adidas Originals celebrates night-time creativity with OG Nite Factory Boss Ranveer Singh
adidas Originals celebrated Originality & Night-Time Creativity, with India brand ambassador, Ranveer Singh, at Famous Studio which was converted into a never seen before industrial garage set-up. The celebration marked the launch of the brand’s biggest sneaker drop for Spring Summer 2019 – the NITE JOGGER. The reflective Nite Jogger is a progressive design incorporating classic archival cues with modern lines. Taking inspiration from the brand’s first foray into hi-vis technology, Nite Jogger’s contemporary design delivers an advanced interpretation of a past style retooled and restyled for today’s night time creator.
The NITE JOGGER launch took ‘Originality’ a notch higher as the brand identified 11 ‘Nite creators’ across various fields who spoke about how #ItsNeverTooLate to pursue their creative vision. These Nite Creators were captured by photographers Mohit Varu, Izaan Khan & Lekharatnam in their ‘Nite Joggers’ while escaping the rules, structure, and rigidity of the day and reclaiming their creativity at night.
Keeping with after-dark reflective personality of the Nite Jogger, the iconic ‘NITE’ factory was led by the Factory Boss Ranveer Singh who wooed the crowd with an enthusiastic performance as he cheered for the Trefoil! He then went on to interact with an innovative ‘Nite Bot’ – robotic setup as he unveiled the ‘Nite Jogger’ shoes in front of a full-house of more than 900 guests!
An array of Factory elements with multiple reflective aspects got the venue buzzing:
- Nite Archives – A special archival section that told the story of the evolution of the Nite Jogger from the late 80s to 2019
- Nite Gallery – ‘Creators Wall of Fame’ that showcased the 11 ‘Nite Creators’ from varied fields of art captured by photographers in their Nite Joggers
