Officially launching January 15, adidas and Stella McCartney are expanding their partnership and introducing StellaSport, a junior-focused fitness line with the sleek aesthetic you’ve come to know from Stella. Think the Selena Gomez-approved NEO line meets adidas by Stella McCartney, to be exact. The brand promises the usual intention of mixing gym-to-street styles for an effortless transition throughout your day and also lists “self-lacing” sneakers (!) in its mix. Peek the look book below.
This is a PSA for Father’s Day, which is this upcoming Sunday should you be behind. If your dad is like mine, then the official World Cup match ball is the perfect gift. Easy. Done. This year’s model, the Brazuca, is super nice and has a unique texture unlike previous WC balls. It also feels considerably more solid than say the 2006 +Teamgeist. Get it here!
Also, here’s a bonus video from Paul Smith, who created his own limited edition World Cup ball. Sold out, unfortunately.
First and foremost, I apologize if this turns into a World Cup blog temporarily. I will do my best to have some restraint from posting all things soccer.
That said, I love the World Cup and all the anticipation that comes with it. Besides the usual WC gear that comes around every four years, it’s the new and unexpected collections and collaborations that I enjoy the most. adidas’ Skate Copa presents a capsule of national decks for their team riders featuring classic and clean graphics. Do you have a favorite?
As we’re in the midst of the back-to-school season, primary colors are popping up everywhere, fittingly so. (Not that anyone buys workout gear for class though.) Anyway, I love the classic combo of yellow, blue, and red, especially with the variety of hues available on the market. What’s your favorite?
+ Nothing to report here since it was a tight weekend shared with my family, but how indecisive is this weather? First we had this, now it’s rolling through the 70s.
+ How sweet are these Sandlot tees from The Forest Lab?
+ Raf Simons for adidas is headed our way. Doesn’t seem like we’ll be running short on collabs for a while.
+ So, we’re in for a Harbaugh Bro Super Bowl, Hockey’s back, and the Lakers are still ripping my heart. Sounds about right.
