Exclusive: Venus Williams’ EleVen dress for the 2016 French Open


I am excited to be the first to release a photo of Venus Williams in her EleVen dress designed for the 2016 French Open. The collection is called Geo Swirl.

The dress has high neckline with an edgy narrow cut, while contrast binding along the waistband provides a figure-slimming effect. The artistic geometric pattern is in subtle colors, making this one of Williams’ more subdued designs.

EleVen by Venus has been highly prolific when it comes to creating designs and today we’ll have another new release, as Williams will premier the Strike Miami Dress in her opener against Elena Vesnina at the Miami Open. Similarly to the French Open dress, the Miami item uses soft colors and geometry, this time multidirectional blocks of lines.

It’s still only March and we’ve already seen four collection by EleVen. Venus opened the year in the Brushstrokes clothes, then she introduced the Camilla print, in which she won the Kaohsiung title in February and made the big Indian Wells return, while now we’re awaiting the debut of the Strike collection and soon afterwards the Geo Swirl.

If you love EleVen, you’ll also enjoy my annual overviews of Venus’ dresses:



  1. The Miami Dress looks very clean and fresh!! Love it. I think the Roland Garros dress would love very nice against the red clay in the summer. Venus ??

  2. Btw, do you know if any other athletes apart from Venus are going to wear these? The Miami dress could do for Wimbledon as well, being “predominantly white”.

  3. Oh, in the end Venus wore the separates from the collection in Miami…

    Claire, it’s definitely not white enough for Wimbledon. As for other athletes, Jarmila Wolfe.

  4. Ok, ive been holding these thoughts about ELEVEN clothing line since 2013. I strongly believe ELEVEN collections are BORING, the dresses, the tops, the skirts are all basic designs, the only thing stand out about ELEVEN is they just changed the pattern/print of the clothing every year, if you take away the prints, its just basic boring designs.

    I like the eleven clothing before 2012, it was more daring, original, n one of a kind.

    Although the 2014 Wimbledon dress was exception, it was the best dress eleven ever designed.
