Following on from its “Acid Winter” pack earlier this year, Gary Aspden’s adidas SPEZIAL range has joined with UNION LA on a collaborative collection. The capsule keeps in line with SPEZIAL’s focus on archive and heritage along with highlighting UK cultures in the 1980s.

UNION first opened its doors in Soho, New York back in 1989 as a store to represent and cater for the counter culture fashion youth. A few years later the UNION LA location opened and embraced the creativity of fresh designers in the city as well as keeping a eye out for upcoming brands out of Japan and the U.K.

The clothing output of the collaboration takes cues from from 80’s west coast hip-hop style and features co-branded tracksuits, crewneck sweaters, and T-Shirts. The collection is finished off with two updates of the Garwen SPZL silhouette, one that look backs at a colourway of  the 1994 adidas 350 and another that features a British premium suede upper.

The adidas SPEZIAL x UNION LA collection is online now.
