Upper Playground x adidas Originals: Herbert Baglione Acclaimed Brazilian fine artist Herbert Baglione collaborates with Upper Playground on a limited-edition adidas Originals sneaker. Hailing from Sao Paulo, Baglione is highly respected and recognized within the industry as well as throughout South America and Europe. He is known for his strong minimalist and simplistic approach to painting. According to Baglione, the basis of his work is addressing the coldness and competitiveness present in people. He likes to be ironic about things such as individuality and death, and the paths chosen to either achieve these experiences or distance oneself from it. â€šÃ„ÃºMy sneaker design expresses my personal taste in shoes. I don’t like colorful tennis shoes that are full of designs or anything that I feel is more than necessary. I believe being simple ends up being more challenging,” commented Baglione about his vision for his Centennial Lo sneaker design.
