Another fashion retrospection, another first-time honor. Women's Tennis Blog's apparel overviews date back to 2007 and on Sunday I featured Nike representative Petra Kvitova for the first time. Now let's have a look at one more hot player of 2011, new Top 10 member – Adidas-clad Andrea Petkovic.
We opened this season's fashion retrospections with Caroline Wozniacki and Adidas by Stella McCartney, but let's check out a more sporty Adidas – the colorful Barricade.
Petkovic opened the season with a runner-up finish to Petra Kvitova at Brisbane in an all-pink ensemble, and continued it by reaching the Australian Open quarterfinals switching two outfits from the Barricade line which was all about the refreshing green and red, and white. Have a look at my 2011 Australian Open fashion focus, Justine Henin and Maria Kirilenko also looked great wearing the line.
As you can see, for the most part of the season the world No.10 Petkovic was wearing the red, green and white collection, constantly moving back and forth from tanks to V-neck shirts to collars and combining them with all the available skirts.
When this Barricade collection was introduced I was super excited, because a lot of players were wearing it and it added so much color to the sunny tennis courts.
Later in the season Adidas continued with colors, this time pink and blue, and once again there were tanks, polos and regular short-sleeve shirts.
For Wimbledon the brand went for white with pink and blue details.
Adidas hit the mark with all the 2011 Barricade collections. The colors were refreshing and there was a rich variety of designs – skirts, shorts, tanks, tops, polos – for everyone's taste.
What do you think of Andrea Petkovic's style? Do you like the Adidas Barricade line?
