The Fall/Winter 05 collection focuses on the categories Running, Gym and Swim and is a unique fusion of style and performance. Stella McCartney: "There is a real validity to making goodlooking sportswear clothes for women. In this day and age, we should not have to compromise style for performance."
Within the main categories, the new collection looks into extended outdoor activities such as
Trail Running and Climbing. Michael Michalsky, adidas Global Creative Director: "This range is
about taking women seriously - in their individualism and their desire for style as well as
performance. We created a Fall/Winter collection that doesn't restrict women to workout sessions indoors."
The Fall/Winter collection introduces padded jackets, fleece tops and winter boots as well as a
wider range of accessories including sports bags. Technical highlights feature an ultra-soft Italian polar fleece, engineered membrane fabrics as well as Clima365 products including ClimaWarm and ClimaProof for apparel and footwear. Feminine earthy colours in dusty rose, pearl green and copper are spiced up by unexpected bright accents in aquarius, flamingo and zest. adidas and Stella McCartney work side by side to ensure the successful fusion of their area of
expertise. The cooperation is a long-term project and plans are to cover even more sport
performance areas in the future. The Fall/Winter 05 collection will hit retail in mid August and
will be available in almost 300 high-end department stores as well as adidas Sport Performance Center stores around the world. Price points range from 30 to 350 Euros.
Note: adidas offers products out of three different divisions: Sport Performance (leading
technologies), Sport Heritage (Originals models), Sport Style (Y-3, sports-inspired design
collaboration with Yohji Yamamoto). The adidas by Stella McCartney range is part of the adidas Sport Performance division.
