Japanese label NEIGHBORHOOD and adidas Originals come together for a Capsule Collection to kick off the SS18 season. For this project inspiration comes from the raw, electric energy of the squads of the city of Shinsengumi combined with technical elements and original styles from both brands.
The collection is packed full of sportswear styles with NEIGHBORHOOD founder Shinsuke Takizawa’s unparalleled design perspective, a monochrome aesthetic and next-level fabrics. adidas Originals by NEIGHBORHOOD SS18 is stimulated by the Japanese label’s signature application mixing vintage and streetwear culture with a rugged attitude.
Included in the clothing line-up is a set of t-shirts, sweats, track pants and outerwear with Japanese motifs and dual-branding throughout the range. Iconic adidas Originals styles make an appearance including the Game Jersey and the Commander Sweat with shrewd alterations made exclusively for this collection. Two stand-out styles are the Raiders Track Jacket and the NH M-51 Jacket, both paying tribute to traditional motorcycling gear with a few NEIGHBORHOOD trademark touches.
Footwear-wise, we are blessed with four silhouettes including old and brand-new styles. The Gazelle Super and the I-5923 remain fairly low-key after being blacked-out and constructed using the innovative Primeknit fabric.
Opposite these two styles is the NMD_R1 and the never-seen-before Chop Shop NBHD. The NMD_R1 receives a complete overhaul with contrast stitching, saw-toothed detailing and plenty of branding throughout.
Last but by no means least is the Chop Shop NBHD. A new silhouette that has been created exclusively for this collaboration, a trainer that oozes vintage only with the added extra of modern technology including a BOOST midsole.
adidas Originals by NEIGHBORHOOD SS18 is launching at The Hip Store on 24/02/18.
Twelve months since their last collaborative effort, Japanese retailer UNITED ARROWS & SONS come together with adidas Originals for a Spring Summer ’18 Capsule Collection. As often is the case, after a bit of Archive digging, UNITED ARROWS & SONS re-work and adjust iconic sportswear styles with a distinct sartorial touch.
Fledgling Ajax sensation Kasper Dolberg models the range that’s been designed with the Japanese collage artist Kosuke Kawamura. Dominated by a selection of sportswear-inspired pieces the collaboration also sees Tokyo-based UNITED ARROWS & SONS tackle the NMD CS2 and R2 silhouette. Dual branding takes centre stage throughout that’s been fashioned through Kawamura’s signature ‘shredding’ technique for a truly unique finish.
The clothing comprises of several different styles with an urban and understated vibe including a coach jacket with EQT-style branding across the shoulder and a tailored jacket with matching bottoms. Alongside these are a handful of sportswear essentials including a soccer jersey that’s reminiscent of football kits and training tops from the 80s and 90s.
Both NMDs are bound in a marl grey upper together with reflective 3M 3-Stripe detailing, dual branding and Boost technology underfoot with the CS2 really catching our attention as one of the best collabs on this style to date.
The adidas Originals x UNITED ARROWS & SONS SS18 Capsule Collection is launching on the 20/01/18.

Turn the clock back over two decades to the early 1800s and you’d find Woolrich in its infancy, with its founder John Rich in gentler times, flogging socks to logging camps out the back of his mule cart. Fast-forward thirty years from then, and Rich was building America’s first woollen mill and before long, Woolrich becomes a household name not only in Pennsylvania but throughout the land.
Jump to the here and now and this trustworthy American label has elevated its status along with its woollens and fabrics with modern textures, dying processes and washes. After nearly two hundred years of trade, Woolrich is still loved by those with a passion for the great outdoors and those who simply appreciate exceptional quality.

adidas Originals start 2018 on the front foot introducing a brand-new silhouette to the NMD family, the NMD Racer Primeknit. Without straying too far from the original design, the NMD Racer PK is a refreshing update to a style that has been tried and tested through various colourways with multiple collaborations to its name.
The NMD Racer PK has a futuristic, racing-inspired, streamlined appearance, with a sock-like fit featuring the innovative Primeknit fabric throughout the upper with neon bursts to the outsole, midsole and heel. Like past NMDs, the midsole is packed with Adidas’ innovative Boost technology, wrapping its way around the heel with the traditional heel plug unit slightly further back from where it usually sits.
Additional features include welded 3-Stripes to the side walls, the trademark NMD heel pull and an updated racing-style Quickstrike outsole with added traction for a tighter grip with every step. What’s most striking is the vibrant, fluorescent accents of neon yellow and bright pink to the outsole that creep up onto the midsole adding an energetic colour pop to a predominately black and white trainer.
The NMD Racer PK is complete with tonal laces, a flash of neon pink to the heel tab and a velvet-crafted overlay across the heel that brings a touch of class to a sportswear silhouette. The adidas Originals NMD Racer Primeknit is coming soon to The Hip Store.
