At this week’s Bett1Open, Grand Slam champions Angelique Kerber and Garbine Muguruza refreshed the tennis fashion scene with a soccer-inspired Adidas design that combines a dress and a romper. This introduction of a new outfit comes as a surprise, because other WTA players, including some sponsored by Adidas, entered the grasscourt season in their Roland Garros apparel.
Kerber and Muguruza debuted the Adidas London All-In-One Dress as they recorded straightforward victories in the opening round of the grasscourt event in Berlin on Tuesday. The silhouette is specific as the front looks like a pleated skirt while the back are shorts. The romper dress is a complete package with separate racerback bra and tights included.
The color is team royal blue. The vertical stripes evoke the lines on a grass court or football pitch. The neckline is inspired by soccer, but we can say that the entire design reminds of soccer jerseys.
The item also exists in white with scarlet Adidas logos at center chest and back right leg hem. I’ll present the white pieces in more detail in a separate post dedicated to Wimbledon fashion.
Adidas’ PRIMEGREEN pieces are made from recycled materials. AEROREADY technology is there to absorb moisture and keep players dry.
For those who prefer separates, Adidas offers the London Y-Back Tank in this same style.
