Adidas Originals and Arwa Al Banawi come together for an eclectic Forum Low
This season brings us the latest collaboration of adidas Originals and Arwa Al Banawi for a considerate take on the classic Forum silhouette. Solely due to her work in the past few years, Arwa Al Banawi has made an image of this generation’s most impactful designers. Binding elements of high end fashion and streetwear and giving it an eclectic feel , the Saudi designer thrives on blending traditional tailoring with contemporary influences. Al Banawi is known for her unwavering commitment to bringing together Eastern and Western perspectives, often paying homage to her Gulf heritage and reinterpreting it through new lenses.
Inspired by Arwa’s spirit animal, the “Ibex”, some of the sneaker’s unique details are drawn from “Capra” — which translates to “Mountain Goat Family”. Crafted with canvas upper with suede overlays and matching leather stripes with hand-stitched embroidery, the Arwa Al Banawi Forum Low sneaker is painted in a desert-esque color palette . A woven red and white heel cap which is inspired by the checkered pattern of traditional Arabian fabrics pays respect to the designer’s roots and identity . Completing the look are the branded lace jewels, a graphic footbed with contrast binding, and gold foil co-branded details.
The Adidas Originals and Arwa Al Banawi carefully collaborated Forum Low sneaker is now available to shop on shop.adidas.co.in. for a retail price of INR 9,999. Take a look on the images of the kicks below.
