Legendary designer Yohji Yamamoto has collaborated with Adidas Tennis to produce Adidas x Y-3 for this year’s Roland Garros French open Tournament, which runs until the 7th June 2015.
This collaboration is especially poignant as not only is it the first time that both brands have worked together but also, the first time Y-3 will be worn by two of the world’s leading tennis players – Jo-Wilfried Tsonga and Ana Ivanovic.
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
Below is the release video in which Yamamoto discusses his inspiration behind the designs and collaboration.
