NEW IN – Pharrell’s Hottest New Collection for adidas

Following the overwhelming success of Pharrell’s previous SuperStar range, adidas Originals have once again collaborated with the pioneering musician. Pharrell’s passion for art has been blended seamlessly with the adidas passion for trainers in the new SuperShell collection.

Choosing some of his favourite icons, Pharrell has both curated and designed this epic new collection, which sees the classic SuperStar silhouette take on a whole new look. These sneakers are an easy way to shake up your wardrobe this summer, as well as owning a limited piece of artwork.

adidas

Japanese icon, Mr. has infused the classic SuperStar style with anime influences. Inspired by contemporary Japanese culture, these trainers will add a sense of new-age fun to your outfit, releasing the inner child within us all.

Todd James, the celebrated New York artist, has used graffiti styling in his unique design. Pulling through the controversial art style, these designs capture your attention immediately and inspire individuality for the way you dress.

adidas supershell

For Pharrell’s own designs, colourful flowers cover the toe and heel of the SuperStar shoe. Keeping fun in the core of his designs, Pharrell wants to inspire creativity and happiness, utilising cartoon-esque flower designs and bold, contrasting colours.

These impressive styles are an easy and stylish way to freshen up a classic summer outfit. Wear with ripped jeans and an over-sized tee for a cool, casual style or for the warmer days of summer, you can even pair these with your trusty denim shorts, mixing ultimate comfort with iconic style.

adidas Originals and Pharrell have really stepped up their game with these eye-catching pieces and these designs are sure to sell out fast, so visit our unique adidas hub and get them while you can…

All three styles are available in White and Black on Very.co.uk

HP Spectre

Ben Wedderburn was the photographer on shoot, and he is very particular about the tech he uses on shoot.  As well as taking all the photos, he ensures that the music on shoot keeps up the energy and gets everyone in the mood ! He fell in love with the HP Spectre! Don’t believe us? Take it from the man himself… ‘ The HP Spectre is my laptop choice on shoot because not only is it lightweight and slim, but the sound quality is amazing. Music is really important to me as I need to set the mood for the shoot, with HP Connected Music I am able to play all the latest songs and log in whatever the location.’ So for your chance to win, let us know why music is important to you.

HP ENVY

Hair and make-up is another essential when on shoot, so we caught up with our hair and make-up stylist Shell to tell us all about her favourite tech; the HP Envy. ‘With the HP Envy, you can tell the true quality of the photos from the screen which is unlike most laptops. It helps me to see how the model will look so that I can see if there are any areas I need to focus on.’ Shell Sullivan. So if you are looking for a premium quality laptop, with stunning HD visuals for your movies, this is definitely the laptop for you.

HP Pavilion

Our model and stylist are also keen lovers of HP devices! Hannah, our glamorous model, adores the HP Pavilion because she is always on the go and can stay in touch with her boyfriend and family when she is travelling between locations.
