Fila has been very prolific in recent years, releasing new collections more frequently than other brands (maybe as often as EleVen by Venus), but this time they’re further stepping up their game, creating two lines for the 2017 Australian Open: the new Heritage collection for Jelena Jankovic and Karolina Pliskova, and the Sleek Streak collection for Yaroslava Shvedova, Timea Babos and Irina-Camelia Begu.


The Heritage clothes reflect Fila’s rich history in the game, paying homage to the company’s original aesthetic with authentic elements from 1970s. A simple color palette including navy, white and Chinese red hues is combined with a variety of timeless designs that include contemporary touches such as windowpane jacquard patterns and knit collars.

There are three types of tops in the new Heritage range: a racerback tank, full coverage tank and cap-sleeve top, to be combined with the Heritage skort and Heritage pleated skort. The highlight of the collection is the Heritage Polo Dress, while the Heritage Jacket and Heritage Pant complete the line.

Jelena Jankovic and Karolina Pliskova will start unfolding the 2017 Fila Heritage story at the 2017 Australian Open in outfits that wonderfully merge retro and modern elements.


The Sleek Streak athletes will departure from Fila’s roots with urban-chic apparel that strikes a balance of spicy 1970s style and futuristic finishes. A black/white/ruby rose colorway, noveaux tie-dye print, color-blocking, and glimmer-sheen finishes come together to create a mix of statement pieces and everyday staples.

Yaroslava Shvedova, Irina-Camelia Begu and Timea Babos will have so many options for mixing and matching, as the line includes five silhouettes of tops, three skort styles, as well as two dresses (the Sleek Dress and Sleek Printed Dress). A racerback tank, halter tank, full coverage tank, short sleeve top, and long sleeve top can be combined with three types of skorts that come in different lengths. The skorts are detailed with slits, pleats and pops of the multi print. The Sleek Jacket and Sleek Pant, in black and ruby rose hues, round out the collection.



  1. I love the classic Fila colors although I think this will look good more in New York than in Melbourne. The Red Dress will most likely be JJ’s or Kaja’s and it will look good on them. Very sporty and classic look!

  2. Djole, I don’t know why Fila doesn’t have promo pics with players this time.

    Emman Damian, no, that’s the Sleek Streak collection. JJ will most probably wear the polo dress, as Djole said, as that is from the Heritage collection.

  3. Wow such a stunning collection!! All of ’em. That Red sleek dress in pg 24, dresses in pages 32, 33 (My god that entire collection!!! ) But I’m afraid the frog/snake skinned dress in 48-49,52 the skirt in pages 18-19, 23 will be called garbage bag collection probably will be mocked online 🙁 But overall this is why Fila is my fav brand they are perfect mix of vintage and modern fashion and have clothes for people with all kinds of taste
