World number one Angelique Kerber has been joined by the likes of Dominic Thiem, Sascha Zverev and Garbine Muguruza, who are equipped with the brand new Melbourne and Barricade performance wear.

The striking clothes line is inspired by Melbourne’s terrain and blissful summer climate during the first Grand Slam of the season.

For the men, the blue of the ocean combines with pops of bright orange to deliver a look matching the heat and zest of the popular Australian city.

For the women, Caroline Wozniacki and company will be looking graceful on court in the continued collaboration with Stella McCartney.

In line with the Australian Open’s fun and vibrant identity, the collection reimagines primary colours with a bi-colour seamless knit design to create fresh, bold shades which stand out on the court. The range’s classic feminine silhouettes are given a modern twist with laser cut detail.

Now you can kit yourself out in the finest gear to grace the Tour.
