adidas Originals x NTS Radio



Don’t Assume 


In short were excited for this one, NTS’s programming and eclectic schedule soundtrack most days here. 
Following a series of collaborative events and remote broadcasts hosted by adidas & NTS, adidas Originals are pleased to officially announce an all-new collaborative partnership with NTS Radio, a leading global platform for underground music and alternative culture at large. Released under the title of DON’T ASSUME, the collection ties together local community spirit with a global outlook.

A long-standing tagline for NTS Radio, ‘DON’T ASSUME’ was borrowed from a free-jazz LP by singer Maggie Nicols & pianist Peter Nu, released on Leo Records in the late ‘80s. (listen here) It sounds like everything except jazz - a loose piano accompaniment set to warbling bird-song vocals, at times giving way to spoken poetry, ending on the last refrain: “Don’t assume… don’t assume… there’s no room to assume”. NTS has always embodied this attitude, working with as wide a group of artists and partners as possible, representing all styles of music, culture and people. Don’t assume anything about what you expect to hear on NTS.

Founded on a shared appreciation for homegrown spirit, this debut capsule collection is a premium lifestyle offering rooted in sport, music and culture. The 8-piece football-inspired collection consists of the adidas Originals latest ‘SPRT’ tracksuit and features Hackney’s cult Caribbean restaurant ‘Peppers and Spice’ as a sponsor, as featured on the late Anthony Bourdain’s TV series Parts Unknown.

The adidas Orignals x NTS Radio Collection launches at HANON on the 25th Of May. 



When teaming up for a Don’t Assume range, NTS selected a diverse group of residents, friends and family as models, representing the inclusivity at NTS’ core. Each of these artists will also be presenting a one-off ‘Don’t Assume’ radio show live on NTS - a chance to play out different styles of music than what they’re usually known for.
