In delivering a slice of the European identity that encompasses adidas Originals, the SS16 SPEZIAL collection takes in the French Riviera for a cultured lookbook and short film.

A range that is forever redefining contemporary classics while re-imagining a legacy of leisure, the SS16 SPEZIAL collection adds a healthy dose of warmth to the lifestyle game. Idyllic seascapes and pure living, it's another lookbook and short film that encourages open-minded, free thinking. Whether terrace trodden or weathered from the wind, there's respect from all angles that is sewn into each garment.

From the Lytham Tracksuit to the Chilcott Smock, it's a collection of varied proportions all being served up from the top table. Tasteful and triumphant and dedicated to design, the Beckenbauer tracksuit continues an influence from the football world. A first glimpse at a collection that will enter a timeless place, it's well worn all round. The film itself, a collaboration of many, led by Gary Aspden and &SON is a subtle celebration of contintental culture.

The adidas SPEZIAL SS16 collection launches 19th March 2016 online and in selected retailers.
