Rita Ora, the aspiring pop star who's yet to become more popular in America for her music than her style, has collaborated with Adidas on a capsule collection, out today. It's been a long time coming, as news of the collab first broke last fall, and, if you're a fan of Rita's peacock-like style then the wait paid off. There's sorbet-colored shoes, a varsity-style beanie, and a jumpsuit that will make you look like you just stepped out of the video for Rita's collaborative song with Iggy Azalea "Black Widow"—which, as far as jumpsuits go, could be a lot worse. It's hard to be mad at ass-kicking attire.
But the real crown jewel of the lot is the soulmate to Kanye's leather jogging pant, a faux leather sports bra. As if that wasn't enough to behold, Rita went ahead and jazzed it up with patches. I'm not saying that Rita is on Kanye's design #godlevel but it's hard to imagine Ye wouldn't get behind this. It prioritizes style over function—much like his Maison Martin Margiela masks, tattered Margiela pants, and abominable sneakers—and it's one of those creations that only exists for people with expendable income who like purchasing ironic shit just for the fun of it like an Alexander Wang jump rope or $1,025 dumbells. Maybe next time Rita and Kanye can team up on some leather biking shorts and leather pajamas. It's not entirely outside of the realm of possibility since they're both working with Adidas. In the meantime, Rita Ora's collection will at least serve as another distraction from the fact that she also makes music—and her continually-delayed sophomore album is still on the way.
Check out a few pieces from Rita's capsule collection below and see the whole thing over at Adidas' website.
