ADIDAS CONSORTIUM returns in 2011 with the release of TABULA RASA COLLECTION, which in Latin, meaning “blank slate“.
As most of you would know, Adidas Consortium is the highest Tier Footwear Program available only to a handful of sneaker boutiques in the World. Since 2009, ESPIONAGE has been part of this elite program with many releases selling out on the day of launch. Adidas Consortium took a break from the market place in 2010-2011 and returns in November 2011 starting off with this Tabula Rasa Collection, which symbolises a fresh start, a clean slate to the program.
“In reestablishing Consortium, adidas Originals strips back to basics with a palette of natural white tones finished in premium materials, creating a perfect blank canvas for the new Consortium program.
With a mind to set the clock back to zero, adidas Originals reached into its archives for classic silhouettes, namely the Pro Shell, Decade, ZX 500, Matchplay and BC, and reissued these in authentic one-to-one interpretations. Shoes and materials have been kept raw and natural, as authentic and close to their original predecessors as possible.
In addition to stripping the collection of colours to give Consortium a fresh start and clean departure from the past, adidas Originals also paid meticulous attention to artistry and quality of materials. Premium leathers are consistent across all silhouettes with generous use of super-soft suede, nubuck and pigskin.
All of the collection features the same waxed laces, metal lace tips, embossed sockliner, suede tongue and thick threading that gives the entire range a superior handcrafted feel. Leather has been intentionally left unfinished and the interiors are unlined to expose the impeccable construction of the uppers. The tongue houses a fabric loop tag secured by an eyelet, adding a touch of subtle detailing that will be featured in all future Consortium offerings.
From the shedding of colors to the raw, unfinished leather, adidas Originals translated the idea of “Tabula Rasa” into FW11 Consortium, letting the assured and unadorned collection serve as a canvas for new things to come.”
