“This is the partnership of a lifetime for me,” said Beyoncé. “Adidas has had tremendous success in pushing creative boundaries. We share a philosophy that puts creativity, growth and social responsibility at the forefront of business. I look forward to relaunching and expanding Ivy Park on a truly global scale with a proven, dynamic leader.”

The partnership will result in the co-creation of exciting new products from performance to lifestyle and a purpose-driven program focused on empowering and enabling the next generation of athletes, creators and leaders.
