Adidas has revealed outfits that Garbine Muguruza, Angelique Kerber, Kristina Mladenovic and Maria Sakkari will wear at the 2021 French Open. In this latest collection ready for Paris, the company refreshes its offer with a bold bodysuit and iridescent hues. Moreover, besides using recycled fabrics, Adidas continues to make advancements in sustainability by employing a water-saving dyeing process.
Just as a number of previous collections, this one has been created with PRIMEBLUE, a high-performance recycled material that includes Parley Ocean Plastic, as part of Adidas’ commitment to completely phase out the use of virgin polyesters by 2024. The novelty in this collection are more sustainable dye technologies that save up to 60% of the water and energy traditionally used.
The most outstanding item in the collection is the Adidas Prime Blue Dope Dye Bodysuit. It’s a new silhouette in the company’s tennis offer with a snug fit that won’t move around while you’re playing. It features an iridescent sheen that appears to change color with every movement on court.
The collection blends just four pigments – red, blue, black and white – to expertly craft the purple, blue and grey colors, complemented by base tones of black and white. The layered materials make up the different shades to give the garments an iridescent look.
Garbine Muguruza, who paired the edgy bodysuit with a matching purple skirt for the photoshoot, explained why she prefers Adidas apparel:
What you wear on court has a significant impact on your game. Fit, feel, and performance is essential, but sustainability is something that is often overlooked. What goes into creating clothing is something I specifically look at first when choosing my tennis gear.
The Adidas Prime Dope Dye Match Skirt features a glittery elastic waistband, iridescent fabric, and built-in ball tight.
Angelique Kerber and Maria Sakkari are both wearing the black version of the Adidas Prime Dope Dye Dress.
The dress also exists in scarlet with contrasting Y-tank straps.
Adidas’ footwear silhouettes have been updated with the same purple and blue tones, tactically placed to highlight key technical details on the shoes and completing the head-to-toe iridescent look of the full collection.
WTA players including Kristina Mladenovic will wear the Adizero Ubersonic 4, which brings the latest technologies to the court for uncompromising agility, enabling players to respond to a game that’s faster than ever.
Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2021 French Open has been pushed back by one week. The new dates are from May 30 to June 13, with qualifying taking place the week before.
