Cult skateboarding company and streetwear brand, Fucking Awesome (FA) has once again teamed up with adidas for a new limited release. This time, FA founder and designer Jason Dill, combined influences from adidas styles of the 70s and 80s the outdoors for the adidas Skateboarding by Fucking Awesome Sherpa Collection.
Fusing the Three Stripes iconic design language with FA’s signature aesthetic, Dill’s camo-inspired artwork is brought to life arriving as a full-zip premium high-pile fleece jacket and pant set, featuring zippered pockets, FA branded detailing and distinctive orange accents to tap into the spirit of the outdoors
Of the drop, Dill says, “For the adidas by FA collection, I tried to bring things that I liked about the brand from when I was young like when Bob Marley, Desmond Decker and Peter Tosh were wearing adidas. I just tried to form this collection around what I liked from that era…You don’t want to do what other people are doing. You want things to look significantly different and eye-catching, and I think we landed that. If Nak [FA pro skater] likes something I made, I’ve done my job.”
