Designed by musician and fashion designer Pharrell Williams in collaboration with Adidas, the Solar Hu collection showcases brightly colored athletic clothing and sneakers that take influence from East African flags. The collection is fairly limited in items, consisting of just a single style of trainer and eight pieces of clothing but each of the items in the collection is sure to immediately catch the eye of any athletic wear aficionado.
The decision to draw on the flags of East Africa came from William's observation of the continent as "beautiful" and "the origin of civilization." All of the pieces in the collection focus on gear for runners as the Solar Hu collection honors the history of long-distance running in the region. The Solar Hu collection also serves as a tool to celebrate the fact that we are all connected.
