Eric Emanuel and adidas are back with more classic basketball looks, just in time for summer. This time around, EE continues his use of neutral colors, this time mixing them with floral prints for a beautiful new collection releasing this week.
Eric Emanuel’s unique style has made his apparel a must-have for fans of classic cuts and heavy sportswear inspiration. While the EE brand is still somewhat niche in reach and audience, the recent endorsement and collaborative project with adidas have helped propel the New York-based retro brand onto streetwear’s main stage. While many are still enjoying Eric’s first offering of adidas footwear & apparel, he has been hard at work on the next installment of his colorful sportswear line, which finally releases later this week.
Eric Emanuel’s love for timeless basketball sneakers and apparel remains the base of his inspiration for his Spring/Summer 2019 adidas capsule collection. Focusing largely on footwear, the new project again includes a unique take on the original Rivalry Hi OG, as well as a more minimal colorway for the reworked Rivalry RM. The OG model is covered in a brilliant floral print that incorporates pink and red roses with striking green leaves over a neutral tan background. Similarly, the Boosted version of the Rivalry comes with a cream-colored upper featuring forest green stripes and laces for a more toned down look. Finally, the last piece of footwear in this collection is the classic Adilette, which is covered in the same colorful floral pattern as the OG Rivalry.
Eric Emanuel’s unique take on classic adidas silhouettes will release in a second Spring & Summer ready installment on April 27th, 2019. While every piece varies in price, the stars of this release remain the Rivalry and Rivalry RM, priced at $150 and $180 apiece.
