Did Adidas Just Drop Another Designer Collab?

Another one to add to the wish list.

Short answer: yes. During the Balenciaga Spring '23 runway show, what did we see sauntering down the catwalk? No, surprisingly not a member of the Kardashian clan, but another designer adidas collab.

Rumours of Balenciaga / adidas started back in March when the sportswear super brand took on the Balenciaga Triple S sneaker. This went some what under the radar it seems. But now, lo and behold, we've got the full collection. The collaboration, which features an adidas take on the Balenciaga Speed trainer, super slouched and oversized tracksuits, logo t-shirts and even socks, is pure street style catnip - and already a guaranteed sell out.

Not one for doing things by half, creative director Demna Gvasalia took over the New York Stock Exchange for the first Balenciaga show to take place in the US. Unsurprisingly the front row brought with it plenty of talking points. Anna Wintour and Christine Quinn as surprising FROW besties, anyone? There's the power couple you never knew you needed, but definitely do.

All in attendance? Newlywed Chloë Sevigny, who looked ever the icon in head to toe florals, and her husband Siniša Mačković, who packed in a PDA before heading inside to watch the show. Supermodel Candice Swanpoel gave a lesson in how to wear a tracksuit, while Megan Thee Stallion looked every inch the superstar in a floor-skimming black coat, knee-high boots and full bodycon.

FROW aside, let's talk Balenciaga / adidas and everything you need to know...

When did the collaboration drop?

Never one to opt for understated, Balenciaga / adidas appeared, seemingly without warning, during Demna's Balenciaga Spring '23 catwalk show which took place Sunday 22nd May inside the New York Stock Exchange.
