adidas ROLAND GARROS COLLECTION by Y-3

The adidas Roland Garros Collection by Y-3 fuses technical expertise of adidas Tennis with the Sport Style ethos of Y-3. Now adidas Tennis releases a short video dedicated to the collection which shows Ana Ivanovic and Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, two of the world's leading tennis players, wearing the collection for the first time on the court.

Throughout the course of the tournament—which begins on May 24th and continues through June 7th— Ana and Jo will impact the game in the pioneering adidas Roland Garros Collection by Y-3. The collection combines Y-3's bold aesthetic with the breakthrough advances of adidas Performance and marks the first time Y-3 will be worn by athletes during play.

In the video Yohji Yamamoto himself speaks about the collection and on his passion for the fusion of sport and fashion. Speaking about the collection, he shared, "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."

Designed for the height of summer, the pieces leverage adidas' Coolmax technology for supreme ventilation and comfort. The collection's color-ways are firmly rooted in the classic Y-3 look, offering both Yohji Yamamoto's signature stark black-and-white as well as vivid Hawaiian floral prints that reference Y-3's Spring/Summer 2015 collection.

The collection is now available globally on adidas.com, adidas Sport Performance stores, Y-3.com and in Y-3 stores as well as fine, specialty tennis retailers.
