Adidas and Alexander Wang Are Dropping the Vintage-Inspired Gear You'll Wear All Spring

Tracksuits and sneakers should know no gender. At least not if Alexander Wang and Adidas Originals have anything to say about it. Dropping this Wednesday is part two of the pair's popular collaboration, which includes tracksuits, tees, shorts, and footwear, all of which is unisex and features Adidas Originals' iconic trefoil logo flipped upside down.
Called the Flip Pack, the purpose of the upside-down logo is to symbolize the fact that, with this collection, both Wang and Adidas refuse to adhere to the rules—when it comes to gender, branding, or anything else. With fourteen pieces on offer this time around, the unisex tracksuits, tees, and shorts will be available in a Tricot material in black, dark indigo, and maroon. The sneakers—both the Run and the Run Clean—feature Boost soles as well as signature Originals innovations like stretch mesh, Primeknit, and an elastic lacing system.
For the campaign, Wang and Adidas drafted legendary lensman Juergen Teller, who shot a lookbook featuring Rocco Ritchie, Lexi Boling, Hanne Gaby Odiele, and Binx Walton, as well as Luke Storey and Chris Fernandez. Shot on the streets of New York City, the series shows models hauling around piles of clothes and sneakers in a nod to youth reseller culture.
The collection hits stores March 1, and will be available at Barneys (New York), Colette (Paris), Antonioli (Milan), Storm (Copenhagen), Dover Street Market (Ginza), Boon the Shop (Seoul), and Joyce (Hong Kong). That first drop will be followed by a second release on March 4 at select Adidas Originals and Alexander Wang flagship locations and online at adidas.com/originals and alexanderwang.com.
