Watch a new adidas fashion film exclusively on SHOWstudio!
To celebrate the launch of the S/S 15 adidas Originals x SPEZIAL collection, we’re proud to present a new short film by Nick Griffiths and &SON Films. Inspired by SPEZIAL curator Gary Aspden’s own journey into adidas' archives (his starting point for the design of the range), the film tells the story of a fan’s trip from Munich to the house where Adi Dassler once lived.
‘For adidas fans there has always been a romanticism around the brand’s birthplace in Herzogenaurach,’ explained Aspden. ‘A young man on a homage to Adi’s villa reflects the ideology behind the adidas Originals x SPEZIAL range. A new generation inspired by the foundations of this sportswear institution.’
Shot on location between Munich and Herzogenaurach, the film’s haunting score is by Atticus Ross, the Academy Award-winning composer behind the music of Gone Girl, The Social Network and The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.
Watch the film now, and be sure to revisit adidas’ previous celebration of sportswear obsession, Sole Searching in South America.
