Alexander Wang will make his way to Coachella on Friday (13Apr18) with a “van full” of his new Adidas Originals collection.
The California native is driving from Los Angeles to Palm Springs with his model pals Binx Walton, Lexi Boling, Hanne Gaby Odiele and Cat McNeil. The super stylish group will be keeping fans updated with their antics via the @AdidasOriginals Twitter account and using the hashtag WangFest journey.
“Tomorrow, the #Wangsquad will beg, borrow, and trade all the way to the festival,” Wang told his Instagram followers next to a video clip detailing the journey.
“Making our way to Palm Springs tomorrow with a van full of the new #adidasOriginalsxAW collection. Stay tuned to our insta story and @AdidasOriginals to follow our journey.”
The video is a clip of a car driving across the Californian desert, and words flash up explaining the squad will be,“trading the new collection for food, gas, for favours”.
The line marks Wang’s third Adidas collection. He first joined forces with the sportswear giant in 2016, and brought out season two last year.
For his third effort, the high-end designer was inspired by factory rejects and quality control. The 13-piece collection is made up of jackets, track-style tops, shorts, crew neck sweatshirts, graphic tees and transparent ponchos, with the garments all featuring a flaw of some kind, like uneven printing, wrinkled fabrics and pixelated graphics.
Along with the clothes, Wang has also created his version of Adidas’ football shoe, which he’s called the AW Bball Soccer.
Adidas Originals x Alexander Wang season three will be available in store and online from 21 April.
