboarding website on January 17.
