Muguruza, Wozniacki’s new Adidas by Stella McCartney for Wimbledon
Adidas by Stella McCartney Barricade ‘s Wimbledon tennis fashions are part of the line’s Fall/Winter 2016 collection and are defined by cutting-edge materials and minimalist shapes. The season’s two key looks, which feature carefully placed mesh structures and breathable fabrics, will be worn by new French Open champion Garbiñe Muguruza and Caroline Wozniacki on the grass.
I like this look for both of them- it gives off a very gentle tech vibe in stark white with rows and rows of laser cut fabric that create a modern day version of lace. Stella/adidas have put a lot of effort into these it seems. Karin always admires the Stella adidas fit and consistently remarks on McCartney’s expertise in carving out a beautiful figure. She especially loves Garbiñe’s kit here.
Muguruza will showcase an elegant tank/skort combination. The slim-fit Tank in White features a racerback construction with mesh inserts at the back for ultimate ventilation, whilst cooling ClimaLite fabric draws sweat away from the skin between sets. The Tank will be paired with the matching Skort in White, which features the above mentioned laser cut holes for both breathability and style.
Designed with ClimaCool for temperature regulation, and complete with built-in tights for added support (Stella is now including these), the skort’s exposed herringbone elastic waistband perfectly matches the engineered structure of the tank for a streamlined and stylish finish.
“Playing in the final of last year’s Wimbledon was a dream come true. I am thrilled to be back this year feeling especially confident my adidas by Stella McCartney Barricade outfit will support me during every match,” said Garbine.
(We’ve seen Australian champion Angie Kerber’s adidas look here; the other top players, Ivanovic and Halep, seem missing from this year’s marketing. Winning a Slam moves you up in the preview hierarchy, it seems.)
“As a British designer, reinterpreting Wimbledon’s traditions is both a welcomed challenge and an honour. This Barricade collection celebrates the tournament’s heritage alongside contemporary influences supported by cutting-edge technology,” said Stella McCartney
Wozniacki will take on her opponents wearing the adidas by Stella McCartney Barricade Dress. New for Fall/Winter 2016, this feminine silhouette is engineered using a knit cut with open-hole mesh structures, creating targeted breathability zones. Designed to provide a slim-fit finish, the Dress features ClimaCool technology to ensure superior temperature regulation set after set.
“I am so excited to be stepping out on court again. I can’t wait to debut my new adidas by Stella McCartney Barricade Dress, designed specifically for Wimbledon. It perfectly complements the all-white tradition with razor-sharp technology to ensure I play at the top of my game,” says Caroline.
Each head-to-toe look is completed with a visor in white/collegiate navy and wristbands in white/collegiate navy/light granite to keep both players focused on their game when it matters the most.
Both athletes will wear the Barricade 2016 shoe in White/White/Bright Gold, designed for supreme maneuverability and on-court dominance during play. Used for the first time in a Barricade shoe, engineered mesh uppers and an internal bootie construction provide ultimate comfort, while internal fit straps offer extra stability for side to side movements.
Karin loves this tennis tennis shoe because it is lightweight and sleek looking, a perfect fit with high end tennis whites.
