Up Close: Youth of Paris x adidas Campus 80s
Team Trefoil continue to stay busy on the collaborative front, recently tapping the likes of reggaeton superstar Bad Bunny for the Forum, while also poaching Jerry Lorenzo for their basketball division.
Alex Lopez’s Youth of Paris are the latest to link up with adidas Originals, the French label putting their own signature touch on a classic from the adi archive: the ,Campus 80s.
Using distressed denim, Lopez has opted for a punk-rock/metal aesthetic emblazoned by haphazard stitching and mismatched materials uppers. Impressionistic purple stitching extends the boisterous DNA of the collaboration, while Youth of Paris street-art style branding on the tongues again reinforces the gaudy partnership.
Three sets of laces (green, black and purple) come with a Specimen ID tag, while special packaging provides something a little extra for collectors.
Look for the Youth of Paris x adidas Campus 80s to release later this year via the Youth of Paris webstore.
