Raf Simons Stan “Trompe L’oeil” Pack
Raf Simons and adidas collaborate for a "Trompe L'oeil" pack of three sneakers. The pack's name is French for "deceive the eye," a painting technique which creates optical illusions, and each sneaker does just that by using a classic Stan Smith silhouette as a base for a different adidas model printed on top. The Samba Stan, as the name suggests, puts the Samba detailing in black atop the Stan Smith, with a perforated "R" logo sneakily adding Raf's branding, along with his name on the heel. The silver Micropacer appears on top of the Stan Smith, even adding printed weathered suede mudguards on the toe. Lastly, a multi-paneled Torsion model follows the same idea, mixing the classic runner's upper printed on the Stan Smith like the other collaborative models.
