A month ago we had a sneak peek at Caroline Wozniacki‘s new dress by Stella McCartney, most probably created for the French Open, and now we can have a closer look at the item, as it has become available at retail and the official promotional photo has been released.
The Adidas Summer Stella McCartney Barricade Dress combines color-blocks and flowers, design elements that Stella really likes to use. As for the touch of flowers on skirt, this time they have a special twist, being a combination of print and embroidery. In the promo photo, Caro is wearing the light pink Adidas Stella Barricade 2015 shoes.
I loved Stella’s green spring dress, but there are so many things I don’t like about this summer item. The shade of yellow doesn’t do it for me, I’m not a fan of how the flowers are executed and the color-block is very unflattering, especially the back part which looks like leakage. Maybe I will have a better impression of the dress when I see it in action, but I doubt that it has a chance of reaching the status of a favorite.
To give the Adidas Summer Barricade collection full justice, I have to mention that it does feature some nice pieces, like this glacial and light pink tank that goes nicely with this white flared skirt (the silver embroidered design on sides fits this skirt much better than the dress).
For warm-up we have the Adidas Summer Stella McCartney Barricade LS Top, which I still can’t decide if I hate or find OK, but I can certainly say that the pale pink spring version of the item is more beautiful.
Fans of basic looks have the option of wearing the Adidas Summer Stella McCartney Barricade Top in amber yellow and desert sand.
