September 26, 2022, Beijing – The House Collective’s The Opposite House in Beijing announces SUPERFLY’s selection as one of only 11 restaurants for global sports behemoth Adidas Originals’ adilicious campaign. Celebrating SUPERFLY’s cult status amongst Beijing’s youth scene, the collaboration sees Adidas Originals and SUPERFLY work together to reimagine one of the brand’s iconic pairs of sneakers, with a limited-edition run of 880 pairs to be released on September 23.

SUPERFLY’s unique identity and strong community influence made it the clear choice for adilicious – the sole hotel restaurant picked. Both destination restaurant and urban social hangout, the eclectic Chinese bistro celebrates and elevates Sichuan’s buzzed-about “fly restaurants” – casual eateries famously known for their delicious Sichuan cuisine and the go-to hangout place for locals.

Central to the partnership is the limited-edition sneaker drop, which draws on the style concept of SUPERFLY – creatively combining retro elements with future ideas. As a restaurant known for its bold design, the blue and white squares patterned on the shoe nod to SUPERFLY’s tiling, while splashes of orange-red mimic the terrazzo dining tables.

Available in Beijing via select retail stores as well as Adidas’ dedicated app – CONFIRMED. Through the CONFIRMED app, the limited-edition Forum Low SUPERFLY will be available for the Chinese mainland market starting Friday, September 23 and ending on Tuesday, September 27. For the global market, pre-order opens on Wednesday, September 28.

Olivier Dumonceaux, The Opposite House General Manager, comments, "SUPERFLY is a creative restaurant with a unique imprint of Chinese culture. It retains many nostalgic elements of the 70s and 80s, while capturing the daily life of today’s younger generation. This adilicious collaboration with Adidas Originals is yet another effort to build closer relationships with the city’s young, fashionable, and trendy community, and by combining with new perspectives of athletics and fashion, we are able to vividly convey the energy of a street culture that’s full of local spirit and attitude."

Since its opening in 2020, The Opposite House’s SUPERFLY has strived to create a locally-rooted experience that resonates on the global scene. As the "House of Art,” The Opposite House is a destination for the capital's culture makers. Blending fashion and art in its DNA, The House features buzzed-about happenings from fashionable high tea that culls inspiration from the designers' creation, to pop-up stores featuring sought-after luxury brands. In tandem with the unveiling of the collaboration with Adidas Originals, SUPERFLY will house a creative installation at the restaurant from September 24 to October 24, 2022.  

Teresa Muk, Swire Hotels Head of Brand and Strategic Marketing, notes, "This creative collaboration between SUPERFLY and Adidas Originals fully demonstrates The House Collective’s 'think differently' motto. This partnership’s significance goes beyond providing guests with an exceptional dining experience, but also reflects the brand’s multiculturality, and popularity as a lively social space. These sneakers also bring to life our artistic expression with their pioneering design, echoing our artistic pursuit for continuous innovation. We hope to be able to tap into and showcase the perspective of the younger generation through taste and food culture with this partnership. With a strong urban atmosphere and bold design, SUPERFLY has always been an exemplary reflection of the ongoing pursuit of art in The House Collective."

Starting today, the limited-edition SUPERFLY x Adidas sneaker will retail at RMB899 (approximately USD128), and be available exclusively at select Adidas stores in Beijing, as well as through the Adidas CONFIRMED APP.
