Adidas‘ Uniforia collection for Wimbledon fuses key design elements from tennis and soccer, to celebrate the fact that major tournaments in both sports are taking place in London this summer. WTA stars Garbine Muguruza, Angelique Kerber, and Maria Sakkari will promote the new whites at the most prestigious tennis event starting on June 28.

The 2021 Adidas Wimbledon whites feature red accents such as the company logo and “Team Adidas” crests. Ribbed necklines traditionally seen on soccer jerseys pay homage to heritage football designs. Engineered vertical stripes mimic both a football pitch and a grass tennis court.
The 2017 Wimbledon champion Muguruza will sport the Adidas London All-In-One Dress, which looks like a romper from behind, as it features shorts in the back, while the front part is a skirt. It’s an all-in-one piece because it comes with a separate racerback bra and shortie. The neckline and engineered striped pattern are a nod to classic soccer kit design.
For warm-up, WTA players are equipped with the Adidas London Jacket. The outer layer is a sheer woven mesh, while the interior is a knit mesh lining with a subtle print. Side pockets have zippers for secure storage.
At the Bett1Open in Berlin, Muguruza and Kerber debuted a royal blue version of this dress.
Sakkari’s choice are separates: the Adidas London Sleeveless Top and Adidas London Skirt. The top features grasscourt-inspired stripes in the back, while the skirt has them around the hem.
Besides the sleeveless top seen on Sakkari, the new collection also offers the Adidas London Y-Back Tank, a common silhouette in recent collections by the three-stripe brand. For casual training days, there’s this Adidas London Tennis Tank that has “Adidas Tennis” written in the front and “1 vs 1” written in the back.
The Uniforia tennis collection incorporates AEROREADY, absorbent materials designed to wick sweat from players’ bodies, and PRIMEGREEN, a series of high-performance recycled materials that use a minimum of 40% recycled content.
The two-time Grand Slam champion Muguruza commented on her new apparel:
I’m looking forward to stepping onto the court in a collection that represents the togetherness of these sports, with apparel that I know will help me perform at my best. The design is so unique and stylish but also sustainable, ensuring I can make an impact on the game, whilst reducing impact on the environment.
