Wolford and adidas have collaborated for the first time to create new seamless performance garments with all-day wearability. The Wolford x adidas athleisure partnership will create two capsule collections Studio Motion and Sheer Motion, both featuring sleek and supportive performance pieces crafted with opaque and sheer knitting techniques to cover and highlight the body.

“It has been a pleasure to work with such an amazing brand like adidas, and have the opportunity to combine our feminine touch and comfortable second-skin-like clothes, with their knowledge and dedication to high performance sportswear,” said Silvia Azzali, Wolford’s CCO. “Adidas and Wolford’s uncompromising ethos on quality, design and innovation have come together for a collection that will meet the desires of the most demanding, fashionable and active consumer thanks to the use of outlandish fibers as well as our most renowned knitting techniques.”

Adidas is the first sportswear company to partner with Wolford, which is renowned for its mastery of knitting capabilities and yarn. Combining adidas’ expertise in athlete performance and technical fabrics with Wolford’s unique ability  to  produce  premium knit products, the two brands have worked together closely to blend the best of both industries.

“In our ambition to redefine the use of knit in sportswear and to build on our cult favorites like Warpknit, Wolford – which has the best knitting capabilities in the market – emerged as the perfect partner to collaborate with on this luxurious collection. Inspired by iconic shapewear silhouettes and the color-blocking aesthetic of 80s and 90s sportswear, our ultimate goal was to create a feminine, performance-led range for the modern active woman that makes the wearer feel strong and confident,” said Josephine Aberg, VP Design Women’s. “We focused on innovative materials that perform first and foremost, as well as fresh design details that make a statement inside the studio and beyond.”

The collection introduces two drops of completely seamless garments including three coordinated long sleeve top and legging sets  and  two  body- suit looks, all offering full coverage and a second skin feel, without  distractions.  With  combinations of sheer and opaque knits, each piece is designed to be worn during workouts and layered throughout the day, providing an effortless transition from the studio to wherever your day takes you, along with unparalleled comfort and fit.
