Snoop Dogg, Dev Hynes, Stormzy, Mabel, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Brandon Ingram, Petra Collins, Gonz and Lucas Puig, among others, appear in this piece (titled Original Is Never Finished) directed by Terence Neale of RSA as adidas Originals re-interprets its own classics and now turns to a new generation of creators, inspiring them to redefine the meaning of originality.
