Considering the way this economy is (still) going, I don’t get the chance to really get my shop on the way I used to. So when I got the opportunity to visit the adidas store in Soho for an event featuring the Shaman Work recording artists, I was pretty ecstatic. The public event, which was from 4-7 PM on April 23rd, was a casual opportunity to listen to some jams and shop around without being pestered by store employees.
The featured DJ at the public event was DJ 2-Tone Jones who, ahem, was sorta cute and reminded me of a cross between Pigeon John and John Legend with a few more freckles added in the mix. He played classics like The Roots’ “Dynamite!” and Common’s “U, Black Maybe” along with a healthy dose of some other Common cuts.
In terms of the adidas collection, the Jeremy Scott pieces had me thinking “All Day I Dream About Sex.” They were so satisfying that they were literally like sex in fabric form. The Mi adidas styles were very cute and some of the men’s clothing pieces were pretty edgy for adidas so I give them points for that. But really, M.I.S.S. fans will agree that the leopard prints and crop tops of Mr. Scott are still where it’s at. The hoodie with ears and attached tail that has been featured by fashion mavens everywhere was amazing but I just couldn’t bring myself to cop a $180.00 hoodie. I ended up with the Scott leopard print tee and didn’t feel TOO much guilt afterwards. Thanks, Common.
