photos from the adidas by stella mccartney s/s ’08 show

September 20, 2007

Photos from the adidas by Stella McCartney collection are up, folks.

She presented the clothes sans the traditional catwalk, instead creating outdoor scenes (pool, golf course, grassy area) where the models could show off the full range of athletic wear in action.

The tennis look is the one shown on the left. The bib front polo has puffed sleeves, and the belted skort looks like it might gather funny on the run (like last year’s Wimby dress). We’ll have to wait and see.

The bathing suit’s ho-hum, but the dress that goes with it. And Stella continues the cropped look with the sweatshorts and yellow hoodie, both of which scream “casual sporty”.



fashion focus: kirilenko shines at sunfeast

September 20, 2007

Ok lest you think I eat, drink, sleep Maria Kirilenko‘s clothes, you can browse the archives and know that I am capable of discussing other players (and topics).

But she’s hitting good marks at the Sunfeast Open and it’s worth commending. First, she dressed up in a sari and looked great (note that she wore the appropriate footwear — sandals — unlike other fashion mavens who’ve tripped in this sitch).

Putting together outfits is clearly something she’s hip to. ”I follow fashion and always like to wear the latest styles. My favourite designer, of course, is [Stella] McCartney,” she told United News of India. ”I am honoured to be chosen to wear Stella’s creations. They are attractive, stylish and comfortable. It is nice if people find me attractive, but I want to be known for my tennis.”

So she brought back her f/w ’07 adidas by McCartney dress — which we ever-so-briefly saw at the U.S. Open — for this week’s tournament. Let’s hope she sticks around a little longer; as the fourth seed, she took out Ekaterina Ivanova 6-1, 6-4 in the second round (after a first-round bye).

For a mixed doubles exo with Indian cricket player Sachin Tendulkar, Kirilenko wore cute puffy shorts from the s/s ’07 collection.

fashion focus: adidas by stella mccartney – ss08

September 20, 2007

London Fashion Week closes out today with a show for adidas by Stella McCartney‘s spring/summer 2008 ready-to-wear collection.

Her event caps an exciting week that saw Luella Bartley present a collection after a six-year absence, and toasted Matthew Williamson‘s tenth year on the fashion scene.

Can’t wait to see what Stella comes up with. As usual, the collection will feature items for running, gym, yoga, tennis, swimming. It’ll also have dance gear (which she first addressed in her f/w ’07 collection).

Whatever tennis-related pieces we see are likely what’ll comprise (adidas-sponsored) Maria Kirilenko‘s outfits in 2008.

We will post pics once we get ’em.
