After an Indian-inspired “Powder Dye” pack in conjunction with Holi Festival, Pharrell Williams and adidas are turning to another Asian powerhouse as its latest muse.
Taking inspiration from the concept of Yin and Yang, the upcoming NMD Hu collection features four colour options, each representing the four natural elements of metal (Jin), fire (Huo), wood (Mu), and water (Shui).
In line with Pharrell’s goal of promoting peace and love with his Human Race brand, each of the pairs will feature one of the words “Happy,” “Peace,” “Passion,” and “Youth” on the right side of the pair, with the left taking on the Chinese equivalent.
adidas revealed the inspiration behind the sneaker pack along with official product shots against beautiful backdrops.
The pack is expected to be exclusive to China, with the Gold colourway limited to only 300 pairs and reserved for friends and family.
