After a brief hiatus, Stan Smith is back, better than ever. Consortium’s first Stan Smith Materials pack adhered to the shoe’s original white and green heritage and focused on premium leathers and textures. For SS14, adidas has teamed up with five designers from Asia for the Consortium Stan Smith Collaboration Pack, each contributing their unique point-of-view on the iconic sneaker model.
Tokyo-based product designer Shigeki Fujishiro expresses his fascination for spatial relationships in this distinct design, Stan Smith PLAY. While the leather upper is kept in minimalist white, coloured string has been woven to create graphic shapes on each side of the shoe, integrating the perforated 3-Stripes from the original silhouette. The tongue is emblazoned with the ‘Endorsed by Stan Smith’ logo in a tonal grey glossy stamp, while a simple ‘STAN SMITH PLAY’ callout sits along the side panel.
Stan Smith PLAY is available in limited quantities from March 8 at No.6 London, No.42 Paris, No.74 Berlin and selected Consortium retailers.
