Styling and Profiling: Porsche Design Sport and adidas
Porsche Design Sport, in association with adidas, has recently released its latest line, complete with gear for driving, fitness, tennis, golf and water/snow. This is Porsche Design's and adidas's 10th year of collaboration.
In addition to crafting skis for lines like Elan's Amphibio models, the Porsche studio has a hand in making winter clothes for your powder adventures. According to adidas, "The newest line of engineered luxury sportswear for men fuses leading-edge technology with elegant, purist styling to ensure protection, technical performance as well as a fashionable appearance on the world's most challenging slopes and backcountry terrain."
The collection includes the basics—jackets, pants, boots, scarfs—but slick styling sets it apart. The Ski Jacket is a two-layer windproof and waterproof coat, complete with storm flaps, heat-reflective lining zones to retain warmth and an inner media pocket with a headphone port for mixing tunes with your turns. The Ski Pants are made of similar materials, but have durable CORDURA fabric scuff guards, inner snow cuffs and a RECCO avalanche rescue device.
There's also a Lux Scarf made of cotton and wool, a Winter Beanie made of premium fleece, and Winter Gloves with more water repellant materials and—a nice touch—antibacterial liners.
Now that adidas is pushing its winter lines hard, expect to see more of the Porsche ski line in their advertisements. And if you wear these fashions for snowboarding, snowshoeing or other winter sports, we're sure they'll forgive you.
The Porsche Design Sport collection is available worldwide in Porsche Design stores, adidas Concept stores and high-quality department stores.
