Yohji Yamamoto Serves Up an Ace with the Adidas Roland Garros Collection by Y-3

Famed designer Yohji Yamamoto unveiled his latest Roland Garros Collection by Y-3 collaboration with the Adidas tennis team at the 2016 French Open. For many tennis loving fashionistas Yamamoto has served up an ace. But some tennis traditionalists argue the stark patterns went too far. The bold black and white patterns were worn by two of the world’s leading tennis players, Jo-Wilfried Tsonga and Ana Ivanovic. Even the ball boys and ball girls sported the dramatic tennis apparel on the red clay courts in Paris.

Roland Garros Collection by Y-3

The Adidas tennis clothing collection combines RG Y-3 ‘s bold aesthetic with the breakthrough advances of Adidas Performance technology. The range includes functional accessories such as socks and wristbands in classic adidas designs, while the tennis footwear reinterprets the brand’s ultra-light adizero concept, designed to maximize clay court use. The collection’s colorways are firmly rooted in the classic Y-3 look and offers Yohji Yamamoto’s signature stark patterns.

The eye-catching designs are inspired by dazzle camouflage from the 1940s and 1950s. Given a more fluid and stripe-driven twist, the stripes in motion motif was designed not to conceal, but to disrupt.  The 2016 Adidas Roland Garros collection by Y-3 evokes a sense of movement, even when standing still between points on the tennis court.

The collection was designed to provide a uniquely sophisticated approach to tennis attire, while enhancing performance.  The apparel best suits confident tennis players who seek performance, boldness and aesthetics in one powerful mix.
