If you’re tired of reading about Madonna’s half-time show, M.I.A. flipping the bird or anything Super Bowl-related, then this isn’t the post for you. But if you loved the tracksuits Madge’s breakers were sporting, then you’ve come to the right place. During Madonna’s “Music” segment, her backup dancers wore these wicked white track suits with music note details. They looked familiar but I couldn’t place them until I did some research. The athletic gear were part of Jeremy Scott’s collection for adidas Originals Spring/Summer 2012 line.
Scott has collaborated with adidas for several seasons now, but his most recent is probably his best, IMHO. While it’s still too daring and bold for most consumers, it has a few wearable pieces for those wanting to take a fashion risk but not look like they’re heading to perform a gig. Sporting a cohesive theme for the first time, the pieces have an Americana and musical theme with a flashes of cowboy accents and animal-inspired prints. All and all, if Elvis Presley were kickin’ around today, I can totally see him rockin’ out a few of Scott’s pieces.
“the collection pays tribute to American pop culture and brings a little jungle flavor to the urban scene and dresses the now ubiquitous wings in stars and stripes.”
Check out the adidas Originals by Jeremy Scott Collection’s Spring/Summer 2012 look book featuring Mexican male model Jorge Villarreal below. My personal fave, along with the white music note track suit, is the gold winged tasseled jacket. I can’t think of a place to wear it, but I LOVE it.
