adidas Originals and Pharrell Williams take a trip to northern India to honor the ancient spiritual Holi Festival, a springtime celebration of joy, equality, and humanity. Here, festival attendees paint their bodies head-to-toe and fling brightly hued powders in the air, hoping for longlasting color in their everyday lives. Imagined as a crisp white uniform to be worn for Holi, the Blank Canvas collection serves up four pieces of apparel and footwear that underscore a message of peace and equality. The range highlights the playful spirit and soulfulness of the adidas Originals by Pharrell Williams collaboration, now in its fourth year. It also represents a continuation of the Hu journey, reflecting Pharrell’s founding vision of energy, color, and spirituality as a unifying force between peoples.
In its starkness, Blank Canvas begs to be covered and coated in Holi’s wildly colored powders—or simply worn in its pristine condition as a monochrome statement of style.
