All eyes will be on Adidas by Stella McCartney players this summer. Leopard print, floral design and seamless knitted fabric make this latest collection the boldest ever by the British designer.
In the early days of her cooperation with Adidas, Stella was all about nudes. In recent years, her style was characterized by colorblocks, perforations, textures and body-hugging fits. Since Stella usually sticks to a certain style for several years, we can assume that this new showstopping wave is here to stay.
Reminding us of Serena Williams’ Nike US Open 2014 dress, the Adidas Summer Stella McCartney Court Dress demands attention with its pink leopard print. Handkerchief hemline is also a novelty in aSMC fashion.
A separate panel at the tank straps has been continued from Stella’s models in the recent months and years, here it’s a contrasting black panel, while previously it stood out with different textures. Have a look at the Adidas Fall 2018 Stella McCartney Tank and last year’s aSMC Wimbledon dress to understand what I’m talking about.
The dramatic dress, which retails at $120, features form-fitting engineered jacquard fabric and Climalite sweat-wicking properties. It also exists in white (reminiscent of Serena’s 2015 Wimbledon dress), so we can expect the white option to be launched at the grasscourt Grand Slam.
The Adidas Summer Stella McCartney Clubhouse Dress is somewhat of an updated version of the designer’s recent styles. Stella likes to create these dresses that seem like something a swimmer would wear and turn them into feminine tennis apparel. Primeknit material with a seamless construction and body-contouring graphics make this A-line dress a futuristic addition to the WTA fashion. The color is night indigo.
The Adidas Summer Stella McCartney Seamless Tank is a tight-fitting tennis top with the feminine touch of body contouring and seasonal floral graphic.
As we can see in this Adidas Summer Stella McCartney Court Skirt, Stella’s signature laser-perforated hem is evolving into a tonal floral design with laser cut perforations that allow air to circulate.
No, Bethanie Mattek-Sands is not working for Adidas, the extravagant American is designing for Lucky in Love! This really is Stella McCartney. The Adidas Summer Stella McCartney Court Tank exists in bold pink and a much more subtle white version. The bra-like detail really reminds me of Fila’s Championships collection that Karolina Pliskova launched at Wimbledon last year.
The Adidas Summer Stella McCartney Court Skirt, just like the leopard dress, features a handkerchief hemline and a new style of elongated perforations.
Stella made sure to equip us with fashion-forward footwear as well. The Adidas SMC Court Boost Shoe in print and the white Adidas SMC Court Boost Shoe.
This week in Indian Wells Stella’s players are still clad in the Parley collection, but we can expect them to debut these outstanding outfits very soon.
Do you think that these outfits are for Roland Garros?
Absolutely love them! Especially the leopard print skirt and shoes!
Thumbs down to this whole collection. And the prices are outrageous!
Melxir, it believe that the outfits are for Roland Garros, while the white versions are for Wimbledon. Although, it’s strange that we have two totally different styles of dresses available in one collection, so I have no idea who will wear what.
I really don’t like the leopard print. I think it is too loud and fussy and it detracts from watching what the player is doing. I like the indigo dress which is simpler. But the tops and skirts are way too fussy with too much detailing: leopard print, florals, stripes, panels, cut outs – it’s like they’re not confident in their designs so they had to put in everything they could think of.
Love them all, with the exception of the florals. Guess they’re trying to catch up to Serena? Let’s see who’ll be bold enough to wear the leopard prints, considering she’s been there and done that moons ago.
