adidas Materials Of The World China Track Top
- SERIES: ADIDAS MATERIALS OF THE WORLD
- PACK: ADIDAS MATERIALS OF THE WORLD CHINA
- MADE ON: 06/06
- ART.NO: 050188
Combining elegance and class with sports wear isn’t easy, yet adidas manages to do just this with their Materials of the World series. Inspired by Chinese culture, the China TT is given a healthy dose of finesse and style that is hard to ignore.
The silky black exterior is patterned with subtle dragon figures and other Chinese design elements, lightly embroidered into the polyester and rayon shell. The typical mark of a adidas track top – a small trefoil logo on the left breast – is present, and echoed intensely by the large, thick black trefoil embroidered on the back of the jacket.
The inner lining is a deep red shiny polyester. The jacket has a zippered pocket on each side, and a third inside on the left breast. Stitched to the inner pocket is a red and white Materials of the World patch which reads:
“Materials of the World China. Since the time of the ancient Chinese dynasty, a time when the Emperors demanded exclusive use of its symbolism, the dragon has been celebrated as a divine mythical creature that brings with it associations of power and prosperity, goodness and heroism, divinity and nobility. As an emblem of energy, optimism and ambition, the dragon symbol still gives much comfort and inspiration to Chinese people around the world.”
