Adidas Originals kicked off New York Fashion Week in the most colorful (and casual) way possible — with a presentation from buzzy 23-year-old Dutch designer Daniëlle Cathari this morning.
In her debut for the sportswear label, Cathari delivered on the promise of an Instagram-worthy presentation, enlisting brand ambassador Kendall Jenner and 2017 FN Style Influencer of the Year Hailey Baldwin to front a capsule that was as vibrant in color as it was in diversity.
Over the weekend, the fashion ingenue hosted a street casting call that invited models of all races and ethnicities, most of whom were unsigned. More than half of the models represented different backgrounds, including one model wearing a hijab.
As can be expected from Cathari, her designs reintroduced the OG luxe tracksuits, as well as cropped bustiers, matching oversized denim pairings and lightweight jackets — all featuring the brand’s signature triple stripes. Jenner donned a pair of white open-toe Gianvito Rossi heels paired with a black and white tracksuit while Baldwin stood out in a bright red look from head to toe.
Cathari and Jenner were introduced last year after Adidas reached out to the up-and-comer for a collaboration. Still a student at the Amsterdam Fashion Institute at the time, she raked in overwhelmingly positive reviews after she presented deconstructed vintage Adidas “Power Ranger”-esque tracksuits at the VFiles fall ’17 show during NYFW last year, for seamlessly blending innovation with ’90s trends.
