SINGAPORE – Remember that mall along Orchard Road where queues formed with customers eagerly awaiting to take photos with shirtless male models a decade ago? It is now taken over by Adidas Homeground, sans naked bodies, of course.
Knightsbridge, the three-storey mall, now houses the Adidas Singapore Brand Centre making it the largest mono-brand retail sports destination in Singapore. A new retail store? The Adidas Homeground will give you second thoughts that Singapore's brick-and-mortar retail scene is dying. Here's why.
The largest one-stop fitness offering
Imagine having limited-edition exclusives, the latest and most extensive array of footwear, apparel and accessories under one roof. Also, look out for the range of shoes and apparel unique to SEA and only available at the Adidas Homeground.
Fitsters, the latest UltraBoost 22 and ZX 5K Boost, will also be up for grabs at Homeground. Did you know that the UltraBoost 22 is created by an all-women team, tapping on women-specific insights? The ZX 5K Boost, on the other hand, presents the next level of comfort with the mesh inserts. In addition, the ZX 5K Boost creates an ode to the always-evolving ZX legacy with a bold, retro-futuristic silhouette.
Singapore’s very own T-shirt
Love to make a statement with your tees? Then, be sure to bring home the Adidas Singapore’s very own Key City Tee – packed with little nostalgia-filled nuggets of all the things we love about Singapore.
In line with today’s trigger happy crowd, no brick and mortar retail experience is complete without that instagrammable art piece to complete your in-person shopping experience. The massive store has been meticulously designed with plenty of hyperlocal elements, such as the Singapore River, the East Coast Park, the void deck and of course, our local cuisine. These art installations were created by local artists such as Terence Woon, Pamela Ting, Jessica Wong from Scene Shang, and more.
Adidas Signapore's Country Manager, Mr Petr Stastny adds, "As the first Brand Centre in Singapore, the design of HOMEGROUND is deeply rooted in the Singapore identity, and celebrates the diversity as a multicultural country. By taking inspiration from the daily life of Singaporeans – from jogging along the Singapore River and east coast park, to patterns from shophouses tiles, the void deck, and local delights – the designs would resonate with the locals across the rhythms of sports, nature, and life."
Get inspired by local talents and celebrities, such as homegrown musician Benjamin Kheng, national high jumper and SEA Games record holder for High Jump, Michelle Sng; professional footballer Jacob Mahler; female jiu-jitsu practitioner and World Champion Constance Lien; MMA champion, Amir Khan; as well as national track and field athlete and Olympian, Shanti Pereira. Be clued in to their personal stories and how they overcome their creative and athletic blocks via the 3D LED Screen at Knightsbridge façade from January 2022.
According to Mr Stastny, "We will also continue to look to co-creating experiences with professional athletes, global icons and community partners in the form of panel talks, presentations, and workshops to inspire them to make the impossible, possible."
