Kris Van Assche for Adidas

And the designer sneakers collaborations continue to roll out like a juggernaut (that seems to be powered by our insatiable consumption), this time around it’s Kris Van Assche for adidas originals. The Ultra BOOST has been re-imagined with a menswear staple,  argyle, on the Primeknit upper of the sneaker. Two colourways are available: red and navy design or a grey and black one. Available June 25 at select adidas stores, $299.

Christian has been a cultural and style junkie since the age of 6; while most kids were swiping cookies, he was swiping his grandfathers' Patek Philippe. Raised to appreciate art, fashion,design and  literature (yeah, this one actually reads) by a single mother fondly called Jackie-O. Christian quickly went from childhood cultural capital thief to academia protégé. Referred to as the cat's meow by some, too clever by half by others, Christian eschewed the academic life and ran away to join the circus -the fashion circus. Several well-appointed positions later and a career on the rise would be most people's dream but it was time to say fuck off and start all over again.

This is Christian Dare Unedited.
