Five all-black models with multicolored silicone bubble details will make up the capsule collection, which is to be launched worldwide starting in July. “We will have some similar projects going on this year with other designers, as well,” revealed Dirk Schönberger, creative director of the Adidas Sport Style Division, adding that would be with sneakers “and I hope also with a little bit more apparel.
