In celebration of 30 years of ‘The Second Summer of Love’ - adidas takes a trip from the UK to Ibiza, exploring a time when raves were about free spirit, all-night acid house raves and less EDM. To ring in the 4 th SPEZIAL collection, adidas pays homage to the British rave-culture and its unlimited freedom on the White Isle. The footwork as well as clothing that went hand-in- hand with the subcultural movement`s early days of acid house music is now being payed homage to by adidas and the SPEZIAL project curators.
Both dig deep in their archives to find the right models to reinterpret a time of epicurean freedom. The uniform back then was dictated by comfort as well as practicability and this collection brings all the old-school adidas spirit back from the archives with modern-day details and a fresh take for the youth of today.
To honour the collection, Sneakersnstuff have compiled a playlist below, to take you back to that special moment in time. The Second Summer of Love.
