The adidas x Thebe Magugu collection features vibrant and expressive sport and style designs that celebrate community, heritage, and identity, inspired by the South African designer’s upbringing. Powered by adidas and Thebe’s passion for inclusivity, this function-meets-fashion female collection includes modesty swimwear, inclusive sizing in sizes XL to 4XL and gender-neutral pieces.
Each performance piece in the collection features leading performance technology made in part with recycled materials, with the Tennis garments set to feature on world-class players during the most prominent hardcourt tournaments.
United by a shared passion for inclusivity and kinship, the collection includes a three-piece modesty swimwear set made in part with recycled materials and chlorine resistant fabric that is lightweight and chlorine-resistant swimwear in inclusive sizing (XS-4XL), and gender-neutral pieces with UNITEFIT – a fit system that is created with a spectrum of sizes, genders, and forms in mind.
The high-performance Tennis pieces will be premiered during one of the most prominent hardcourt tournaments by adidas’ inspirational athletes Dana Mathewson, Stefanos Tsitsipas, Felix Auger Aliassime and Daria Kasatkina who are passionate about showing support for what matters and encouraging diversity and inclusivity on and off the court. The Tennis collection features the Purple NY UNITEFIT Tennis Dress, delivering style and functionality, made in part with recycled materials.
Alongside the performance pieces, the statement Originals looks include the Originals Crop T-shirt, in white and semi pulse lilac, delivering classic streetwear style, and the Originals 7/8 Leggings. The collaboration also includes remixes of iconic adidas footwear silhouettes including the Stan Smith, Nizza Platform, Astir and Forum footwear, which feature design accents from Thebe Magugu’s signature prints. Reflecting adidas’ commitment to consciously crafting performance materials, hero styles and pieces have also been made in part with recycled materials, one of the innovations that represent our commitment to help end plastic waste.
