BEYONCE SHARES VIDEO TEASER FOR IVY PARK X ADIDAS COLLECTION: Yesterday (January 8th), Beyonce shared a video and two photos promoting her upcoming Ivy Park x Adidas collection. The new collection arrives on January 18th. In a recent interview with Elle, Bey said about the line, “This new line is fun and lends itself to creativity, the ultimate power. I focused on designing a unisex collection of footwear and apparel because I saw so many men in IVY PARK. The way they have embraced the brand is an unexpected gift. I appreciate the beauty of gender-neutral clothing and breaking the so-called fashion rules. I took a chance on myself when I bought my company back. We all have the confidence in us to take chances and bet on ourselves.”
