This season, adidas Spezial takes inspiration from the look and the lineage of the British Soul scenes. There is a thread that runs from the Northern Soul phenomenon of the 1970s through the early House/Jazz Fusion of the 80s through Acid Jazz in the 90s that has left an unshakable imprint and legacy. The 70s saw London’s ‘Soul boys’ setting their own style agenda whilst working-class youths in the north were requesting rare, fast-tempo soul records in the clubs and dancehalls of Wigan and Blackpool. Almost as good as stumbling upon a vintage adidas tee at a second-hand shop, this t-shirt is already a classic. It pays homage to the clean, minimal aesthetic of Spezial, with a box logo on the front. A 100% Cotton Single jersey with a ribbed crewneck.
