Puma Court Star - Coming Soon

Jun 25th 2014

Hitting an ace at exactly the right time, Puma are set to liberate an archived 80s design for a summer of tennis. Tennis footwear during the 70s and 80s was incredibly refined and this is something that has helped Puma's designs stand the test of time. These days tennis silhouettes have been reinterpreted as casual attire and it's clean silhouettes like the Court Star that win game, set & match.

This is the first time the Court Star has been reintroduced since it's inception all the way back in the 80s. In line with the gentlemanly aesthetics of the sport, it's constructed in a premium leather and finished with 'A Touch Of Class'. Actually, there are a few touches of class, one is undoubtedly the Formstripe and then the gold lettering placed above. All of this sits on top of a traditional sole which in this case has been treated for an authentic vintage feel.

The Court Star will take centre court this weekend. Stay tuned for detailed information.

Coming Soon : adidas x Rick Owens 'Tech Runner'

Jun 18th 2014

Continually pushing boundaries with his inimitable sense of design, Rick Owens holds an untouchable place in mens fashion. Surprisingly, his directional approach attracted adidas attention last year and the pair continue to work together into 2014. The partnership marks a new direction for adidas and running in the same vein as Yohji Yamamoto and Kanye West, Owens takes adidas into the unpredictable world of high fashion.

Contemporary design isn't something adidas is afraid of though and this twinned with experience is definitely a winning combination. The basis for the 'Tech Runner' is indeed a running profile. However, this is no adidas Boost as an exaggerated sole unit and  premium materials take the shoe through a barrier no 'runner' has ever broken. Despite this the result is surprisingly wearable and significantly more understated than last season's effort.

These are set to arrive with us in the coming weeks so stay tuned for release information following shortly. To make any inquiries, please contact us through dann@triads.co.uk

Stone Island Ice Jacket Wool Blend - Coming Soon

Jun 10th 2014

Stone Island is a brand synonymous with pushing forward but with every creation the brand seems to surpass even itself. We've seen some astonishing efforts in the past but the coming season is arguably the strongest to date. As usual Stone Island have used a relatively conventional design in terms of silhouette but taken this season's ICE Jacket to a new dimension. This is through intelligent material choices and is the result of extensive and unfathomable research.

Entitled the 'Ice Jacket Wool Blend' this unparalleled piece of outerwear is indeed made from wool. However, it's definitely not the woolen jacket you'd expect it to be and there's a lot more at work than on the average duffel coat. Intertwined with polyester and treated to a thermocratic process, the jacket has the ability to change colour depending on temperature. This is with the help of pigment trapped in the inner molecules which gradually release to result in the jacket appearing a darker shade in colder conditions. Lastly, it's finished with a limited edition patch and a feather filled hood.

This piece priced at £995 is now available in-store. It will also find it's way online with the rest of our early AW14 delivery in the coming days.
