Garbine Muguruza Wimbledon 2017 dress

“I love to experiment with my style on and off the court but it can be difficult to express your personality at Wimbledon. The combination of different textures makes my dress really stand out; one of the reasons I am really happy to be wearing adidas by Stella McCartney.”

Last year’s Roland Garros champion Garbine Muguruza will be wearing the new adidas by Stella McCartney Barricade dress on Wimbledon courts. The 2017 adidas by Stella McCartney Wimbledon collection is available now in high end and speciality retailers worldwide, the adidas by Stella McCartney flagship store in Brompton Cross, London and online at http://www.adidas.co.uk/tennis.

Garbine Muguruza Roland Garros 2017 outfit

Grey, black and white for Roland Garros champion Garbine Muguruza, red and white for former number Caroline Wozniacki, adidas has unveiled the new adidas by Stella McCartney Roland Garros collection.

Garbine will wear the new adidas by Stella McCartney Barricade dress in a grey and white colour-block. The 3-in-1 design has a slim fit and is crafted using a premium, Climalite material that enhances the body’s natural temperature regulation; vital on the punishing clay of Roland Garros.

“I enjoyed playing at Roland Garros so much last year and I am so excited to return to the courts where I celebrated my first Grand Slam win. As it is such a happy and emotional memory, I find myself reflecting on last year as I prepare for this year’s tournament. This is why I connect so much to the design story of my Barricade Roland Garros dress and its nod to tournaments gone by.”
