Adidas‘ PRIMEBLUE X HEAT.RDY tennis collection for the 2021 Australian Open takes a step forward as the company’s most sustainable range to date. The ocean is a never-ending source of inspiration, so this year’s Melbourne clothes are based on blue nuances, combined with off-white, greens and vibrant yellow.
Let’s have a look at what Angelique Kerber, Garbine Muguruza and Maria Sakkari will wear at the Grand Slam scheduled to start on February 8.
Adidas is proudly marching towards the goal of completely phasing out the use of virgin polyesters by 2024. The Spring/Summer 2021 tennis clothes integrate more recycled materials than ever before, with top performance and comfort remaining a priority.
The apparel pieces combine PRIMEBLUE and HEAT.RDY fabrics.
- PRIMEBLUE is made in part with Parley Ocean Plastic, i.e. upcycled plastic waste which has been intercepted on remote islands, beaches, coastal communities and shorelines, preventing it from polluting the ocean.
- HEAT.RDY is an advanced lightweight fabric designed for rapid sweat distribution to maximize airflow and keep athletes dry in hot weather conditions.
Kerber and Sakkari present the yellow Adidas Y-Tank PRIMEBLUE x HEAT.RDY and green Match Skirt PRIMEBLUE x HEAT.RDY.
As you can see, the tank is all about mesh and its elastic Y-straps feature laser cutouts.
Both the tank and the skirt use a minimum of 40% recycled content, just as all PRIMEBLUE pieces.
The footwear in the collection is in the latest “Solar Yellow” colorway.
On Kerber we can see the new Adizero Ubersonic 4 tennis shoes. The model is built for speed, employing fresh technologies to provide uncompromising agility. Sakkari is seen wearing the Adidas SoleMatch Bounce.
Muguruza sports the Y-Dress PRIMEBLUE x HEAT.RDY, a design that reminds me of the famous Adidas jumpsuit from the 2018 Australian Open. This 2-in-1 piece features a large cutout on the back and a perforated skirt.
The yellow bra and elastic waistband in the back contrast the navy dress.
Muguruza’s version of the SoleCourt tennis shoe is adapted to the Spaniard’s specific preferences and is not available for purchase.
The new Adidas gear is available at both Tennis Warehouse USA and Tennis Warehouse Europe.
(Gosh I miss Woz, that yellow-navy dress does not help)
I like these outfits, I’m kinda disappointed that they seem like “déjà vu” though.
Gin, Muguruza’s dress is really a déjà vu, but I don’t mind it at all, because that jumpsuit is one of my all-time favorite outfits. Yellow and blue have traditionally performed best at the Australian Open.
No Stella 😢
Definitely a bit of deja vu but nice none the less
I think Adidas always put out their best collection for Australia. Its always the most simple and sporty and summery.
I dont love the green and yellow I wish they would have just stuck to the blue and yellow but nice none the less
Andy, the yellow mesh tank also exists in beautiful light blue. Instead of that olive skirt I would’ve preferred a light blue skirt. But as you said, green is also nice.
Kinda wish Ivanovic is still playing, she represent the best Adidas for the dress especially!
Omg! Stella Mccartney is not going to be part of Adidas anymore?
Also I want to say that I love your blog!
Cincy Nicole, thank you! No mention of aSMC. However, Adidas is about to reveal SS21 Parley Capsule Collection in a few days. I’m waiting to get info from them.
I’m glad you like my blog 🙂 Thank you!
Do you know if there will be new release(s) for SoleCourt model for women?
I only see SoleCourt for men for AO21.
Miya, sorry, I don’t have such information. Everything I got from Adidas is written in this article and they will also reveal the Parley collection soon.
The ladies’ dresses were nice. The shirt worn by Zverev will degenerate dressing fashion on the courts. Reminds me of the rickshaw pullers of the 1950s
Zverev’s shirt is reminiscent of the shirts worn by rickshaw pullers. Terrible degradation of fashion in the courts
What’s up with Adidas not making SoleCourt shoe for women only men?
Karen, I don’t have that information. They just sent me details about the apparel and shoes they’ve released.
