The women’s collection includes a comfortable and lightweight 3-in-1 jumpsuit with mesh back, which will be worn on court by Kristina Mladenovic.
We all know it’s gonna be a hot one in Melbourne, and adidas takes that into mind for the AO, says Caroline Hess, apparel designer for adidas Tennis.
By focusing on the mood, environment and aesthetic of the city and tournament, we have been able to create a fresh approach to tennis wear with outfits that work for the beach as well as the courts. The adidas Melbourne Line also includes our industry leading technologies such as Climacool as well as UPF 20+ to ensure players are kept cool and protected in the sun.
