Opening Ceremony And Adidas Collab On Olympic-Inspired Threads



Opening Ceremony is a retail chain and gallery based in NYC, but they’re opening a store in London this year, just in time for the 2012 Olympics. They’ve teamed up with Adidas to design some hella vibrant, eye-popping threads. Check out the gallery inside.


My SLC friend Nina posted this link on her facebook and I was kind of all over it. Something about the colors really caught my eye. Here’s the announcement from Opening Ceremony’s blog:

In anticipation of the 2012 London Olympics and the opening of our first LONDON STORE, we are super excited to present our FW12 capsule collections with adidas Originals. Combining elements of swim and cycling with a 90s street attitude, the collections are an ode to Olympic sports.

Calling on playful prints—a kaleidoscopic mini-floral, a hypnotic splatter-paint motif, and the iconic bandana print of OC—the mostly unisex collection uses a range of dynamic fabrics including dry-swim spandex, neoprene, nylon twills, and reflective finishes.

Read the rest of the announcement at the site and check out the pics below. Anybody digging the blue & coral swimsuit? Me likey! If I actually went running (like some really awesome bloggers we know), I would totally use that as an excuse to cop a pair of OC running shorts. In the meantime, I just admire :)
