Featuring Stella McCartney’s signature design touches of precise cuts and sleek silhouettes, the collection takes a fresh approach to the traditional Wimbledon all whites, with camo inspired prints and contrasting red accent hues designed to make a statement on court.

The perfect fusion of fashion and high-tech performance , the collection includes 17 pieces engineered to meet the demands of players at the top of their game. Pieces including the adidas by Stella McCartney Court Dress and adidas by Stella McCartney Court Zip Tee feature seamless knit design and lightweight materials with placed perforations and laser cut holes for maximum breathability. The men’s collection also features a tailored FreeLift construction for a supportive fit, enabling a dynamic range of motion on court.

The collection was created using a range of innovative methods and materials including:

Dope Dye Technology : a method that creates less water waste by adding colour directly into the material mix at the initial stage of production. Therefore, when the fibre is formed, it is already the desired colour and as a result, reduces waste water by at least 10 litres per garment.

Recycled Polyester: a synthetic fibre made from waste material such as plastic bottles and used garments that is cleaned and reprocessed into new fibres.

Parley Ocean Plastic: a material created from upcycled plastic waste that was intercepted from beaches & coastal communities before reaching the ocean, which is then made into yarn.

Angelique Kerber comments: “I’m ready to return to London and defend my title at Wimbledon, I just love the tradition of it. I am proud to be wearing the new adidas by Stella McCartney Tennis Collection on court this year, it was created using technology which saves water waste and features fabrics which keep me cool and comfortable, really delivering on my dynamic performance needs.”
