Whether you love to hate it or hate to love it, there’s no denying that Adidas and Gucci were kind of made for each other. Following their first drop in 2022, which pretty much dominated headlines across the globe, the German sportswear company and the Italian fashion house are officially back at it again for Spring/Summer 2023. And honestly? We’re not even mad.
Unlike last season’s collection, which opted for a très après-ski aesthetic, 2023’s Adidas x Gucci offering has festival-chic written all over it. Boasting a range of satin jackets, velvet tracksuits, matching shorts, crewneck sweaters, and V-neck T-shirts, every single piece is decorated with Adidas’ Trefoil motif as well as Gucci’s signature house codes. The capsule also includes a vast selection of baseball caps, bucket hats, and holdalls – perfect for those who wanna do Glasto in style.
Of course, you can’t talk about the SS23 drop without mentioning the trainer styles. With 11 in total, Harry Styles’ fave Gazelle returns in four shades including black, blue, green, and grey. It also welcomes Gucci’s first interpretation of the legendary ZX 8000, which also arrives in a quartet of colourways, one of them being a luxurious take on the OG ‘Aqua’ from ‘88. This is equipped with a silky smooth base that’s covered in the ‘GG’ monogram, as well as buttery suede overlays that wrap around the toe area, lacing system, and heel.
To round off the summer fling, the collection finishes with a trio of chunky slides that come in black, brown, and see-through makeups. There’s also a bunch of ribbed socks that are available in all shapes and sizes.
