adidas by Stella McCartney Unveils French Open tennis outfits for Muguruza and Wozniacki
adidas by Stella McCartney has unveiled the striking new Barricade SS17 Roland Garros collection and I love it all! The kits are set to be worn on court by defending champion Garbiñe Muguruza and Caroline Wozniacki in Paris this May 22 – June 11. The collection fuses classic tennis styles with the latest innovations in performance footwear and apparel. It is sure to be a big hit.
Eager to show it off, Wozniacki wore her French Open outfit in Miami and expressed her excitement over the fact that its colors matched her nationalities. Check out her two piece set below. It’s the adidas Stella McCartney Sleeveless polo and pleated skirt.
In a nod to the French Open’s union of establishment and modernity, the adidas by Stella McCartney Barricade SS17 collection plays on the sophisticated style of traditional tennis attire, combined with high performance technologies designed for today’s modern tennis player. Taking inspiration from iconic tennis imagery, feminine pleats and playful cuts are reimagined with a clean, contemporary approach – and infused with a bold color palette with sleek lines for a truly modern on-court style.
“I enjoyed playing at Roland Garros so much last year and I am so excited to return to the courts where I celebrated my first Grand Slam win. As it is such a happy and emotional memory, I find myself reflecting on last year as I prepare for this year’s tournament. This is why I connect so much to the design story of my Barricade Roland Garros dress and its nod to tournaments gone by.”
“Following last year, it means a lot to return to Roland Garros this year. I plan to approach the tournament with more fight and energy than ever. I’m going to give it everything I’ve got and will definitely be grateful for the Clima technologies and energy boost tailored into my sportswear.”
