holi, a Hindu festival on March 1 and 2, is a technicolor lovefest where attendees paint their bodies and fling bright powders in the air, welcoming spring with hopes of long-lasting color in their everyday lives. Pharrell Williams’ latest adidas drop, the Blank Canvas Collection, was envisioned as a crisp white uniform to be worn for the annual celebration. The lineup includes four minimalist apparel and footwear designs that underscore a message of peace and equality.
The Hu Holi Blank Canvas Track Top ($300) has a two-way zipper and “patch style” embroidery declaring the words “HU MAN BEING.”
Among the three footwear styles is a dope update on the iconic NMD. The all-white Hu Holi Blank Canvas NMD ($250) is a Primeknit upper featuring a special lacing system through the cage of the stabilizer for a unique look.
The simple and versatile Hu Holi Blank Canvas Tennis ($130) offers a sleek take on the everyday trainer. The lightweight, breathable style features Primeknit technology, an all-white colorway, leather lining and block three-stripe detail.
Completing the footwear offering, the Hu Holi Blank Canvas Stan Smith ($130) offers a cleaned up iteration of the classic sneaks in white Primeknit with a coordinated leather lining and adidas and Hu logo on the heel tab.
