From Americana to anarcho-punk, legendary designer and polymath Raf Simons holds a host of influences in his work, whether for his own fashion line or in his long-running collaboration with adidas. This season, Simons draws on the aesthetics of 70s glam rock for the newest iteration of the adidas by Raf Simons Detroit Runner, drenching the silhouette in unexpected colour combinations.
Already steeped in glam-rock’s futurist aesthetic, the Detroit Runner is elevated this season with striking colour-ups that are a stark departure from the tonal approach of previous seasons. One pair is swathed in the acidic colour palette of the era, with a black base offset by bold red and lime green to the futuristic sole unit, while the other is more sober, coming in a monochrome make-up. Both pairs are completed with the designer’s signature RS lettering to the canvas uppers, this time offered in a mirrored finish for an extra 70s touch.
Both pairs of the adidas x Raf Simons Detroit Runner Sneaker will be available in-store and online at Aphrodite Clothing from 14th March at 10.00 GMT. Numbers are, as usual, strictly limited, so make sure to keep an eye on our social media channels for further launch info.
