Famed Japanese designer Yohji Yamamoto of Y-3 has leant his clean aesthetic eye to adidas for the latest Roland Garros Collection. The latest garments and sports shoes fuse the technical expertise of adidas with the unique style of the renowned Y-3 silhouettes.
A promotional video has been created to highlight the motivation behind the collection which will be showcased for the first time at the 2015 Roland Garros tournament by Jo-Wilfred Tsonga and Ana Ivanovic.
The sports shoes will feature bold Hawaiian floral prints contrasted against Yohji Yamamoto’s signature stark black-and-white. In explaining the motivation behind the designs, Yamamoto said, “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.”
The Y-3 Roland Garros Collection is now available globally and at adidas online.
