Pharrell Williams and adidas are a winning combination and the duo are set to release a brand new NMD Hu collaboration in the Fall.
A follow-up to the highly successful “Powder Dye” collection in celebration of India’s Holi Festival, the “Afro Hu” pays tribute to the African continent, the home of human civilisation.
The three-piece collection will feature Afro-centric design cues and is particularly evident in its colour combinations. Close-up images of one of the three surfaced online in low-key fashion back in February, giving us a taste of what’s the come in the second half of the year.
From the shots, its clear that tribal motifs play a huge part of the aesthetics, alongside the clever use of African beads on the heel tab.
The shoe’s collar also features coloured dots to mimic the look of ankle bead bracelets from afar, adding on to the African theme.
In addition to this up-close images, photos from @presentedby gives us a decent side profile of the two remaining pairs.
