Adidas Detail Huge Plans For Beyonce Partnership / Reveal Star Is Building New Team

Published: Saturday 27th Apr 2019 by Sam

Neither Beyonce nor Adidas are playing any games when it comes to their newly announced partnership.

Revealed to much excitement last month, the venture – which includes a relaunch of Bey’s Ivy Park imprint – is said to have been a long while in the making.

And now, per a highly placed exec at the sportswear giant, details about the colossal project are being divulged.

Full story below…

In a telling interview with Footwear News, Christine Sheeshan, senior director, brand marketing, Adidas Originals North America opened up about what the goals are.

First thing’s first, it’s confirmed that the relationship will be similar to that of Yeezy where it’s positioned as a standalone label (outside of the Adidas traditional categories).

Queen Bey will notably be setting up her own team dedicated to the venture to work alongside Adidas – with possible locations including LA and Portland, Oregon (home of Adidas North America).

Per Sheeshan, the driving forces behind the revitalised Ivy Park will be style, substance, and an overarching a message of empowerment for women, shattering cultural ceilings and much more.

Here’s exactly what she shared:

“Beyonce, we look to her to be the next [Pharrell and West]. And it’s nice to have someone from a female lens to push the brand in that space. She’ll have a whole new team. I know she has two big ambitions — one is more on the philanthropic side of things; we’ve pushed a lot into the world of girls in sports, and she aligns with that. I think that’s one of the reasons she was attracted to our brand.

“I know that she has a lot of product ambitions — she’s creating a whole new team. I’m not sure if it’ll be in Portland or L.A. She’ll live outside of Originals much like Kanye. We’re focused on barriers to creativity — we’ll even push further into those verticals.”

The insights come after it was revealed that Adidas shares rose following their Beyonce announcement.

Exciting times!

      It’s hilarious watching the clowns clutching at speculation, misinformation and fake news. They run to the news feeds to hate on Beyoncé and say she’s bleaching her skin – but for as much time as they spend studying her they fail to notice that Beyoncé IS naturally light skinned) any photo of her from childhood proves this) and the rest is post production filters, photo editing and lights.

      It’s the same as Ari and Gaga getting darker depending on the Event/shoot/era – are they using skin darkening pills and creams? It’s called bronzer and a sunbed.

    It will be interesting to see what Adidas and Beyonce do with Ivy Park and I wonder if she will work as hard on the music or if her sights are set on building this brand…we will see.

  4. Ty April 27, 2019

    This blog attracts some crazed lunatics when it comes to Beyonce. Anyway this is another achievement in happy to hear its a standalone separate from Adidas. It’s good to see woman of colour getting these opportunities her a Rihanna really paving the way.

  5. Gurlwepa89 April 27, 2019

    She’s pushing 40 and can’t not her hustle. Since musically she can’t make waves like she used to.

  6. I love Big Black Cox April 27, 2019

    Just so u know Rita Ora had Adidas partnership long time ago before Beyonce. So somebody is always two steps behind.

  7. Fentybeauty April 27, 2019

    Beyonce is below Riri and Gaga’s level

    Anti sold more than Homecoming
    Joanne sold more than Homecoming

  8. RollingInTheDeep April 27, 2019

    Adidas should have picked bigger and more popular artist like Adele over beyonce. Adele looks better wearing Adidas shoes than beyonce

    Adele 21>>>>>>> Beyonce entire discography

    Her people love to make thing huge before it can prove itself. Beyonce is overhyped. She should call Ciara for some
    Women empow campaigns because beyonce cant sell me anything cool like some yeezys or rihannna pumas.
