After a brief hiatus, adidas Originals' Consortium returns with an impressive revival inspired by the Latin term, "Tabula Rasa" (meaning “blank slate”), giving Consortium a new beginning and future. In reestablishing Consortium, adidas Originals strips back to basics with a palette of natural white tones finished in premium materials, creating a perfect blank canvas for the new Consortium program.
With a mind to set the clock back to zero, adidas Originals reached into its archives for classic silhouettes, namely the Pro Shell, Decade, ZX 500, Matchplay and BC, and reissued these in authentic one-to-one interpretations. Shoes and materials have been kept raw and natural, as authentic and close to their original predecessors as possible.
In addition to stripping the collection of colors to give Consortium a fresh start and clean departure from the past, adidas Originals also paid meticulous attention to artistry and quality of materials. Premium leathers are consistent across all silhouettes with generous use of super-soft suede, nubuck and pigskin.
All of the collection features the same waxed laces, metal lace tips, embossed sockliner, suede tongue and thick threading that gives the entire range a superior handcrafted feel. Leather has been intentionally left unfinished and the interiors are unlined to expose the impeccable construction of the uppers. The tongue houses a fabric loop tag secured by an eyelet, adding a touch of subtle detailing that will be featured in all future Consortium offerings.
From the shedding of colors to the raw, unfinished leather, adidas Originals translated the idea of "Tabula Rasa" into FW11 Consortium, letting the assured and unadorned collection serve as a canvas for new things to come.
A classic tennis shoe and occasionally known as the Arthur Ashe signature model, the Matchplay’s aesthetic has always been about understated elegance.
For Consortium FW11, the Matchplay is pared down further; the minimalist silhouette features full premium nubuck upper in a natural white tone, as well as a pimple outsole.
