Over the past weekend, adidas officially launched it’s long-awaited collaboration project with Lucasfilms’ most famous franchise, Star Wars. The launch was spread over 2 days, with Darth Vader and a brigade of Stormtroopers parading in their iconic costumes in downtown Causeway Bay and Tsim Sha Tsui, then making quick stops at the adidas Original Store to promote the entire range of products. Also part of the launch is a adidas originals x Star Wars poster collection that is designed by local Hong Kong graphic designer Dorothy Tang, a 3-D animation video created by the team at SiLLY THING, and a in-house viral video campaign aptly titled ‘Star Wars Attack in Hong Kong’ which is now live on Youtube and Facebook.
The entire collection is spread into 3 different parts: Characters Pack, Classic Scenes Pack and Vehicles Pack, and each pack contains both sneakers and clothing which is related to the theme of the pack.
- Character Pack: the design of this pack is based on the corresponding character in the movie, featuring colours and details which made that particular character iconic in the giant Star Wars universe.
- Classic Scenes Pack: re-creating famous scenes in the Star Wars universe and put them in the form of a pair of sneakers.
- Vehicles Pack: transforming all your favourite Star Wars vehicles into some of adidas’ famous sneakers.
A portion of the collection is now available at J-01, while adidas Originals Store will be releasing them on the 29th of January.
