The adidas Originals x SPEZIAL collection is a premium, archive inspired range curated by adidas aficionado Gary Aspden. Each piece looks to the brands rich design history as a starting point for its designs. After a tip off about a store stacked high with vintage adidas products Gary put together a team of fellow adidas fanatics to travel to Buenos Aires. Invitees were musician Ian Brown, notorious adidas collector Robert Brooks and adidas enthusiast Mike Chetcuti – whilst photographer Neil Bedford and film maker Greg Bond documented the trip. The objective was to find rare archive pieces for research purposes as well as vintage footwear to exhibit in the forthcoming SPEZIAL exhibition as part of Design Manchester 14.
