Jeremy Scott and adidas are back in business. Scott was responsible for some of the most outrageous sneaker collaborations of the early 2010s, most of which bore the Three Stripes. With weird and wacky creations ranging from wearable teddy bears to golden-winged high tops, Scott’s creative output was divisively embraced by haters and fans alike, and nothing short of controversial. But, as he noted in a 2011 interview with SF, ‘[Fashion] should be fun, it should be something that you play with. Fashion should be... frivolous.’
A decade on, the signature mohawk-slash-pompadour is gone, but the wild streak remains via the designer’s current work as creative director of Moschino. Somehow, he’s found the time to rekindle his flame with adidas this year.
JS and adidas both took to their social media channels to announce the reunion, which is said to resume in Fall 2021, meaning there’s still a few months yet to prepare for the visual shock. Expect a full complement of sneakers, apparel and accessories likely adorned with anything from flames, wings and fur – but probably not shackles this time.
