Adidas Originals = Pharrell Williams Hu Holiday

Continuing their celebration of humanity and diversity across the globe, Pharrell Williams and adidas Originals presents a new installment of the collaborative Hu collection, founded on Pharrell’s vision of connection through love, passion, energy and color.

The new collection, entitled Hu Holiday, takes inspiration from the interplay of organic and mathematical forms that can be seen throughout nature, blending natural silhouettes with geometric designs and graphic overlays to create a fluid apparel collection with subtle stylistic touches.

In men’s, a range of classic 3-stripes designs are updated with Pharrell’s unique perspective, including tees, sweats, coaches jackets, track tops & pants, and accessories. A simple color palette is countered with crisp graphic details such as a geometric triangle motif, and all-over prints in Japanese katakana, finished with essential trefoil branding details.
