Luxury fashion house Balenciaga and adidas work in collaboration to create a special collection of men's and women's apparel and accessories. It features a line of ready-to-wear apparel, bags, shoes, jewelry, snd much more, expanding on Demna Gvasalia's creative vision.
The items were seen with a “badge of sport or trefoil logo over the name Balenciaga in the lowercase adidas typeface.” It was showcased in a Spring 2023 show and is now available globally with a focus on two sneaker models. It includes the adidas Triple S sneaker in two different colorways -- one of which nods to adidas' signature shoebox and the second in a classic black and white palette. The rest of the collection includes tees, shorts, pants, puffer jackets, tracksuits, and more.
