Jackets and Parkas Combine adidas’ Contemporary Fashion Approach and adidas Outdoor’s Performance Attributes
LOS ANGELES (Jan. 10, 2017) – adidas Outdoor, the athletic brand in the outdoors, announces the launch of its urban outerwear, street fashion collection including parkas and jackets for men and women, featuring distinct combinations of thermal insulations and fleeces wrapped up in contemporary silhouettes and feminine style lines. The line, designed to excel in outdoor urban settings, blends adidas’ modern flair with outdoor performance materials resulting in a sleek, street-style look. This new collection will be introduced at Outdoor Retailer Winter Market in Salt Lake City, Jan. 10 – 12, and available at retail next fall.
“There is a growing demand from outdoor enthusiasts for outerwear that easily transitions from a day on the trail to a night in the city,” said Greg Thomsen, managing director, adidas Outdoor U.S. “With this collection, our designers have successfully created a versatile line that embodies the best attributes of outdoor performance technologies and trending tastes seen around the globe, in cities known for their fashion prowess. This new look will not only appeal to existing fans of adidas, but also, introduce more consumers to the brand who are discovering their love for the outdoors, just steps outside their apartment or in their favorite city park. This assortment will be as much at home in New York City as it will be in Denver, San Francisco or L.A. and it provides consumers with an option currently available on the market.”
