I few days ago I showed you a sneak peek at Ana Ivanovic‘s new floral dress and we started speculating whether the Adidas Adizero line has taken a completely different course. Now we have official information, straight from Adidas: at the 2015 French Open, Ivanovic will debut items from Yohji Yamamoto’s collection, together with Jo-Wilfried Tsonga and ball boys and girls.
The Adidas Roland Garros Collection by Y-3 represents the first collaboration between two Adidas brands, combining Y-3’s bold aesthetic with the breakthrough advances of Adidas performance technology. The clothes are beautifully merging Yohji Yamamoto’s signature stark black-and-white look with the Hawaiian floral prints that reference Y-3’s Spring/Summer 2015 collection.
‘Y’ stands for renowned Japanese designer Yohji Yamamoto, the ‘3′ represents Adidas three signature stripes and the ‘-‘ signifies the bond between the two. The line has pushed the boundaries of fashion and sport since 2002, with its avant-garde aesthetic and forward-thinking designs meeting athleticism.
Accessories such as socks, wristbands and tiebands are included in the new range, while the Y-3 Tempaia III shoes reinterpret the brand’s ultra-light Adizero concept, designed to maximize clay court use.
I have always praised Adidas and this surprising move is making me love the brand even more! The Y-3 tennis collection has a luxurious feel and I love the black combined with touches of Hawaiian flowers. The shoes are bomb, while I’m still not a huge fan of the white dress with floral color-blocks. What do you say about this Roland Garros switch?
The collection is available globally on Adidas.com, Y-3.com, Adidas Sport Performance stores, Y-3 stores, Tennis Warehouse US and Tennis Warehouse Europe.
