'Y-3 is pioneering the future of sport and fashion. The collaboration with adidas Tennis as seen in the Roland Garros collection adds a new dimension to the possibilities of the brand, bringing the spirit and energy of high-fashion to the courts. It's an exciting opportunity to fuse the iconic style of Yohji Yamamoto -the master of fashion- with the modern language of sport.' Dirk Schönberger - adidas Global Creative Director.
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, electric, ultra-bright Hawaiian floral prints that reference Y-3's Spring/Summer 2015 collection.
'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' Yohji Yamamoto.
'At adidas Tennis, we're always looking for ways to impact the game. The unexpected partnership of our high performance product with style and craftsmanship of Y-3 and Mr. Yamamoto is a great example. And there's no better place to showcase this exciting collaboration than with our top players on the prestigious courts of Roland Garros.' Graham Williamson - Senior Director of adidas Tennis.
