On Sept. 10, Alexander Wang ended his Spring 2017 show with a surprise announcement: A partnership with adidas Originals. Many are probably wondering where to buy adidas Originals by Alexander Wang, and information has just been released that might get you a step closer to owning pieces from the collaboration.
The campaign imagery, shot by Juergen Teller and starring Rocco Ritchie, (Madonna and Guy Ritchie's 16-year-old son), was unveiled by Vogue, but up until now, the details of how to score it have been shrouded in mystery. While it wont be easy to nab, some lucky shoppers could score nine pieces from the capsule collection as soon as today.
Harper's Bazaar reported that the first nine styles of the adidas Originals by Alexander Wang collection will be available to shop on Sept. 11, exclusively in New York City. But even if you're a New Yorker, you might not want to get your hopes up: The limited capsule collection is only available via pop-up truck. Vogue reported that the truck will be stopping at 12 p.m. at Canal and Mercer Streets; 3 p.m at 5th Avenue and 57th Street; and 6 p.m. at McCarren Park at Bedford Avenue and 12th Street.
On Sept. 17, the trucks will go international, making stops in both London and Tokyo. A full schedule of stops globally will be revealed sometime in the future. As for the rest of the collection, you can expect to shop it worldwide in stores and online in Spring 2017.
Wang spoke to Vogue about his inspiration for the collection, “With this collection, the idea was to take the codes and iconography of the adidas Originals brand and look at what their symbols mean and turn them on their head, to invert what’s on the surface and add a layer of subversion; also to toy with the idea of what’s authentic and what’s fake, and how a certain setting can change perception entirely.”
It's hard to say what the rest of the collection will look like, but for now, eager shoppers are likely scooping up what they can at the pop-up trucks, hoping to get a taste of the bigger collection to come.
