Founded in 1949, Adidas have been committed to combining sports and culture to inspire and champion change, through various collaborations. This time they have joined the streetwear giant Maharishi and iconic London football club Arsenal to create a limited edition capsule collection.
The collection features pieces designed for on and off the pitch, including a pre-match jersey, shorts and socks, adidas GORE-TEX jacket, hooded sweat and pants. As part of infusing the utilitarian style that Maharishi is known for with Adidas’ signature of performance focused pieces, a bespoke camouflage pattern was designed for this collection. The pattern; DPM: Bonsai Dragon Scales was inspired by the forthcoming Lunar Year of the Dragon, in line with Maharishi’s unique design signatures, a blend of Eastern and Western influences and using camouflage to represent nature, art and pacifism.
The range will also be endorsed by Arsenal men’s and women’s teams and has already been seen on the men’s team as they warmed up for their game against Sheffield United at Emirates Stadium on Saturday.
The energy of London is in the foundation of both Arsenal and Maharishi, so when paired with Adidas who have a focus on supporting both culture icons within and outside of football; this collection is an exemplary example of bringing the best out of each other and creating highly covetable pieces in the process. The Gore-Tex jacket is already fast becoming a favourite.
The extremely limited collection launched on Friday 27th and is available to shop now from adidas.co.uk, adidas stores, Arsenal club stores and Arsenal Direct, Maharishi and other selected retailers.
