adidas E2E Scien & Klor TT
- SERIES: END 2 END (PHASE TWO)
- DESIGNED BY: Scien & Klor (123Klan)
- MADE IN: CHINA
- MADE ON: 08/07
- ART.NO: 601640
Scien and Klor, French graffiti writers from the 123Klan, came together with adidas Originals and Footlocker to put out a black and yellow Decade Low and tracksuit top for the second phase of the End 2 End series (as known as E2E). The E2E releases were meant to take inspiration from graffiti and even the name of the series holds much meaning, referring to the practice of painting a entire subway or freight train from one end to the other.
The all black polyester jacket is decorated on the front with various cartoon illustrations in both white and yellow, such as clouds, bubbles, skulls, dice, diamonds, and dollar signs. Hidden among the iconic, almost comic-like objects is the word ‘Klor’ of course referencing one of the artists involved in the jacket’s creation. Both the adidas trefoil logo and the ’123Klan’ tag are embroidered into the polyester with black thread, giving them a subtle, nearly invisible appearance and helping to keep the track top from feeling overly branded.
The back showcases a large white and yellow print of a Scien character; a futuristic, robot cartoon, seemingly smiling while throwing up hand symbols and saying “YO!”. Above this both of the artist names are embroidered in yellow. The final touch is the black zipper, branded in white with the End 2 End series logo.
