Here’s a behind-the-scenes look at our shoot with Caroline Wozniacki and Andrea Petkovic in the adidas by Stella McCartney Spring/ Summer 2013 Tennis Barricade collection.

Be inspired and celebrate women’s Tennis in style! The adidas by Stella McCartney Barricade collection offers a fusion of adidas high-end technologies and Stella’s unique style for the performance-focused athlete.

Designed with the competitive player in mind, the range will be worn by tennis players Caroline Wozniacki, Andrea Petkovic and Laura Robson during 2013 Grand Slams, showcasing its forward thinking design, standout aesthetic and performance functionality.

"Tennis is really one of the sport disciplines that I design that can really house feminine styles with high performance. We achieve this in our use of colour and cut as well as using all the latest technology. I am really proud to work with these incredible athletes to launch the collection." says Stella.

Each style in the collection uses ClimaLITE® technology in specially placed mesh zones for maximum ventilation on court, ensuring your body temperature is at optimum level even during the most intense rally.
“The new adidas by Stella McCartney barricade range makes me feel secure and comfortable on court. The bright colour blocking and advanced technology presented in every item I’m wearing gives me confidence to focus only on my own performance on court.” says Caroline Wozniacki.
Andrea Petkovic adds: “My new kit makes me feel primed for victory. I plan to go all in and give the tournament everything I have so it’s important to me to know that I’m supported by the best performance wear available.”
