For adidas fans there has always been a romanticism around the brand’s birthplace in Herzogenaurach. A young man on a homage to Adi’s villa reflects the ideology behind the adidas Originals x SPEZIAL range. A new generation inspired by the foundations of this sportswear institution,’ says Gary Aspden, creator of the adidas Originals x SPEZIAL range.
To celebrate the launch of Gary Aspden’s S/S 15 adidas Originals x SPEZIAL collection, Nick Griffiths and &SON Films offer a short film about a fan’s journey to Herzogenaurach, adidas’ birthplace. Their protagonist travels from Munich to the house where Adi Dassler once lived, a trip that mirrors Aspden’s voyage into adidas’ archives. Academy Award-winning composer Atticus Ross provides the score.
