You know how you are always nervous when your fave show is about to go into Season 2 because Season 1 was so awesome that you think, how can it be even more awesome! That’s how I felt waiting for the next round of Mary Katrantzou x adidas Originals collab. But my fear was totally unfounded. I am in love of first sight with Mary Katrantzou x adidas Originals Season 2. Inspired by 80’s sportswear and Olympic memorabilia I think it is actually much better than the first line released for the iconic German sportswear brand. I feel it is more true to the adidas originals spirit while it really captures the beauty, essence and tech innovation of Mary Katrantzou’s prints. Sweating has never been so stylish!
