adidas on the edge of something good



caroline-wozniacki-adidaswinter09

While Ana’s adilibria dress keeps me thinking about messenger bag boob mash, I must say the rest of the season’s Edge line hits the mark.

Dane Caroline Wozniacki, who ended last season at a career-high No. 12, will sport separates from the line: the Edge Tank, with its layered bust and slits down the side (for better movement); and the big-pleated Edge Skort. I hoped for them to use a more subdued shade of yellow (like Jankovic‘s U.S. Open Reebok dress), but you can’t have it all.

The other pieces stay true to the Edge line’s feminine and fashion-forward vision: the Cap Sleeve Top, accented with an empire waist and an oversized banded hem (!) that slopes down from left to right; and the Warm-Up Top, with a ribbed cuff stretching all the way from wrist to elbow. Warm-up pants are also available.

u.s. open ’08 preview: ana ivanovic’s dress?



Ana Ivanovic withdrew from the Olympics with an injured right thumb sustained during play in Montreal the week prior. While her participation at the U.S. Open might be in doubt (ostheopathic medicine, don’t fail us now!), we’re pretty sure that her petal-hemmed adidas Edge Dress will appear in slate/orange colorway. Product info tk.

Buy: adidas Summer Edge Dress, white/mauve tint, $65.

from bubble to petals: ana’s wimbledon dress



If you’d taken a stand against Ana Ivanovic‘s bubble Edge dress from adidas — personally, I was a fan — you’ll be happy to know that the gathered fabric will disappear for the grasscourt season and give way to petal-like pleating.

What do you think of the new dress? Tell us!

Info: Adidas Edge Spring/Summer 2008 in white/mauve tint, $65. Will drop this month.
