The ongoing Raf Simons for Adidas shoe collaboration seems to be picking up speed. For spring 2015, Simons’ beloved staples for the brand — Response Trail 2, Ozweego 2, Bounce — are expanded with new hues and fabrics; his color experiments on the Stan Smith are pushed further; he’s introduced two raver models, the Platform Strap and the Platform Lace, that illuminate with each step; and he’s interpreted the cult-adored Adilette with three extreme new versions with elevated platforms. All the racy new kicks, priced from $195 to $1,120, can be found at Adidas Icon stores in London, Paris, Berlin and select boutiques around the world beginning mid-February.
In other Raf Simons news, his fall 14 men’s collection, made in partnership with the artist and longtime collaborator Sterling Ruby, is getting its own e-store. Open only for the summer, Inthenameof.be will close September 1. After that, a clubby pop-up will launch at 16 Lange Gasthuisstraat, Antwerp, open only on weekends and rotating its merch each week through the end date of October 13.
