Ian Brown’s Second Coming – The Adidas ZXZ

When will the romance end!? Adidas and Ian Brown are at it again with another collaboration – this one seeing Brown’s monkey-like mug ending up on the tongue of a pair of Adidas Originals – the Ian Brown ZXZ. The ex-Stone Roses front-man previously endorsed the Ian Brown Superstar35 series back in 2005 – and we here at Tokyo Indie hope that Brown’s second effort at a “second coming” will see more success than the first.

The ZXZ is designed by Tokyo’s very own Kazuki Kuraishi – who has developed a reputation for his simple yet eye-catching, one of a kind creations. Adidas’s London, Newburgh Street store celebrated the release with an installation of all things Ian Brown.
