The worlds of sportswear and luxury combine in this latest high-low collaboration.

In promo shots for his new single “As It Was“, Harry Styles is wearing all his signature brands – seaside Eliou jewellery, JW Anderson and of course, Gucci – or to be more specific, a purple pair of the still unreleased Adidas x Gucci Gazelles.

While it was A$AP Rocky and Rihanna and her latex-laden bump that captured most of the attention at the Gucci fashion show in Milan in February, a long-rumoured collaboration was also confirmed and revealed – an amalgamation of the worlds of luxury and sportswear in Gucci x Adidas. Both have a recent track record in collaborations, from Adidas’ duet with Prada and Grace Wales Bonner to last year’s Gucci and Balenciaga ‘hacking.’

Gucci x Adidas is more of a high-low remix, and the collection turns both brands inside out, with Gucci suits, bags and dresses adorned in the signature three stripes to GG-monogram sportswear we’re sure to see Rihanna pushing a buggy in.

The show, called Exquisite Gucci, had notes from Alessandro Michele stating: “I use the metaphor of the magical mirror to approach the phantasmagorical power of fashion. A sacred power that radiates from the surface of the fabrics. And there I work, on this tactile surface, through cross references, alterations, loopholes and grafts. Juxtaposing worlds and meanings. Altering the stability of perception. Manipulating and magnifying the existing.”

The collection includes a Gucci reimagining of the Adidas Gazelle sneakers in multiple colourways of velvet, snakeskin, suede, leather and G-monogram iterations, with Gucci lace tips and Gucci type alongside the adidas Trefoil logo.

Stay tuned for further details on the launch date for the collection, rumoured to be summer.
