As the new tennis season starts with the Australian Open 2018, adidas reveals the latest performance collections to be worn on court by the best in the game. The new adidas by Stella McCartney Barricade collection for women continues the beach inspired colour palette of the Melbourne Line but with a focus on premium performance fabrics and design.

Garbine Muguruza and Caroline Wozniacki will both debut the new aSMC tank and skirt. The tank features an exposed, cooling mesh back and classic zipper detail by the neckline in a standout yellow for a feminine and sporty finish. The inbuilt Boost technology in the adidas by Stella McCartney Barricade Boost 2018 shoe aims to maximise energy return, maintain control and ensure swift movement with every step on court.

“I had a fantastic year in 2017, winning my second Grand Slam and reaching WTA number 1 for the first time. Everyone will be looking at me to come out of winter training and compete at the same level, so it's important I feel confident in my outfit. The adidas by Stella McCartney Barricade outfit is equipped to handle all my performance needs- but also reflects my personal preference for classic and timeless feminine design,” commented Garbine Muguruza.

adidas by Stella McCartney collaboration was launched in Spring/Summer 2005 as a unique concept for women’s sports performance. The highly innovative sports performance range consists of apparel, footwear and accessory pieces in tennis, weekender, running, yoga, training, swim and cycling.
