Adidas launches new Tennis collection with Thebe Magugu
Following the launch of its mainline Tennis collection earlier this month, Adidas has partnered with South African designer Thebe Magugu for a new Tennis range.
The Adidas x Thebe Magugu collection celebrates culture, heritage and inclusivity through a range of apparel pieces and footwear featuring unisex styles, gender-neutral pieces and inclusive sizing.
The collection also features Unitefit technology, created and tested on a range of sizes and genders, offering "a comfortable gender-neutral fit".
In terms of sustainability credentials, the apparel collection features the Unisex Tee and Unisex Short in Made with Nature fabrication, and all men’s styles are Made with Nature. The rest of the collection is also made in part with recycled materials, including the Avacourt shoe.
Key looks of the collection will be premiered during one of the most prominent hardcourt tournaments this summer, by adidas athletes Dana Mathewson, Felix Auger Aliassime, Daria Kasatkina, Stefanos Tsitsipas, Jessica Pegula, Garbiñe Muguruza and Dominic Thiem.
Commenting on the collection, Magugu said: "I firmly believe that sport has the power to bring people together over a shared love for the game. That is why I am thrilled to partner with Adidas, a brand that shares my beliefs and hopes for a more inclusive future.
"This collection was designed as a celebration of culture, heritage and inclusivity, and I cannot wait for some of the most inspirational athletes to wear it on court."
