adidas Spezial AW 2020 Chapter 2: _nwrdrSPZL

A product release by adidas Spezial and New Order

The second part of the autumn/winter 2020 is a collaborative capsule range designed with New Order. The founder and curator of adidas Spezial, Gary Aspden. is a long time friend and fan of New Order and this collaboration was born out of that relationship. The adidas Spezial team and New Order worked very closely on this project, with New Order travelling over to Herzogenaurach for each design meeting and sample review. The aesthetic of every piece links back to the repeated three-block New Order 'Tour' graphic that the band have used for recent live performances. 
With every item from the _nwrdrSPZL range, we will be including a complimentary pin badge which is exclusive to HANON.

The collection highlight is an outerwear jacket inspired by Bernard Sumner's love of sailing. This piece comes in coated woven fabric with a mesh lining and features 'hidden in plain sight' tonal reflective branding and stripes. There are distinctive see-through hood window panels and a New Order sleeve patch - both details that are synonymous with yachting jackets. The tonal grey of the jacket is lifted by detachable and interchangeable colour-pop pullers to allow the wearer to customise the look of the piece.

New Order's authentic connection to football culture is acknowledged and celebrated through a football jersey that uses their repeated 'Tour' graphic in a tonal engineered jacquard base fabric with elasticated ribbing on the neck and sleeve. The shirt references their music through the Latin wording used in the 'Mod Trefoil' badging along with a playful take on modern football kit sponsorship with the use of song title '586' across the chest.

The New Order track jacket comes in a navy cotton and recycled PES blend pique material. the top takes inspiration from classic adidas track jackets (particularly the signature argyle print of Ivan Lendl) and re-appropriates that look and feel with a repeated print of their 'Tour' graphic sitting above the hem.  The logo tee comes in heather grey cotton and uses the '_nwrdSPZL' graphic underpinned by 'True Faith' in Latin. The 'Tour' logo appears as a wireframe graphic on the back of the shirt.

The choice of footwear silhouette was an easy decision as Bernard Sumner has worn the Wilsy SPZL as a mainstay for New Order's live shows over the past couple of years. The challenge was how to bring a New Order aesthetic to the existing shoe without losing the essence of its adidas design origins. The New Order version comes in a premium clean white leather with a white translucent sole along with updated vamp details, co-branding and the subtle addition of white eyelets. The footbed carries the coloured 'Tour' graphic and the shoes with interchangeable branded lace jewels and reflective laces that offer a colour stab to a limited release of this iconic silhouette. The shoes come packaged in co-branded tissue paper and graphically led shoe box.
