Adidas Originals Denim by Diesel

The two respected brands Adidas and Diesel have collaborated to produce the Adidas Originals Denim by Diesel collection. This collection was in fact released about a year ago, but the collection is still going strong, with a couple of new designs created since the first line's release at the beginning of 2009.

I'm a sucker for collaborations between my favourite brands and designers, so when I first came across this collection I instantly fell in love with it. It is without doubt one of my favourite collaborations between brands in recent memory, and in terms of denim products it can only be challenged by the fantastic Puma Loves Evisu collection which is still going strong after a couple of years.

The jeans are essentially made by Diesel, with the recognisable marker of the Adidas brand left on the jeans after teaming-up. The influence of Adidas can be seen in additional details to the outline of the Diesel jeans, with the metallic Adidas trefoil on the patch of the pocket, the silver/black (varies in jean style) Adidas trefoil on the back of the jeans, and also the trademark 'three stripes' on the outside leg, which are visible when you roll up the bottom of the jeans. The collection creates jeans for both men and women, and the styles available to both can be seen in the two collection outline posters below.

These jeans have been released in extremely limited numbers, and are strangely enough not available online. They can only be found in selected Adidas Originals stores, and the only two Adidas Originals stores that I have seen the jeans available in are in its Covent Garden store (Earlham Street) and in its Soho based store in New York (136 Wooster Street). Also the right sizes are difficult to come across as I experienced not so long ago, the store always seems flooded with W30 L32, of no use to us W32 L34 which are extremely difficult to find. For more information on the collection details take a look at the Adidas Originals website which is
