Putting the crazy zebra period behind, Adidas is ready for Wimbledon with angelically white tennis styles of the London collection that stands out with Climachill technology, giving players a refreshing cooling touch the moment they put their clothes on.
But before I proceed with clothing review, I can’t help but notice that only Angelique Kerber is promoting the Wimbledon outfits. No sight of Ana Ivanovic and Simona Halep? Have they lost their headliner roles?
These new clothes are perfect for the scorching sun, as not only are they plain white, but they also feature a unique trio of leading sports apparel technologies that keep players cool on the court when temperatures soar (hopefully we’ll have that type of weather during Wimbledon).
- 3D aluminium-cooling spheres on the back and neck provide an instant chilling sensation in those warmest parts of the body
- Mesh-like micro fibres wick moisture away
- Revolutionary SubZero flat yarns containing titanium transfer heat away from the body
The world number four Kerber will wear the Adidas Fall Climachill Tank, whose bra offers optional molded cups and an adjustable chest band helping you find a perfect fit, and the Adidas Fall Climachill Skirt with built-in shorts.
Besides white, the London collection clothes can also be found in black, tech steel, and ray red.
When it comes to the Adidas Fall Climachill Dress, most probably to be worn by Ana Ivanovic, just like other Climachill clothes, it is designed for optimal performance in sweltering conditions, while in terms of its visual characteristics, it is a classic racerback style with pleated hem and elastic contrast band at neck.
This time Adidas opted for beautiful simple designs, accentuating performance features. I’m looking forward to seeing what other brands will bring to the table. Even though Wimbledon has strict clothing rules, we all know that we have had a fair share of daring outfits at the grasscourt Grand Slam, like Bethanie Mattek Sands’ notorious white tennis ball jacket.

isn’t this same dress since australian open only different colors. so lazy from adidas and nike as usual. players must be sick of wearing the same all year while giorgi gets cute dress every tournament
This is Venus’ Olympic dress
Sweltering conditions? London? Incredibly unlikely. As for the clothes, very boring and shapeless.
Such a snoozefest
Roberto, thanks for the share. I’m focusing on Wimbledon now, contacting brands to get the exclusive info 😉
I agree, guys, it’s strange that Adidas is advertizing the Climachill technology for London. It would’ve been better suited for the AO. But then again, sports clothes that wick moisture away and cool the body are always a good choice.
This collection looks very basic, but Adidas for USO is fantastic. Did you see?
Of course it’s a “snoozefest”. What can one do with all white? Oh well, let’s see what some of the other lines come out with. Speaking of the “crazy zebra period” noticed on the mens side, Thiem and Zverev have gone to the all black version of the Adidas Y-3 for the grass warm-up tournaments but Mladenovic an Kerber are still wearing the zebra prints on the ladies side.
I like the old fashioned white for tennis clothes, and I think there have been some great designs for Wimbledon – Venus, Sloane Stephens, Serena’s mesh dress, some of the Stella Macartneys – but these Adidas ones are not among them.
Djole, I haven’t seen Adidas for USO. Share the link, please.
I’ve seen Nike for Wimbledon, though. I will post about it tomorrow.
Djole, oh wow, stunning! I love how they reinvented the racerback design, both of the tank and of the dress. The print is also nice.
I live in London and went to play tennis today where temperature was around 18C. Even though the temperature may not be that high with humidity at over 70% today, one actually does appreciate the climachill range.
