adidas Originals by Originals ‘KZK’ x CLOT “Breath Series” Superstar 80’s

A few weeks ago Edison Chen, founder and creative director of CLOT revealed on his blog the newest collaboration project with adidas and Kazuki Kuraishi on his Original by Originals line and part of CLOT’s upcoming SS10 line ‘Black Sun’.

當adidas Originals by Originals (ObyO) spring/summer 2010 collection 面世之時,CLOT亦驚喜地呈獻上由主腦人Edison Chen及Kazuki Kuraishi(倉石一樹)的kzkLOT品牌為是次ObyO特別設計的”Breath Series”  – Superstar 80’s 。

Edison說:「是次的”Breath Series”是CLOT 2010 spring/summer “BLACK SUN”系列產品之一。產品都用上網狀物料,希望為大家帶來型格之餘透氣度高又舒適的產品。我對是次的產品都十分期待,希望大家都會喜歡。」

Part of the “Breath Series”, the Superstar 80’s was designed on the request of Edison who was looking for a pair of shoes that he could wear during the hot and humid summer season in Hong Kong.

經過多次合作後,CLOT與Kazuki的合作可謂漸入佳境。以是次的kzkLOT Superstar 80’s為例,Kazuki就把Edison最喜愛的adidas鞋履特色融入其中,兩人並一起將其加以磨合及改良, 創造出另一層次的佳作。

After a extensive R&D period and refining the samples produced, they finally came up with a shoe that used a lightweight, high breathability mesh, along with Torsion Bar and Softcell technology incorporated to maximise comfort. The ‘KzKlot’ logo is also printed on the tongue and on the heel tab.

是次的Superstar 80’s巧妙地運用黑、白及金屬銀色,將adidas 的標誌性剪影以金屬銀線印在黑色網格質料上,結合真皮及絨面革,營造出不一樣的潮流觸感。而Edison更以”BREATHE”去略稱此鞋,可見鞋身的網狀物料透氣度甚高。Kazuki更謂:「製作是次kzkLOT Superstar 80’s難度十分之高,我們比平常花上更多的心思,加上多次的樣版改良後才能達到滿意的效果。」

鞋款上運用了高筒的Gipfel籃球鞋作為基礎,加上adidas為人所熟悉的Torsion Bar及Soft Cell科技,締造出具功能性之餘亦不失型格的superstar系列。

經典鞋舌上除了以復古手法刻上adidas ObyOKZK標誌外,印上“kzkLOT joint development” 標誌,極具珍藏價值。

此件難得的crossover單品在全線JUICE優先發售,一眾潮人絕對不能錯過!
