Flower Power: Adidas Originals x Farm Gazelle Trainers

About 6 months ago, I saw a picture on instagram; a preview of the Adidas Originals x Farm women's Gazelle trainers that were to be released in time for summer and I got excited. At this point you should know that I have never been a trainer person and it is only in recent years that I have not only come to understand the trainer, but enjoy it for its style and above all, comfort!

The exclusive collaboration brings together two formidable fashion brands; combining Adidas Originals iconic silhouettes and history with Farm's eye-catching signature prints,  has resulted in a pretty explosive collection. With a range of feminine and fashion forward pieces, exotic prints and a bright, punchy colour palette, the collection screams hot, tropical summer.

The collaboration is one of several which see Adidas continuing to push the boundaries of sports apparel and blur the lines between functional sportswear and fashion forward street-wear. A second Farm collection is about to be released into stores, there was recently a collection with Topshop and for AW/14 a collection with Mary Katrantzou is on the cards.

The 1970's classic Adidas shoe, the Gazelle has had a strong and vibrant make-over and although all four prints caught my eye, the green tropical flower print, with flashes of purple and orange and those lime yellow accent stripes, made my heart skip a little beat.

One of the comfiest trainers I have ever worn and now one of the most feminine, they look perfect with denim shorts and a classic white t-shirt; because when you have shoes like that, you should let them do the talking. Accessorising with a bit of a tan is optional.

The full Adidas Originals x Farm collection shorts, tracksuit, t-shirt and tank top.

This first phase will soon make way for the second drop of the Adidas Originals x Farm collection, which will continue the tropical theme with four more exotic prints in bright purple, red and a whole rainbow of colours! Check out the adidas website for the full collection.
