Best of Adidas’ French Open Tennis Fashion for Thiem, Tsonga, Kerber
An update, if you please, on the adidas French Open designs! Paris is the fashion capital of the world, and adidas is ready for the season’s second slam. These looks are available at TW/Europe. (We teased this line a bit here and the Stella McCartney sub-brand is here.)
These are a few of our favorite styles for men and women. First off, the men, and the entire line is here. There’s also a new RG sneaker style. Take a look!
adidas Men’s Roland Garros Crew
This shirt has a nice, spare look. It comes in three versions, including a green/white two-tone style. Note the cool trim that runs around the sleeves and the hem. The top also features the name Roland Garros printed on the back neck taping and a heat transfer adidas logo at right chest. Shirt is 100% Poly, and comes in Core Green w/Night Grey & White (see it below on Dominic Thiem) )…Night Grey w/White & Core Green….and White w/Black & Core Green. Get it here.
adidas Men’s Roland Garros Polo
The two-tone continues. Green has been popular on the tours this year, but the designers get a trendy pass on these since green is prominent in the tournament color scheme. 100% Recycled Polyester double knit. I long for the days of Fila’s Egyptian cotton, but that ship has sailed. Two color schemes: Core Green w/Night Grey & White….and Night Grey w/White. Get it here.
adidas Men’s Roland Garros Jacket
Here’s the jacket to match the polo shown above- and it has the same front/back contrast. Core Green in front, and Night Grey in the back. The RG logo is right up front , and they say there’s an adidas logo on the right sleeve, but I can’t spot it. The jacket is made of 100% Polyester French terry, and features color blocking, full-zip entry, side pockets, and multi-color ribbed cuffs. Get it here.
adidas Men’s Roland Garros Graphic Stripe T-Shirt
I like this one a lot. Two questions, though: why five stripes and not the obvious three? I like the “Since 1973” along the hem, but what does that mean? I can only guess it means that’s how long the brand and the tournament have had a deal, and that’s a long time. This shirt comes in the color scheme shown. This is a 70% Cotton, 30% Polyester combo. Get it here.
Adidas has also rolled out an RG shoe for men- again, only at TW/Europe so far:
adidas Adizero Ubersonic 2 Clay Green/White Men’s Shoe
This version features the Roland Garros logo to celebrate this year’s second major! adidas’ flagship lightweight shoe takes another step forward with the introduction of their signature Primeknit technology to the line. The lightweight knit bootie molds to your foot and provides a natural fit and feel while at the same time offering support in all directions. The SprintFrame construction reinforces the lightweight upper for extra support and stability, especially during lateral movements. Get it here.
