Inspired by tennis’ 70s-era superstars – their fearless attitudes and their bold senses of personal style – Pharrell developed a simple plan, remix the most iconic looks into a new tennis collection informed by the latest breakthroughs in adidas technology, such as adidas Climacool.
This is a range of clothing, accessories, and footwear that brings a cool, colorful, and sophisticated spirit to the world of tennis apparel. The collection explores two distinct motifs – primary colour-block and off-white pin stripe. These elements are paired with fully-fashioned, engineered knitwear that boasts surprising details.
The US Open is such an exciting tournament for me. Last year I not only won the tournament for the first time, but also won the WTA World Number 1 ranking – reaching an achievement that I have dreamed of since I started playing tennis. To come back and play in a dress from such an exciting collection and collaboration is really special and I can’t wait to show my love for the city of New York on the court -Angelique Kerber
