With the new year only getting started, adidas Originals taps into another one of their innovative projects with the introduction of XBYO; a line of essentials that takes inspiration from elements of the brand's past with basic performing activewear while using contemporary designs from the present streetwear scene as its primary focus.
Developed by revered pattern maker Satomi Nakamura, XBYO, or X by O, puts emphasis on the precision of cuts and the quality of fits that only the most premium of fabrics in Japanese-crafted Yamayo terry offers. The three stripes reveal importance in clean-cut craftsmanship for their latest line of streetwear driven activewear through one of the brand's classic icons; the signature "X" cross motif from the heel tab of the 1959 adidas Italia which is stamped on each garment in reflective for a touch of flash. Given the preciseness and adequacy of craftsmanship, the simplicity in their designs and the project's collective creativity, XBYO is a perfect representation of the direction adidas Originals is headed for 2017.
With winter being in full effect, adidas Originals' X by O collection makes for perfect layering material for the harsh weather conditions as well as some relaxed pieces for the upcoming Spring. You can rediscover the timeless essentials in your wardrobe by grabbing XBYO at the downtown location, or online.
