Unconventional, fun and truly original, accessories brand Italia Independent’s partnership with adidas is a complementary one. Eccentric entrepreneur Lapo Elkann dug his way through adidas’ vast archive, as well as his own, to take inspiration for two ZX Flux packs: the Italia Independent print pack and the Italia Independent NPS pack.

Not afraid to experiment, the print pack is the bolder of the two as the Italian brand plays with the integration of iconic patterns to create brand new ones.

Animal print merges with the rave-inspired rainbow upper, pulled together with a bright pink heel cage and midsole, and classic camo colours are presented in a dog’s tooth pattern in two colourways: khaki tonals, and blue and black. The satin-like upper on each shoe enhances the prints, whilst the TPU 3-Stripes mark and translucent outersole bring a technical feel.346438

Coming in two colourways of navy and grey, the upper is made from a Ballistic woven fabric, inspired by carbon fiber commonly used in luxury cars, yachts and aircraft. The fitted Neoprene sockliner features some of Italia Independent’s prints in subtle tones, again using the camouflage and dog’s tooth pattern.
