Adidas announced its collaboration with British designer Mary Katrantzou this morning, and we haven't been this excited since Raf Simons designed for Adidas or Riccardo Tisci worked his magic on Nike (fashion moves fast, you know?). The collection will consist of women's apparel and unisex sneakers, or as she told WWD, "When we started brainstorming, it was clear that we had a similar customer in mind—it's someone who enjoys life and has fun with clothes. Age was not important, and we wanted the footwear to be for both men and women." Katrantzou is one of the most original digital print-makers designing today and her dresses retail from $2,000 to $10,000, so this is big. Huge. Plus, for those scared to wear her incredibly detailed and massively colorful works all over, just a taste of her prints is an especially exciting proposition. Look for the collab at Adidas in November 2014, and below find some prints that we'd love to see in sneaker form culled from her past six collections. Considering the range of graphics, it's safe to say, we have no idea what to expect.
