After two successful collaborations with adidas Originals; first in 2015 with the ZX Flux and Superstar pack, and second in 2017 with the Superstar Clean; Limited Edt has once again teamed up with adidas Originals with their third and final instalment of their batik-inspired floral pattern series. This time around Limited Edt work their magic on the Forum 84 silhouette and named this collaboration the ‘Singapore Forum’.
Limited Edt takes the Forum 84 Low, a ground-breaking retro basketball shoe from 1984 and manages to fuse the DNA of the original version and yet create something unique. Paying homage to the original white and blue colourway, the Singaporean boutique uses premium hairy suede upper and an off-white midsole to further give it a vintage retro feel. The floral batik pattern is subtlety applied to the inner lining, on the window on the strap and beneath a translucent outsole. Switch to an extra floral batik pattern lace for extra flair.
It’s all about the details from the embossed branding on the leather tongue’s to the gold foil branding of both adidas Originals and Limited Edt on the insole and lateral side of the shoe. A final unique feature, and rather aptly for sunny Singapore, is the white UV reactive uppers which will transform into a rich blue and reveal the floral batik pattern as soon as you step into the sunlight.
A stitched “1 of 300” is hidden under the strap and each pair comes with an individually numbered Singapore Forum collector card showcasing the rarity of this historic collaboration.
To further celebrate the collaboration and do its part for a worthy charitable cause, Limited Edt launches its first ever NFT (Non Fungible Token) called Vanda NFT on the 20th of August. Only 60 unique versions of the Vanda NFT will be made available. Each Vanda NFT is paired with Limited Edt’s Singapore Forum and will come in a special box set that includes a basketball, jersey and an exclusive Singapore Forum collectible trading card. This will be customer’s first chance to get the Singapore Forum.
Vanda is Singapore’s female superhero vigilante. A mythical folk hero to countless of young women. From her mastery in combat to ability to disguise herself, her exploits are already one of legend. Little is known about her except that she has a taste for orchids and sneakers. Fresh orchids left next to her footprint of different sneakers has become the signature of this vigilante when she completes her missions.
Proceeds of each sale of the Vanda NFT will benefit HCSA Community Services Programmes, which focuses on serving the vulnerable group of abused teenage girls and single parent families, giving them a future and a hope.
The Vanda NFT and the ‘Singapore Forum’ boxset will be unveiled during the Project Future – Culture Cartel x 2MR Labs NFT and Collectible Exhibition at 313@somerset from the 11th to 14th of August, and at a special Singapore Forum Pop Up installation at L.E WAY #04-31 at 313@somerset from the 11th to 20th of August.
