Look Into Rita Ora’s “Kimono-inspired” Adidas Spring 2016 Collection
Adidas welcomes the kimono!
Originally released on February 6th, Rita Ora, British singer, actress, host, and now fashion designer has teamed up with adidas Originals to give us the Japanese kimono-inspired collection. Interestingly, the kimono’s roots represent traditional apparel in Japan and are considered “polite” and “very formal clothing.” However with this collection, we imagine the historical Japanese Geisha as a trendsetter!
Rita’s twist combines Japan’s kimono artwork and design such that of floral prints, abstract birds, and nature with everyday wear and workout gear. The collection includes poncho-ed kimonos, leggings, track jackets, tanks, and of course- sneakers. Elements of a silky texture are present which proposes a possible traditional Chinese Hanfu-influence as well!
Looks like everyone had the common interest of traditional meets modern because majority of the line is sold out! Click below to grab your last minute leggings!
