London-based label LABRUM just took to the runway at London Fashion Week, with the brand taking inspiration from various points of Black culture. As a whole, the show was an impressive one, with personalities such as Arsenal FC legend, Ian Wright, UK drill star Unknown T, and British rap legend, Wretch 32 taking center stage to celebrate the vibrancy of Black history. One key point from the show, however, was LABRUM’s all-new adidas Samba silhouette, which has now been presented in its entirety.
The new Samba subtly arrived within LABRUM’s SS24 presentation alongside the Stan Smith adiFOM Mule, dressed in a melange of different fabrications and artwork inspired by Nomoli, stone figurines found in specific parts of Sierra Leone, Guinea and Liberia.
Additionally, LABRUM’s new Samba collaboration delicately segregates various shades of dark red and brown, with solid black color blocking running around the toe cap, lateral sides, and laces. The customary Three Stripe branding is then covered in sharp shades of white, with the same hue being used across further adidas branding on the tongue and heel counter.
Taking to Instagram, LABRUM commented: “Silhouettes are drawn from the 70s migration, accentuating the shape and exaggerating the volume of the garment so that they flow. Every detail represents the hopes, dreams, and aspirations of those who have sought new horizons, leaving behind imprints of their vibrant cultural heritage.”
You can take a closer look at the LABRUM x adidas Samba collaboration above, with further release details for the sneaker expected to come soon.
