She’s finally teaming up with Adidas and the line will come in five different capsules rolling out with three global launch days: Aug. 21 for the “Black” line; Sept. 4, for the “Pastel” and “Colorblock Packs” lines, and Nov. 1 for the “Spray” and “Roses” lines. The items will include footwear, apparel, outerwear and accessories ranging in price from $30 for a beanie to $500 for a leather varsity jacket.
