adidas Originals x Ransom AW11 – 1st drop
The Ransom Holding Company was founded in Toronto, Canada, back in 2002 and embodies a retail progression that encompasses their culture and general proud Canadian heritage. Their collaboration series with adidas Originals draw inspiration from classic, technical hiking footwear and cross it with modern day casual trainers.
For inspiration for their autumn/winter 2011 collection, the team at Ransom decided to a take a journey to a place they know best; coastal British Columbia and the extensive Pemberton Icecaps. In their early years, the Canadian brand spent a lot of time in this part of the world, thus deciding to share a little piece of the brands history and the areas outstanding natural beauty in the photography for their lookbook and designs for the new collection.
Now into their 5th season with adidas Originals, the Ransom story continues to grow from strength to strength with material and colour updates to their already established models, as well as an offering of a few new silhouettes thrown into the mix.
This first release of the new collection is available from size? stores and online now with a second drop scheduled to land in October.
