Wimbledon. It’s the tennis tournament that warrants strawberries, cream and Pimm’s as a staple dietary requirement, transforms Murray Mount into a pilgrimage-worthy destination, and unveils…sexy, streamlined silhouettes by Stella?!
Yes, that’s right Hip and Healthies, from catwalk to court, the Stella McCartney for adidas AW14 collection barricade for Fall/ Winter 14 makes its exclusive debut on centre court as featured on brand ambassadors Caroline Wozniacki, Maria Kirilenko and Andrea Petkovic for their upcoming matches.
Sporting striking, stand-out style, the wonderful Wimbledon women will wear all-white, ultra-feminine separates and one-piece dresses to ensure that they wow not only by their tennis talent, but their superior style standards.
And don’t think that practicality is compromised. Strategically structured with open and closed mesh fabrics and textures, the designs ensure ultimate security, flexibility and ventilation. Each piece is engineered to ensure 100% performance, yet, true to Stella McCartney tradition, each intricate detail certifies the collection as timeless.
Be prepared to be dazzled by Caroline Wozniacki, who is due to present the limited edition cropped spacer fabric Bomber Jacket in White and flattering Dress with fit-and-flare bi-tonal pleats in a Wimbledon exclusive. With effortless seam construction and ClimaLITE technology, as featured in all items in the collection, Wozniacki is confident that the style will not only aid her game, but radiate true, innovative athletic vitality. She says: ‘This season’s adidas by Stella McCartney barricade collection is amazing. It doesn’t only look great, but the functionality of each piece is outstanding. I love the bomber jacket and femininity of my dress; the collection gives me the confidence I need to focus on nothing else but my performance – which ultimately, is what every professional tennis player wants.’
Similarly, Maria Kirilenko will debut the elbow-sleeved Tee to flatter her flawless feminine physique while Andrea Petkovic will exhibit the sleeveless, collared Tank, designed with a supportive yet sexy racer back and playful asymmetric ruffling to allow beautiful movement during each serve. Both women are due to celebrate the new Skort in White, designed with flirty flyaways to establish the collection as no less than cutting-edge.
Maria comments, “adidas by Stella McCartney barricade allows me to feel confident on court, every time. It is the perfect combination of performance and style, and the all-white collection for Wimbledon is stunning – the different texture combinations look amazing, but they’re also perfect for keeping cool when you need it most.”
But Stella McCartney doesn’t stop there. Never to miss an opportunity, the barricade footwear with barricade 8 tooling complements the clothing line to perfection. By providing weightless comfort, agility and buoyancy, these shoes are carefully created to allow acute receptiveness on court. Of course, the ensemble would not be complete without seasonal accessories such as an on-court tennis bag and visor; and as ever, Stella delivers.
