It was in late 2012 that I declared I would live in sweatpants if I could. In 2015, I still standby my love for sweatpants – I guess I have normcore fever to thank for people’s tolerance of my excessive sweatpants-wearing habit.
So it’s only natural that other than dubbing myself the oriental princess, I’m also the champion of sportswear as RTW. While I wouldn’t go as far as to call it Sports Luxe (let’s get real, we aren’t talking Chanel sweats here), I for one appreciate the beauty of pairing sweatpants with crop tops or an oversized tee with running shorts. And of course, there’s my sneaker collection, which is another story to tell.
In a week’s time, TOPSHOP marks the return of its successful collaboration with ADIDAS ORIGINALS – which I’m super excited about. This seven-piece collection (“Why only seven?!” was the question I posed to a friend who works for Topshop), is an exclusive capsule of essential staples and marries Topshop’s high street sensibility with Adidas’ rich sport heritage. The result is a simple monochromatic collection of ADIDAS ORIGINALS’ classics such as the SUPERSTAR jacket, shoes, striped sweatpants and logo tee, punctuated with flashes of bold red reminiscent of the glorious ’80s hip hop days.
The Plastics (I couldn’t resist a Mean Girls reference) are so gonna eat their words when this collection hits stores, because if you’re gonna be decked out in this range for seven days a week, you can totes sit with us (Team Wanderland).
The TOPSHOP X ADIDAS ORIGINALS collection launches globally on April 30 and will be available throughout TOPSHOP UK, US and International stores, www.topshop.com, adidas.com/originals, and ADIDAS ORIGINALS stores. Prices range from $69.90 to $403.
