Following up from the “Acid Winter” pack that launched earlier this year, The Three Stripes and Union LA return again, this time through the adidas SPEZIAL line. The capsule examines the style heritage of the U.K. terrace casuals and New York’s B-Boys of the ’70s — two divergent sub-cultures from opposite sides of The Atlantic are brought together in this special take of track-suits, sneakers and tees.
Emblazoned in white over a predominantly navy textile, the words “Union Spezial Crew” is seen throughout much of the collection. The chosen font is a subtle reference to the burgeoning Hip-Hop scene at that time. Rounding out the collection is the classic adidas Garwen SPZL, an ode to the footwear styles that became widely-popular on both ends of the ocean. Two colorways. One in crisp all-white and the other in napped-suede.
