Collaboration of the Week

Adidas x The Soloist

What happens when you let Japanese brand The Soloist loose on the archives of adidas? A surprisingly nice and easy to wear collection, that's what.

The Soloist are the closest thing you'll find to a clothing cult classic. It was founded by Takahiro Miyashita, who ran another cult label Number (N)ine before he shut it down suddenly back in 2009.

He launched The Soloist a year later, carrying over all the followers who'd loved Number (N)ine. While the clothes are interesting, you'll need to be super slim to wear them (and super confident to pull off some of the items). Which is why we're pleasantly surprised that his collaboration with adidas is so pared down.

Exclusively in grey, Miyashita has reworked four styles of trainers including the Basket Profi, The Lawsuit and our favourite of the bunch, the Rod Laver (pictured).

For our money, grey is the best shade of colour you can get a winter trainer in, due to it matching well with navy, black or beige. And not showing too much wear and dirt. Just remember to mention how sad you were when Number (N)ine shut down in 2009 if a Miyashita superfan accosts you in the street.
