The award-winning adidas by Stella McCartney collection are conquering uncharted territory by continuing to re-define and challenge traditional sport silhouettes by introducing Triathlon and Cycling to the distinctive functional fashion range. To celebrate, the Triathlon and Cycling range was launched in an exclusive film premier at the SS10 showroom at London Fashion Week and went online on 11 January 2010.
Stella McCartney comments “This collection continues to be a great success, and I’m very excited to introduce Triathlon and Cycling as new categories. I’m always trying to push myself and this new collection has everything you need in sports today: it is sleek, stylish and super sporty! Technically, both new sports are exciting, they are very personal yet still competitive, and they combine both a city and country experience which is very important to me.”
