From teaming with Stella, Kanye, and Pharrell to grooming future design stars, Adidas is flying high these days. In keeping up with its stylish status, the classic German athletic brand debuted its majorly renovated Adidas Originals outpost on Melrose yesterday.
Interior upgrades include fresh new furniture (like a coffee table crafted from skate decks and side tables made form movie reels), SoCal-inspired artwork, and installations celebrating LA's coolest landmarks and nabes. As far as merch, expect to find the fashion-focused offshoot brand's full collection of classic kicks (like Superstars and Stan Smiths) and workout apparel, including its latest collab with Pharrell.
Adidas Originals is open daily from 11am to 8pm.
