Don’t you just love fashion; the whole mish-mash of fabrics and textiles, all put together harmoniously to create something wearable? It’s such a highly debatable topic, especially with so many opinionated people in the industry. There are rules and guidelines that brands “need”, or are supposed to follow. But then again, the best ones create their own. If you think about it, you can pretty much use any kind of fabrics and textiles to create clothes. For example, Pharrell Williams with the denim made from recycled ocean plastic, COS’s women’s SS16 accessories made of compressed recycled denim or even using 3D printing machine to create clothes and accessories. For adidas Originals, they’ve opted to use reflective materials for their new “Reflective Pack” collection of watches. Just shine a bit of light on the timepiece and watch it sparkle in the dark, just like those reflective panels you see on the roads. The brand has grown from being just an iconic sports wear brand to being a go-to brand for streetwear apparel ranging from sneakers, sweatpants and jackets to accessories like bucket hats, bags and watches. adidas Originals taps into their strong sport heritage to create a modern collection that’s keeping up with the times. Featuring classic silhouettes that bear a monochrome palette with reflective materials across its dials, straps and pretty much everything else, these watches are bound to become a talking point.
adidas Originals “Reflective Pack” watches, $180-$215. Available at adidas Originals and Performance stores (Pacific Plaza #01-09 & The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands #B1-53-55). adidas.com.sg
