adidas Originals x White Mountaineering 2016 Spring/Summer Video

adidas continues to ramp up collaboration efforts on all fronts, having announced a forthcoming collaboration with wings + horns earlier today and here presenting a video preview of its third season with elite Japanese label White Mountaineering. The collection, executed in a color palette of blue and white, is an expression of Yosuke Aizawa’s vision for sportswear – using technical materials to flip everyday silhouettes into sartorially-apt designs. It is chiefly comprised of jackets, shirts, and shorts, with some layering pieces barely recognizable as such (in the best way possible). Alongside the apparel, adidas Originals also gives viewers a look at the footwear selection, which features rarely-seen silhouettes such as the BW Army, Supergrip, ZX500 Hi and Formel 1 alongside the Energy Boost. Get a feel for the collection with the video above as we await the collection release in early 2016.

2 Chainz Checks Out West Coast Customs' "Most Expensivest" Delorean

Thus far, this season of 2 Chainz’s Most Expensivest Shit series with GQ has found the Georgian rapper taking lavish trips to the zoo with French Montana, smoking a theoretically upscale joint in Los Angeles, and checking out some of the sneaker world’s most prized silhouettes. It’s hard to have a discussion about expensive goods though, without talking about cars. With that, 2 Chainz headed to West Coast Customs to explore the historic workshop’s fanciest, most decked-out rides. While perusing the selection – which includes a real-life Mario Kart alongside a Will.I.Am custom and Swarovski-topped vintage Mini Cooper – West Coast Customs CEO Ryan Friedlinghaus also managed to impress the rapper with a blast from the past: a custom DeLorean DMC-12. The car is distinguished in being the only model the DeLorean Motor Company has ever produced, making Friedlinghaus’ custom $500,000 iteration that much more rare. Check out all the specs in the video above and check out more episodes of Most Expensivest Shit here.
