Jeremy Scott’s adidas Originals ObyO collection is getting a ton of attention these days, but you could argue that J.Scott would either be markedly different or altogether nonexistent without this latest Three Stripes collaborator. It’s plain to the eye that Scott’s designs are heavily influenced by late ’80s/early ’90s hip-hop, and one of the most influential forces therein was Russell Simmons’ Def Jam Records. Def Jam has done numerous tagteams with Three Stripes and the latest, this Def Jam x adidas Metro Attitude is one of the curiouser releases. There’s no affiliation to any particular rapper here, and while the black/white/green/yellow colorway is more befitting a ’90s Green Bay Packers alternate jersey than, say, New Jersey’s Redman, the unmistakable Def Jam logo makes sense with this high-contrast palette.
