Adidas and Prada are starting over. The duo came together to present the latest chapter of their collaboration, this time with a focus on sustainability and the introduction of new categories.
Available January 13, the Adidas collection for Prada Re-Nylon will feature ready-to-wear, accessories and bags for the first time. These categories are in addition to the new versions of the Adidas Forum High and Low sneaker silhouettes.
According to Adidas, each piece was made in Italy by Prada, using the Italian luxury brand’s recyclable Re-Nylon fabric. This material was launched in 2019, created through the recycling of plastic waste collected in the oceans, fishing nets and textile fiber waste. It can be purified and recycled indefinitely without loss of quality.
Diving into shoe styles, Prada’s latest take on Adidas’s Forum High and Low sneakers sees the style in monochrome black and white colourways with Three Stripes leather detailing and forefoot overlays. The shoes come with a detachable Prada mini pouch featuring the Italian brand’s signature metal triangle logo.
For ready-to-wear and accessories, Prada is reworking some of its signature pieces in its Re-Nylon fabric with the addition of the Adidas brand. The collection includes a tracksuit, a sweater, a hooded jacket and a bob. Each comes in two color iterations – black with white stripes and white with black stripes.
When it comes to bags, Prada and Adidas will launch a range of six styles including a travel bag, backpack, shopping bag, shoulder strap, BP hoodie and belt bag. Each piece will feature the details of the three adidas stripes and the metallic triangular Prada logo.
This is the latest collection from both brands. Prada and Adidas announced their ongoing partnership in November 2019 when the brands posted on social media a white Prada bag with two Adidas shoe boxes protruding from the top. Since the announcement, the duo have released several sneaker collaborations, including high-end versions of the iconic Superstar shell-toe shoe as well as the sail-inspired Luna Rossa 21 shoe.
