Kicking off one of the most hotly anticipated collaborations of the year, adidas Originals proudly presents the first instalment of its collaborative project with iconic Japanese anime series, Dragon Ball Z.

With each shoe in the project taking inspiration from one of the franchise’s characters, the inaugural release pays homage to a classic battle between two of Dragon Ball Z’s most familiar faces, Son Goku and Frieza.

Commonly heralded as one of, if not the greatest showdown in Dragon Ball Z history, Son Goku and Frieza’s battle on the Namek Planet spanned over 20 episodes and is now regarded as a benchmark of anime culture.

First up, the remodelled adidas ZX 500 RM silhouette forms the backdrop for Son Goku’s character, assuming an orange and blue colourway that immediately harks to the character’s iconic Ki.

The shoe’s classic mesh and suede construction stays true to the design of the original ZX 500 model, whilst ripped canvas on the 3-stripe mark and tongue reference the character’s ripped jumpsuit. Similarly, the shoe’s faded yellow mesh on the toe box and sides references the Super Saiyan transformation that would eventually lead to his victory in the battle.

Finally, hidden details across the shoe complete the referential design, such as embroidery of Son Goku’s Flying Nimbus and the Kanji detail on the medial side, referencing the sound of the flying nimbus cloud.

Dragon Ball details on the tongue, and Goku Kanji details on the heel patch complete the picture.

Next up, the striking purple and white colour palette of Sun Goku’s nemesis Frieza is applied to the new Yung 1 silhouette. The shoe’s fluid, disruptive design forms the perfect canvas for Frieza’s own unmissable appearance, featuring a suede and textile construction with pink accents peppered throughout.

TPU components refence Frieza’s glossy shoulder and head elements, while an embossed suede patch on the medial side references the character’s muscular first form. Finishing touches include similar Dragon Ball details on the tongue and sock liner, culminating in a fitting tribute to another of Dragon Ball Z’s most iconic characters.

Releasing globally on 29th September, each shoe in the release will be presented in special collaborative packaging featuring an individual Dragon Ball detail, each box coming together to create a singular back cover design.

Starting things off with a duo of truly unforgettable models, this first release sets the pace for the remaining releases to come, uniting classic adidas design with one of the most beloved animated series of all time.

The announcement and showcase for the magical dress was attended by a bevy of notable guests, who were clad in their vibrant heritage themed garb. Spotted were Mthoko ‘Swenka’, Tracy Hlophe, Dj Sithelo who got the party going after the formal proceedings were over

The dress was worn by Zama Gcaba, who is also known as ‘Black Barbie’. The menu for this auspicious day was curated by Chef Lenstwe who ensured the guests had a proper feast.

The print from which the dress is made is inspired by a uniquely South African story of heritage and a celebration of our various cultures. “I created the dress with the bride that would win it in mind. I wanted to capture the essence of the meeting of two families and the merging of their heritage, and the spirit of celebration that surrounds the wedding day” said David Tlale.

Adding, “Every bride deserves a couture moment and I’m excited to make one special bride’s dreams come to life,” Tlale continues.

The dress was showcased as part of a collection that pays homage to David’s recently deceased mother, and fuses elements of the rice brand’s Heritage campaign that rolled out during the month of September.

The competition will be run across national and regional radio as well as social media from October, and the winner will be announced in December 2019.

South African Sneaker News: Bathu Sneaker, Yama Supa

The only thing better than securing a clean pair of brand new kicks is getting a dope set that is authentically South African.

Being clad in local innovation isn’t just cool as a political statement; but also because our designers are kicking ass. One such brand is Bathu, who are looking into disrupting and elevating the current local landscape this summer.

South African Sneaker News: Bathu Sneaker, Yama Supa

The South African sneaker brand is scaling their business to avail their sneakers nationally, and it’s a first.

The #YamaSupa is a first from Bathu and draws inspiration from a multitude of South African cultures. With the creative mojo ‘Abafana  be style, abo sisi bama weave, wonke ama kasi alles, this is for you.’

The Bathu architects are elated about this next move.

Adding, “We are extremely excited to be bringing something that we hope will be an advocate for change in the current worldview of locally produced brands, also allowing for the nation a glimpse into our daily lives. People should be on the lookout for us and what we have in store this season”
