"Adidas is the creator's brand and has always championed the creative mindset," says Torben Schumacher, general manager, Adidas Originals and Style. "With Beyoncé we have the shared goal of putting creativity at the forefront of everything we do to go beyond what we've done before and create something entirely new.”
The Adidas x IVY PARK collection is the first launch since Beyoncé became the sole owner of the IVY PARK brand. She took over ownership of the brand last year from Parkwood Topshop Athletic.
"It is a dream come true to re-launch IVY PARK as the sole owner," says Beyoncé. "My team has worked hard with the adidas team in bringing my vision to life for this first collection and I am grateful and proud. From the accessories to the clothes and footwear, I wanted to design and re-imagine pieces that serve as favorite armor for anyone who acknowledges the strength in their individual style and lives freely and boldly."
