Yesterday morning, on the back of signing Kanye West, and amidst rumours of a partnership with Pharrell, Adidas Originals announced that they had signed a partnership deal with Nigo. Tomoaki Nagao, better known as Nigo, the creator of the Bathing Ape brand, and more recently Human Made and Uniqlo, hasn’t let up since he announced that he was leaving Bape last year.

While Adidas didn’t give up any information about what Nigo’s role would be and what he would be designing, Nigo tweeted shortly after that he would be launching a collection of clothing and footwear.


The launch will be this fall/winter season, and will be a massive coup for the brand.
