adidas Roland Garros Collections

The count down to the French Open is on and we are ready to outfit you in everything you could possibly need to be Roland Garros ready!

 

Ana Ivanovic will be sporting the adidas Roland Garros collection this year in Paris. The collection is complete with two color ways available in two tops (one tank, one cap sleeve), a skirt, a dress, and wristbands to complete the look. This years collection features some fun colors that pop and are perfect for the clay court season. These pieces have the signature adidas ClimaCool technology, contrast piped colors, lacey/frilled layered designs and the Roland Garros logo. The whole collection is full of really fun colors that will look great on and off the court. And I must say, I am loving the wristbands that match perfectly!

Dressed to impress at Wimbledon

When it comes to Wimbledon, there’s always a sure bet: The apparel will be predominantly white. Though some may argue that mostly white apparel is boring, I enjoy the tradition of tennis so it’s refreshing to see. I also like to see how tennis apparel designers step up to the plate.

In the other Slams, designers can rely on color to make a big splash. For example, the so called “Darth Fed” look of US Opens past where he wore an all black ensemble for his night matches. Or take a look at any of Rafa’s outfits from the recent past. They look great but are awash in color. A no-no on the Wimbledon grass. Instead designers need to focus on the details, whether it be fit, fabric or strategic, restrained use of color.

There are some definite successes on the grass this year. Let’s take a look at a few dresses because Wimbledon is all about tradition, after all, and what’s more traditional than a tennis dress?

This was what we saw Ana Ivanovic wear on court, sadly for one match only. This dress has a few things going for it. The pop of color under the bustline offers a slimming effect, which is always a welcome design feature. The mesh isn’t just mesh either. The geometric designs etched into the mesh give it an edge as well. Want to see this dress on a person, watch Women’s Vlog #126.

Nike Control Lawn Dress

The dress has a great fit, and it never hurts to have a solid foundation like that. One thing to mention for Nike’s tennis apparel in general is the quality of bra that is used. This year, the internal bras have been improved and offer better support than ever. But back to the dress. This ensemble worn by Serena Williams also has flashes of pink for the accent color, but what makes this one stand out for me are the pintuck details on the back — very flattering — and the lightweight material used for the skirt. Check out our women’s Vlog #127 to see how it looks on.

Nike Maria Sharapova Lawn Dress

Unlike the previous two mentions, except for the modest Swoosh on the chest, this dress doesn’t use color. And it doesn’t need it. This has all the drama that we’ve come to expect from Maria. This dress impresses with its playful use of textures. The mix of knit jersey and mesh layers somehow manages to remain lightweight and offers the dimension a solid white dress needs to look great in person — and on TV.

These are just a few of the Wimbledon pieces. I certainly have some other favorites. Share some with me. In the meantime, I’ll be on the lookout for my favorite apparel for the US Open, which, as always, promises to make a design splash in an entirely different way.

Happy Hitting!
