adidas x Y-3 for Roland Garros
The adidas Roland Garros Collection by Y-3 is the first coming-together of the two adidas brands and will be worn by two of the world’s leading tennis players – Jo-Wilfried Tsonga and Ana Ivanovic, plus the tournament’s ball boys and girls.
‘I’ve always admired Y-3’s style, so to wear a tennis range that combines Y-3’s look with the technology of adidas Performance is very exciting to me. I’m honored to be one of the first athletes to wear the range, and where better than at my home tournament of Roland Garros.’ Jo-Wilfried Tsonga – adidas athlete & World Number 13
The clothing leverages adidas Coolmax technology for ventilation and comfort with the vibrant Hawaiian floral prints from the Y-3 SS15 collection. Functional accessories include socks, wristbands, and footwear reinterpreting the brand’s ultra-light adizero concept.
‘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’. – Yohji Yamamoto
