What You Need To Know About The Retro-Themed Adidas x Gucci Collection


Do you love anything that’s retro and sporty? These are the pieces that you must add to your wardrobe.

With the recent debut of the first Adidas x Gucci collection on the Exquisite Gucci runway, we see a dynamic infusion of historical and contemporary styles that redefine sportswear and streetwear as we know it. 

Inspired by the archival 1979 Adidas catalogue, Alessandro Michele mixed signature silhouettes with creative codes taken from the sportswear brand and the House, undoubtedly creating a new and distinct style. Though the collection may seem daunting at first glance, Michele constructed it in a manner that combined nostalgia and recreation. Variations of stripes play out across ready-to-wear pieces and energetic prints, like the adidas Trefoil and GG monogram merged together to amplify two legacies. These prints echo through the silhouettes of athletic staples and leisurewear.

While it embraces the past, the collection also aims for innovation, progress, and sustainability. The pieces are crafted with future-conscious materials, such as polyester, cotton, and viscose. It’s truly a beautiful way to merge the past and future.

Modern Tracksuits

In true Gucci fashion, a defining theme of the collection is to mix and match the pieces. Reimagined to be used in multiple ways—shorts and jogger pants for women, or flared pants and a bowling shirt for men—it’s a modern collection that has no limits.

Printed Dynamic Leisurewear 

For those who are looking for pieces that have a more sophisticated vibe, the collection offers a wide range of options, from tennis-inspired polos, to sweater vests, skirts, and knit dresses. With colorful and energetic prints that display the adidas Trefoil and Interlocking G, these are surely the statement pieces you need to add to your collection.

Hybridized Bags

Retro-inspired bags enter hybridized territory throughout the collection. Beloved lines from Gucci, such as the Gucci Horsebit 1955 crossbody and tote, are reimagined with the adidas Trefoil. Offered in red, yellow, and, black leather, the colorful collection includes the House’s GG Supreme canvas and retro prints. These retro-sporty bags will surely elevate your everyday outfit.

Printed Footwear

The line offers a shoe collection that consists of new interpretations. With Gucci’s recreation of the famous adidas Gazelle sneakers and Horsebit loafers, presented with the red and green Web accented by the Three Stripes, the collection becomes uniquely retro, and a must-have in your closet.
