Adidas Skateboarding and Nora Vasconcellos come together to debut the skateboarder’s first unisex apparel and footwear collection. Limited by none and created for all, the six-piece capsule is a reflection of Vasconcellos’ fluid personal style and her love of skateboarding.
“The beauty is that [skateboarding] is accessible to anyone if they are willing to try it,” Vasconcellos revealed when explaining why she chose to co-design a unisex collection. “I love designing boards and graphics, but this is the pinnacle of what I’ve designed product-wise. It is a universal collection breaking the barrier of saying ‘this is for a man’ or ‘this is for a woman.’ I can see guys I skate with like Diego Najera and Miles Silvas going for the darker palette and someone like DeAndre Thebpanya going for some of the other colors – it all compliments each other.”
The Nora Collection is comprised of a set of color-blocked, pastel polos in a short and long sleeve design, complete with custom Nora branding, a cozy lavender chino pant, a soft insulated yellow fleece and a hand-painted, watercolor tee inspired by the rider’s love of florals.
The new unisex capsule features a matching 3MC silhouette arriving in a vibrant color palette. Receiving unique customization details, Vasconcellos’ name sits atop of the 3MC x Nora design while her original artwork is found in the shoe’s insole. Additional elements include a shout out to her hometown of Pembroke, MA along with her birth year stitched into the shoe’s heel tabs.
Apparel sizes will run from XXXS—XXL, and footwear will start at a Women’s 5.5 and Men’s 4 respectively. The Nora Capsule will be available beginning October 17 on the adidas Skateboarding website.
