I know what you're thinking, 'now where will I be able to buy adidas clothing that is literally the same but 10x the cost' not the collab that will be missed the most.
It was recently announced that Adidas is putting a hold on its partnership with the luxury fashion brand Balenciaga. The partnership, which began in 2016, had resulted in a number of successful collections of sneakers and clothing, but it appears that Adidas has decided it doesn't want anything to do with a brand that promotes child exploitation believe it or not.
The Balenciaga 'Gift Shop' Campaign went viral for the wrong reasons when it depicted children with bondage teddy bears and court documents containing child abuse. Since then big brands and influencers have been falling like dominoes.
Despite the pause in the partnership, it is not necessarily the end of the collaboration between Adidas and Balenciaga. The two companies have not made any official statement about the future of the partnership, and it is possible that they may resume their collaboration at some point in the future.
In the meantime, fans of the Adidas x Balenciaga collaboration will have to wait to see what the future holds for this partnership. While the pause may be disappointing for some, it is worth noting that both Adidas and Balenciaga have strong reputations in the fashion industry and will no doubt continue to release high-quality products on their own.
adidas has remained somewhat quiet on the whole situation, but users are now reporting that pre-orders from the collection will be delayed or cancelled entirely. The message reads, “We have taken the time to re-evaluate our partnership with Balenciaga and we have decided to pause all product launches until further notice.”
