The US Open is just several days away and now the fashion releases are shifting into higher gear, so expect a lot of updates from me these days. So far I’ve shown you Ana Ivanovic‘s Adidas outfit, Caroline Wozniacki‘s color-block dress that has definitely been confirmed as her clothing of choice, Jelena Jankovic‘s Fila “futuristic armor for athletic warrior”, the whole Lacoste range, as well as Agnieszka Radwanska‘s lace Lotto dress.
Let’s now see what sports fashion giant Nike has prepared for the tennis queen Serena Williams, while soon I’ll also give you a closer look into other new designs of the brand.
Fresh off her Cincinnati title, world number one Serena Williams will go to Flushing Meadows in quest for the Calendar Slam in this animal print dress, called the NikeCourt Premier Dress. The American’s outfits for quite some time now have been highlighted by animal prints, while her last year’s US Open dress was the boldest of the bunch.
This new item, made of Dri-FIT, stretch fabric, has split tank straps, zip back and keyhole cutout at mid-back. Bra is not included in the design, but we know Serena will wear Berlei.
We have already seen the dress on Serena, at Nike’s event in the streets of New York. Do you like it? Tell me in the comments!
I love this choice of colors for the US Open, the print absolutely suits Serena, while the zipper and little opening in the back beautifully add visual interest to the solid black.
