This has not been confirmed anywhere yet, but it is unlikely that these are not Lotto‘s new tennis clothes and that Agnieszka Radwanska will not be their prime promoter. Women’s Tennis Blog’s reader Sorciere referred me to the pics and then I found the additional photo of the collection on Tennis Forum.
Lace and women’s tennis outfits have never been strangers to each other — what first comes to my mind are Venus Williams’ memorable EleVen lace dresses of a few years ago (have a look at my complete overview of the American’s 2011 outfits, as well as the 2010 ones), while Denise Cronwall is a tennis clothing designer also characteristic for finding inspiration in lace. After years of dull designs, this year Lotto made a major shift in its approach to tennis clothing, as evidenced by Aga’s 2014 outfits, and, as expected, the brand will continue the path of fashion risks in 2015.
A black dress for the Australian Open is an extremely weird choice, but maybe the Pole will opt for the separates which exist in lighter colors and also feature lace on the back, while she’ll wear the dress at some other tournaments.
What do you think of Lotto’s experiment with lace? I like the surprise factor (the back of the dress is especially shocking) and I like the item’s uniqueness and glamor. Cons are that it looks too much as a night club dress and isn’t really convenient for everyday practice.
