born adidas - spring/summer 2014

adidas adidas originals born adidas spring summer 2014 womens lookbook new release

A few months ago i was lucky enough to be invited along to the s/s'14 showcase of the adidas brands collections at their press day, and ever since then i've pretty much been waiting for the products to start cropping up as the next release. the brands spring/summer lookbook for 2014 was released today and really shows off a more dark, sleeker style to the brand.

the iconic three-stripes is reinvented once again - the collection features bold fonts, prints and classic adidas silhouettes teamed with fresh new styles. the collection consists of tees, shorts, hoodies and sweats and also classic monochrome two-pieces. 

the men's range includes gorgeous printed button-down shirts and shorts with laid back styles such as college style crew necks and printed jackets. a subdued but rich colour palette for spring/summer, which eases us in nicely out the autumn/winter chill.

but! it's the women's side of the collection that i have fallen for! featuring lovely feminine silhouettes the brand have incorporated a tennis dress, shorts, two pieces, crop tops and leggings into the mix all represented beautifully by the three-stripes and soft wishy-washy grey tones. it has a super chilled california grunge/skate feel to it, perfect for that summer sun we are all starting to crave! 

as always the lookbook is executed to perfection, with all looks being something i could see myself and many of my friends dressed in. by mixing the sportswear inspired garments with streetwear pieces the looks are fashion forward and inspiring - how can you dress up your old firebird?

the whole collection will be available in the new year.

Pretty in Patta

amsterdam brand patta are by far one of my favourite brands around currently. their collections go from strength to strength each release, always keeping the quality and over all cohesiveness of the collections on point. the brand is primarily a menswear based - although certain pieces fall under being unisex.

creative directors ace dia and voilette esmeraida have shot a women's editorial featuring some iconic patta garments from their latest collections - the story which follows on from the 'girls in streetwear' concept which we are seeing more and more of, capture the feminine edge to the style.

i absolutely love the shots - mainly because i love to dress what is classed as mens streetwear garments up in the most girly way possible and it's refreshing to see the girls styled in a way i would dress myself. the styling is executed to perfection and the pastel wash photography style beautifully compliments this.
