There’s nothing better than a fresh and updated traditional style in women’s tennis fashion and Jelena Jankovic’s Fila Heritage tennis clothes for the 2016 US Open offer just that.
Revisiting its archives, Fila once again revived its signature combination of shades like red and white, combining them with modern details such as pinstriped textured mesh and ergonomic seam lines to create a sleek and elegant lineup to be debuted in New York City.
In the promo video, we can see Jelena Jankovic in two dresses and I’ve had a love at first sight experience with the red dress and its color-block hem. Isn’t it beautiful? We can also see Yaroslava Shvedova and Jamie Loeb playing in tanks and skorts from the collection, which prides itself on being made of high-quality stretch fabric, while we also get a glimpse at Fila’s staple Heritage jacket.
The color scheme looks like what Serena and the American ladies would wear at the Rio Olympics in August. BTW Marija, do you have any idea what line the Americans and other countries for that matter, will be wearing at the Olympics? Serena and Madison wear Nike. Sloane wears Under Armour, and Venus wears her own Eleven line. I believe the USA will have Nike apparel which would go against what Venus and Sloane wears. I know in mens’s golf at the Olympics there was some controversy with Rory McIlroy having to wear Adidas for Ireland, when his contract with Nike would not allow him to wear anything but Nike. Of course this is mute since Rory, like many of the top men golfers, decided to drop out of the Rio Olympics, due to “concerns with the Zika virus”.
Jim, Venus will definitely wear EleVen, just like in London four years ago. I showed her Olympic dress in my post several days ago: https://womenstennisblog.com/2016/07/23/venus-williams-us-open-2016-dress/ I don’t think that countries will wear just one brand. I checked the 2012 London Olympics for Ana Ivanovic and Jelena Jankovic, and Ana wore Adidas, while JJ wore Fila, as usual.
Speaking of “dresses”, I wonder what color pantsuit Hillary Clinton will wear tonight in her acceptance speech at the DNC? She wore blue last night after President Obama’s speech. I’m betting on power red. And will she wear an American flag pin on her lapel?
