Grown-ish actress, producer and student Yara Shahidi has unveils her capsule collection with Adidas Originals this week. Taking inspiration from her combined Iranian and Black heritage, the two-part collaborative footwear and apparel collection.
The collection is highlighted by a Superstar sneaker featuring a beige worn leather upper, with brown and yellow suede stripes and heel panels, metal lace jewels and a scalloped tongue. The shoe’s upper is detailed with gold foil with the word yar, a derivation of Yara’s name meaning friend.
The collection also features two’60s-era inspired Adidas tracksuits. The striking satin track top and pants are updated with relaxed cuts on the arms and legs, as well as a cropped fit in the body, and are elevated with Iranian inspired patterns. Meanwhile, the varsity track top and pants are offered in a mustard color, symbolic of the mustard seed.
Adidas and Shahidi capsule launches exclusively in North America on May 13, 2021 through adidas.com, the brand’s Confirmed app and select retailers.
