The wait is over. Prada and Adidas have revealed the first results of their surprise collaboration announced earlier this month, which aims to combine modern luxury and sporting pedigree for this year’s holiday season. With a pair of all-white Superstar sneakers at the forefront, their joint venture is based on the iconic Adidas model launched in 1969 — which thus celebrates its 50th anniversary this year — and a bowling-style carryall handbag.
These pieces are manufactured in Italy by Prada, and are a testament to the know-how and craftsmanship of the Italian luxury house. The premium Superstars are in full-grain leather, while the bag is fashioned from white calfskin. Both creations bear the logos of the two famous brands.

The sneakers and the bags, which will be in a limited edition of 700 numbered pieces, are to be sold together in two-product packs. These will be available from December 4 at a selection of Prada stores around the world, as well as online from Adidas.com and Prada.com. The price has yet to be disclosed, but those who are interested can find out more here.
