Pharrell's new Adidas collection dropping later this month draws on inspiration from East Africa.
Adidas has today introduced official images for Pharrell's upcoming "SolarHU" Collection, which includes three versions of the Adidas NMD Hu, two colorways of the Tennis Hu V2, and a SOLARHU TT FZ jacket.
The Pharrell x Adidas NMD HU consists of three equally colorful NMD Hu Trail models, each of which features a tribal design throughout, as well as individual messages displayed from ankle to toe, similar to many Pharrell x Adidas NMDs of old. One of the sneakers, dressed in red, black and red has "3MPOW3R" aka EMPOWER etched on the upper. The other NMD HU Trail boasts a teal, orange and purple color scheme and reads, "M1L3L3" which translates to forever in Swahili, while the third comes in pink, grey, blue and yellow with "MOTH3R" on the upper.
Meanwhile, the Pharrell x Adidas Tennis HU V2 features a new suede overlay and leatherized lacing system.
The Pharrell x Adidas SolarHU collection will release on August 18. The NMD Hu Trails will retail for $250, the Tennis HU V2 is priced at $130, and the jacket will reportedly retail for $200.
