The adidas Roland Garros Collection by Y-3 fuses the Sport Style ethos of Y-3 with the technical expertise of adidas Tennis. Now adidas Y-3 releases a short video dedicated to the collection which shows Ana Ivanovic and Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, two of the world’s leading tennis players, wearing the collection for the first time on the court.
In the video Yohji Yamamoto speaks about his passion for fusing sport with fashion. About the collection, he shared, “We wanted to make something new, something exciting, something people didn’t expect. A new movement in tennis. To compete is very tough – with Y-3 we wanted to win.”
Throughout the course of the tournament — which begins on May 24th and continues through June 7th — Ana and Jo will impact the game in the pioneering adidas Roland Garros Collection by Y-3. The collection combines Y-3’s bold aesthetic with the breakthrough advances of adidas Performance and marks the first time Y-3 will be worn by athletes during play.
The collection is available globally on adidas.com, adidas Sport Performance stores, Y-3.com and Y-3 stores as well as tennis specialty retailers.
