Earlier this year, at a runway show in Milan attended by A$AP Rocky and Rihanna, adidas linked up with Gucci as Alessandro Michele transferred its signature three-stripes and trefoil onto his own wildly eclectic chequered suits, 70s-style tailoring, and sporty polos.
The long-rumoured collection marked the first time the behemoth labels had linked up, with two drops set to land in the coming months: the first on June 7, and the second runway line later in 2022.
Now, in celebration of the moment adidas met Gucci, on June 8, the two are set to take over the Peckham Liberal Club for a day of music, talks, and events as part of the House of Originals Sports Club.
The line-up includes conversations between football legend Ian Wright and SEASON zine founder Felicia Pennant, activist Tanya Compas and gal-dem’s Kemi Alemoru, plus live performances from rising star Flowerovlove, and a special, soon-to-be revealed guest.
You’ll be able to drop in to Ronan Mckenzie’s community photo studio to be snapped by the talent herself across the afternoon, while English snooker champion Peter Devlin will take over the games room.
There will also be bingo sessions in the bingo hall, as hosted by star stylist Harry Lambert and the inimitable Miss Jason, as well as music from Recess and food from Larry’s Peckham.
Taking place on Wednesday, June 8 from 1pm-5pm, sign up for your chance to attend below.
The adidas x Gucci collection can be shopped here, in select Gucci stores, dedicated pop-ups, and the adidas Confirmed app from June 7.
