The lone outsider brand at Copenhagen Fashion Week, Adidas used the progressive design experience to showcase some of their Originals collection, which include their more fashion-forward, less performance-concerned clothes.

Fingerless gloves even found their way into Adidas' showcase, suggesting they'll be a mainstay in the upcoming New York, London, Milan and Paris fashion weeks.
