KNOTORYUS BEST + WHERE TO BUY RAF SIMONS x ADIDAS ORIGINALS FW16
Now that everybody can stop pretending to have been super shook when it was announced by Calvin Klein that “Raf Simons signed on as Chief Creative Officer of E-Ve-Ry-Thing bih what? Yes that also means he gets to head the Global Marketing Department and that hot mess of a Calvin Klein jewellery division. And let me specifically add, hoe, that nobody and I really mean not a goddamn person during their entire time here will attempt to talk smack to or will try Pieter Mulier in any kind of way blink twice if you understand. Now let’s work.”*- we can let the master do his thing and for now focus on his FW2016 drops.
First on our list: all the releases from the Raf Simons x adidas Originals collection which boasts two new models. One new pack is the “adidas by Raf Simons Matrix Spirit” which includes high and low tops in four different colour ways.
The first batch is available here.
This is the adidas by Raf Simons “Stan Smith Comfort” and it will be available in seven colour combinations.
Other faves. ^^
And last but obviously necessary, the wildly popular Raf Simons version of the “Stan Smith” in white on white, red on red and black on a gum sole.
*if you want to read the actual Calvin Klein press release go here, but I know that the above interpretation is what had actually happened.
*I think we all know that Rihanna comes down to wherever to read milestone RS press releases out loud.
*I also know that I have been listening to way too many episodes of “The Read” (top podcast tip and if you’re not familiar and a huge Swiftie like I know most KNOTORYUS readers are lmao, start with the episode called “NINETY EIGHTY LYIN”).
We love you, Raf, don’t work too hard!
