Pharrell Williams has become even more popular ever seen he formed the funk, hip hop and rock band N*E*R*D with Chad Hugo. More than a decade has passed since Pharrell became actively involved in the fashion scene and he has managed to somewhat achieve recognition as a fashion icon. Back in 2005, Pharrell and his partners from Billionaire Boys Club Miami re-purchased full stake in the clothing label, Billionaire Boys Club & Ice Cream. As of lately he is even being referred to as the “the man with the Midas touch” and this man has teamd up adidas once again for a collaboration.
The latest time Pharrell Williams collaborated with the Three Stripes, it was for his adidas Originals collection that consisted of 50 different tonal colorways of the iconic Superstar model. The collection was introduced in an issue of L’Officiel Hommes Italia via a spread designed by Maurizio Cattelan, the Italian artist from Toilet Paper Magazine. When arranged in the right order, the sneakers seem to appear like a rainbow, perhaps this is why the collection was dubbed the “Supercolor” Superstar Collection. However, his latest collaboration with adidas involves their latest NMD silhouette and is multi-colored or vibrant.
The adidas NMD pair that has been dubbed “Human Race” was last spotted back in January when Pharrell posted a photo on his Instagram of himself laced up in the sneaker. It almost does not even look anything like the recent NMD releases. The Primeknit uppers of this collaborative iteration appear to be dressed up entirely in a yellow hue. Black accents can also be spotted on it, the “Human” that appears on one shoe and the “Race” that is visible on the other, both in large font. The sneaker is also equipped with clean white outsoles.
So far, both adidas and Pharrell have remained silent regarding when this collaboration will be arriving at retailers. However, one thing is for certain that sneakerheads will certainly be getting an opportunity to cop a pair of the Pharrell x adidas NMD “Human Race.”
