for a retro, ‘80s-inspired collection.
The collection is inspired by both Volkova’s subculture styling ideas as well as Adidas’ archive dating back decades. It includes tracksuits, swimsuits, footwear and more. Volkova took inspiration from multiple previous Adidas designs while adding her own twist.
“The green tracksuit was inspired by the first tracksuit Adidas ever made,” Volkova explained to
“Regarding footwear, I was interested to see if Adidas has ever made a heeled shoe, and we discovered the trefoil mules that gave inspiration for the Adilette [wedge]. Also, I like a very hands-on, DIY approach, which inspired the windbreaker pieces with hardware zips applications.”
Volkova is known for styling the likes of Vetements and Balenciaga. She has also worked with Sies Marjan, Kanye West and Marc Jacobs.
The unisex collection is set to launch on Aug. 13.
