Finish lifestyle brand Marimekko and German sportwear giant Adidas have released their Fall/Winter 2021 collection inspired by never-ending movements of nature. The versatile activewear spans from tennis, swimwear, and cycling to shoes and accessories.
For seven decades, Marimekko’s bold prints have portrayed the spirit of Helsinki, becoming an emblem for the capital of Finland. Textures, shades and iconic patterns that represent the ever-changing nature and different seasons are now joining forces with Adidas’ classic silhouettes and top-performance technology.

The Marimekko x Adidas tennis apparel is dominated by Maija Isola’s legendary Unikko (poppy) pattern from 1964.
The Adidas Marimekko Dress showcases the iconic print in Adidas’ classic Y-back dress that flares into a flattering A-shape. The item is made with Primeblue, an advanced recycled fabric that includes Parley Ocean Plastic.
The Adidas Marimekko Tank and Skirt comprise another outfit that combines the sportwear manufacturer’s recognizable silhouette with the Finnish design brand’s eye-catching print.
It’s been a while since Adidas last offered a shrug. The last one I can recall was in the 2020 New York collection. Marimekko is now bringing back this bold piece of clothing to fine-tune your on-court coverage with UPF 50 sun protection. The Adidas Marimekko Shrug has raglan sleeves, breathable mesh side panels and a gold metallic design element on the back.
Back and better than ever, Adidas brings the updated Barricade women’s tennis shoe in a new black/gold/carbon color combination with subtle Unikko pattern.
Other Adidas footwear favorites, such as the Ubersonic 4 and Defiant Generation, are also offered in a slick black and gold look that matches the exclusive collaboration with Marimekko.
The Adidas x Marimekko drop that reconnect two icons of design in the ultimate collection of high-performance staples is available at Tennis Warehouse USA.
