Adidas by Stella McCartney and TERREX come together to unveil their debut ski collection for Fall/Winter 2023. Taking high-performance sportswear and luxury design to new heights with apparel, footwear and accessories for the slopes and beyond. British model and actor Iris Law fronts the campaign and collection, a next-generation creative whose passion for self-expression, holistic approach to movement and fearless style set the tone for the season.
Pushing the boundaries of fashion and function, the TERREX collection fuses technical mountain performance innovation and features – with striking prints and silhouettes to stand out on the piste. Heat management materials such as Primaloft Parley padding insulation help to tackle high altitude and low temperatures throughout a day on the slopes. Signature adidas technologies such as RAIN.RDY and WIND.RDY protect wearers against cold and wet weather on the mountain.
Key pieces include the Two Layered Insulated Jacket, made with Primaloft Parley padding, adidas’ innovative insulation derived from recycled ocean plastic, alongside RAIN.RDY technology – delivering warmth and comfort when the temperature starts to fall, both on and off the mountain. The Free Hiker shoe, a reimagined TERREX hiking shoe in a functional utilitarian silhouette made in part with recycled materials offering a sock-like fit for enhanced comfort, is also paired with COLD.RDY technology to help keep wearers warm.
Exploring new possibilities for performance wear, key pieces in the collection have been made with at least 85% recycled materials as part of adidas’ ambition to help end plastic waste.
Speaking about the FW23 campaign and collection, Stella McCartney said:
“This collaboration has always been about pushing the boundaries of sport and fashion so, as we mark our 18th year together, our new chapter with TERREX celebrates fashion with a technical edge to support our community in uncharted terrains. This has been an incredibly exciting journey for me as we go even deeper into the escapism that the outdoors brings.
Working with Iris again has been amazing. I love her bold style and creative spirit, which is in perfect harmony with our vision and captures the essence of this collection. With her love of movement, she effortlessly brings to life the intersection of high fashion and high-performance sportswear – embodying the adventurous spirit of adidas by Stella McCartney.”
Speaking about the FW23 campaign and collection, Iris Law said:
“It’s so exciting to be a part of the collaboration as it debuts its first ski-wear collection! I love both brands, and how together they make something both sport and fashion.
Movement is such a big part of my physical and mental well-being, so being part of this campaign where it’s all about embracing sport in the mountains with some of the most beautiful backdrops in the world, has been an incredible experience.”
I really resonate with the ethos of partnership; it’s so important in helping to refuel my creative spirit, push boundaries and explore. I see nature and the outdoors as one big playground. I am so proud to share what we’ve created, together.”
