Working on the premise that sporting apparel should be as stylish as it is functional, British fashion designer Stella McCartney partnered with sportswear mogul Adidas in 2004. Since then, the Adidas by Stella McCartney collection has comprised premium-quality gear for various sporting disciplines such as running, cycling, tennis, yoga and swimming. Structured in a way to fit and flatter the body, McCartney and Adidas use cutting edge sports technology to design high performance clothing for women. Last but not least, in keeping with the eco-friendly ethos of this sustainable fashion ambassador, Stella McCartney employs the use of organic cotton and recycled yarn in many of her designs.
Versatile and stylish, McCartney’s powder pink hoodie with split kangaroo pockets will appeal to the more effeminate ladies opting for a daytime outfit suitable both inside the gym and out. For an all-black approach that adheres more closely to the Adidas aesthetic, team a pair of glossy athletic jogging trousers with its matching running jacket and black sneakers for a look that’s formidable yet trendy and functional – no wonder she was appointed creative director of the GB team for the London 2012 Olympic Games.
