adidas Originals has partnered up with renowned Japanese graffiti artist WANTO once again to bring a gritty yet debonair aesthetic to a capsule of gear made for renegade street artists. To reflect the type of gear that the 246 crew head would wear himself while creating his work, the collection starts with a black-out tracksuit with touches of yellow on the exterior and a bright pattern on the interior liner, while reflective touches add some level of visibility for the nocturnal work hours. A white tee is also included in the capsule, featuring the WANTO tag on left chest. The adidas Yung-1 is also highlighted by the same black and yellow colorway with the high-vis reflective panels, while Gore-Tex adds that extra layer of durability and protection.

The entire collection will be available for purchase beginning on May 30th. For those in the NYC area, adidas has opened doors to an I Want Candi exhibit at their Brooklyn Farm space in North Williamsburg; it will be open to the public on May 23rd and 24th from 3-9 PM.
