Celebrating the intersection between fashion, art, and music, Adidas and HVW8 announce the release of new artwork on Seeley and Adi Ease styles from two of the design world’s most inspiring minds: Kevin Lyons and Jean André.

On Saturday, November 15, HVW8′s West Hollywood gallery will kick off an international series of events celebrating these collaborations with appearances, artwork, a display of four new shoes from the two artists, and a special musical guest.

Kevin Lyons
“I wanted to create bright, colorful all-over prints. But making sure that they are still very wearable…” says Lyons, “With the Seeley, I wanted to experiment with a lot of the watercolor on paper backgrounds that I have been doing over the past couple of years. I played around with very saturated color mixing that created an analog, thermodynamic Predator-like pattern. I like the moody blue and rich tones that some of the saturation and bleeding make.”

Jean André
For his Adi Ease, Jean looked at an all-over pattern of more sensual shapes and the formal similarities between leaves and women’s lips. Jean adds, “I thought that everybody would expect me to draw girls on the shoes, but I don’t really love figurative patterns. I did, however, want a thugged-out black and white pair that I’d be proud to rock, so I added the girl inside as a signature last touch.”



The November 15th event at HVW8 Gallery will be followed by an installation at Art Basel in Miami from December 3rd – 7th and special pop-up galleries in Europe. Both artists and HVW8 want each launch date to be a full-on event. Expect live paintings, large scale murals, and plenty of great live music.

Saturday, November 15th 2014 – 7PM – 10PM
Exhibition runs through December 28, 2014
