adidas by Stella McCartney has revealed its first capsule for new and expecting mothers with the launch of the Fall / Winter ‘22 Maternity Collection.
Designed to support athletes during pregnancy and postpartum, the capsule fuses signature adidas by Stella McCartney animal print with soft and stretchy performance fabrics designed to adapt with the body through each stage of the motherhood journey. Created for ultimate versatility, the collection supports a range of sports including yoga and running.
In homage to the new wave of expressive maternity style, this collection redefines what supportive and on-trend workout wear looks like for new and expecting mothers. Each piece in the capsule has been consciously crafted with materials and methods that are designed to offer both comfort and practicality during movement.
Providing the perfect blend of innovation and versatility, the Maternity Collection features adidas’ first ever Performance Nursing Bra. Crafted with fabrics that feel like a second skin, the bra incorporates an easy to open clip solution to support with breast feeding, alongside adjustable straps and removable pads for added comfort. The 3-in-1 Jacket is a functional fleece designed with a ‘Carry Me’ insert to provide mothers room to carry their baby close.
Speaking about the campaign and collection, Stella McCartney said: “More than ever, we need to ensure sport is an inclusive space, which means innovating and catering to the specific needs of our community. Too often, maternity performance wear is muted and pared back and we’re so proud to be introducing our first ever collection that reimagines pregnancy workout style. Each piece is designed for comfort first, but with technical details and bold colours that allow new and expectant mothers to express themselves. It has been hugely exciting to create the collection during a time when women no longer need to choose between their pregnancy wardrobe and remaining true to themselves.”
