Union is one of the most esteemed shops in the world of streetwear, known for bringing rare Japanese brands to US soil — and playing a part in the history of cultural juggernauts like Supreme and Gosha Rubchinskiy. Since their founding in 1989 they’ve firmly had their finger on the pulse of what’s cool in street culture worldwide. Now, they’re collaborating with adidas Spezial on a capsule collection that draws from some of their longest-running inspirations both in the States and abroad: New York B-boys, London “terrace” culture, and the iron-on “heated words” font that both subsects favored. The collection is centered around two new colors of the adidas Garwen SPZL — one that draws from a 1994 model of the adidas 350, one that boasts a premium British suede upper — and also features apparel like a poly tracksuit and a crew neck sweater. The collection is set to launch this Friday, October 19th, at Union’s LA shop, so take a look at the full collection below, and be sure to head over to La Brea Avenue to grab your favorite pieces if you’re located in the City of Angels.
