As promised, adidas has announced a release date for the second part to the Yara Shahidi collaborative collection. For the second drop, the young actress and activist tackles two new shoe models along with more streetwear-meets-sportswear apparel.
Continuing to fuse her Iranian and African American heritage with 1960s design elements, the second release appears in a similar vibrant color palette with Legacy Gold, Cream White, and Dark Green leading the way. Floral graphics resembling intricate tiles further accentuate Shahidi’s ancestral roots and her overall global outlook.
Nine apparel pieces accompany this particular drop including a $60 white tee, $160 jumpsuit, $70 velvet hoodie, $100 varsity track top, $90 varsity track pants, $90 seersucker shirt, and $80 seersucker shorts with the seersucker garments appearing in two colorways.
While Yara Shahidi included the Superstar model for the first drop, she went the Boston Super x Marathon and Campus shoes for the second part. Retailing for $100, the Boston Super x Marathon combines two adidas models along with elements of Shahidi’s cultural background. Striking details include the multi-printed insole, shoelace pendate, and fishnet fabric on the midsole. The Campus shoe, retailing at $100 as well, takes a more bolder approach to design with its allover floral pattern which also occupies the insole. The Legacy Gold takes over the remaining areas of the shoe, appearing on the iconic three stripes, tongue and heel tab. The Cream White then settles out on the midsole and outsole.
adidas and Shahidi also bring back artist Duckwrth and models Andrea Thomas and Dora Owusu to lead the campaign for the second drop.
The second part to the Yara Shahidi x adidas collection is set to release on Wednesday, June 23rd at 10AM EST via the adidas CONFIRMED app.
