Time to start planning your shopping list for the sporty collaboration, launching on June 7

We’re not sure what took Gucci and Adidas so long to collaborate, but when they finally did for the former’s Fall/Winter 2022 collection, it was a winning combination.

Gucci designer Alessandro Michele once again drew inspiration from his favourite decade, the 1970s, to create an array of retro sportswear pieces for men and women.

Tracksuits, tennis sweaters and polo shirts come in bright colours and feature a special logo combining Gucci’s name and Adidas’ Trefoil emblem.

Other pieces, like knitted crop tops, bowling shirts, bomber jackets and shorts stand out thanks to a geometric pattern that marry Adidas’ Trefoil logo with Gucci’s Interlocking GG motif. The striking pattern is also seen across golf bags, crossbody bags, and bucket hats.

The ‘70s was also known for its excellent tailoring, and you can see hints of it in unexpected athleisure pieces like flared track pants bearing Gucci’s signature green-and-red Web Stripe and Adidas’ Three Stripes, as well as collared shirts that feature a subtle monogram with both Gucci and Adidas logos.

What’s an Adidas collaboration without some of its signature sneakers in the mix? Gucci took on the sportswear brand’s Gazelle sneakers, loved by celebrities like Kristen Stewart and Kate Moss, and injected it with vibrance via new colourways and even rainbow platforms.

Other noteworthy footwear silhouettes from the collaboration include branded clogs, terrycloth slides, leather pumps, and new iterations of the Gucci’s Horsebit loafers in leather and suede.

On the accessories front, we expect to see those monogram bucket hats and caps crafted from sustainable Econyl becoming a must-have accessory this summer. Gucci and Adidas might even successfully bring back sporty headbands with their logo versions.

Below, take a look at the Gucci x Adidas collection in all of its retro, sporty glory ahead of its release on June 7. You can keep an eye out for the launch, which will be done across Gucci stores and pop-ups around the world, with some pieces being made available on the Gucci website and Adidas’ Confirmed app.
