‘adidas by tom dixon’ brings together a collaboration between the sportswear brand and  tom dixon— a celebration of mobility, modularity and the 21st century lifestyle. the range of garments, accessories and footwear are making their debut at MOST as part of the fuori salone programme of milan design week, where they are being presented in an experimental factory installation (created by design research studio) within a reconstructed 19th century railway station–the setting complimenting the utilitarian qualitiesand aesthetics of the pieces dixon has designed.

 

reflecting adidas‘ forward-thinking technologies combined with the british industrial designer’s inventive style, the collection explores the sports world’s expertise in performance and innovation expressed through dixon’s honest use of materials and selvage aesthetic. in this, the first installment of a two-year partnership with adidas, dixon has developed an extensive bodyof apparel which includes: padded parkas that convert into sleeping bags, ‘ultralite’ hoodies which can be zipped into small pouches during travel, and a modular five-in-one design the converts to a coat, jacket, pant, skirt or short. while accompanying accessories double and triple function as duffle bags which convert into suitcases; and garment bags which transform into backpacks, a depiction of the future of sport style.

 

the 20 piece ‘adidas by tom dixon’ collection will be globally available from mid november 2013.
