NEW YORK, Jul 2, 2012/ — The new adidas SLVR Autumn/Winter 2012-13 campaign takes inspiration from Fritz Lang’s classic silent film Metropolis.
Shot by Willy Vanderperre, the ads present three group compositions against a patchwork of various wooden surfaces, evoking a contemporary behind-the-scenes feel.
Architectural, yet loose and make-shift, the imagery continues to communicate adidas Sport Style Creative Director Dirk Schönberger’s high-fashion perspective, which combines precision tailoring with a sport attitude.
It is this contrast which is expressed through mixing stillness with dynamic moments, illustrating the fusion of tailoring and sportswear which is at the core of the collection.
The video extends this idea into graphic moving footage, further carving out a distinct tonality for SLVR.
Designed for life on the move, adidas SLVR continues its stride forward.
The result is an over-arching communication campaign that translates into still images and a short mood film, followed by an updated brand website design, all released globally July 2012.
