Adidas releases new Japanese collection by artist Hiroko Takahashi, featuring yukata, sneakers and more
One of the perks of shopping in Japan is that many international labels partner with local designers and artists to release exclusive collections that you won’t find anywhere else. One of these brands is Adidas, who has published numerous limited edition collections, the most recent being the ukiyo-e sneakers designed by Osaka tattoo artist Ukiyoemon.
Now the sportswear brand has released another Japanese-inspired collection just in time for summer with a renowned artist. Hiroko takahashi. The collaboration, now available in store and online, features the bold prints of Takahashi’s signature on a happy jacket, yukata (summer kimono), child jinbei set, sneakers, T-shirts, sweat jackets and more. Here are some of the highlights of the collection.
One of the key pieces of the collaboration is the graphic happy jacket (8,789) for men, which comes in two color combinations: black and white or blue and white. The jacket features classic kimono-style sleeves and is made from an Adidas Aeroready fabric that wicks up sweat and helps you cool off.
Female players yukata (8,789) is a version of a traditional summer kimono. It is also available in the same colors as the happy jacket. This longer wrap dress is partially made from recycled polyester and also includes Adidas Aeroready fabric to help keep you dry and cool in hot weather.
There is also something for the children. The collection also includes a unisex jinbei set (7,689) comprising a jacket and kimono-style shorts. They are both made from the same Aeroready cooling material.
Takahashi also put his twist on the classic Adidas Superstar sneakers (¥ 14,300). The White pair features the bold circular print in black on the sole and toe cap.
The collection also gave the Ultraboost sneakers (22,000) a similar makeover. It features a black knit body with a black and white printed sole.
