adidas Consortium along with Parisian retailer The Next Door pay homage to festival d’Avignon by drawing on the age-old theatrical archetypes of Comedie et Tragedie, two forms that at first thought seem oppositional but actually share an underlying harmony. The A.R. Trainer celebrates Comedie, taking inspiration from classic harlequin costumes seen throughout history on the stage of the Comedia De L’Arte theatre. It features subtle nods to the colors of those costumes with shades of peachy-pink across the three stripes and a soft mint-green sole on the underside.
