This week in covetable collabs: Adidas Originals has teamed up with Japanese streetwear label Neighborhood for a solid collection of clothes and sneakers, including a track suit and new colorways of the Kamanda, the Stan Smith, and the I-5923 in shades of olive drab and black. The collection has landed on Adidas Philippines' online store, and will also be seeing a release through Commonwealth in Greenbelt 5. Here are a few of the pieces you can expect:

Neighborhood, which has been around since 1994 and is still one of Japan's foremost streetwear labels, has been releasing collaboration collections with Adidas Originals since 2015. For this round, they've tapped Los Angeles-based artist Cali Thornhill DeWitt—the man behind Kanye West's widely popular The Life of Pablo tour merch, and incidentally, the subject of a few oddball conspiracy theories about the death of Kurt Cobain.

Adidas says the collection is "inspired by terrace style, classic sportswear and nomadic motorcycle teams." The "target" graphic is said to invoke the design of British mod culture. IMAGE: Adidas Originals

For the Neighborhood collaboration, DeWitt applied his signature Old English typeface, which is used alongside a sans serif and a "target" graphic that's meant to invoke mod culture. Adidas adds that the entire collection is inspired by "terrace style, classic sportswear and nomadic motorcycle teams." Which sounds right up Neighborhood's alley when you consider the kind of clothes they've been making for years.

All said, this is surely one of the more covetable Adidas collaborations 2018. There are still a few pieces available, and a release via Commonwealth to look forward to, so don't sleep.
