Just like at the Australian Open, Fila‘s athletes will have two women’s lines available for Roland Garros: the Heritage collection to be worn by Karolina Pliskova and Jelena Jankovic and the Tropical Slice collection to be sported by Yaroslava Shvedova, Irina-Camelia Begu and Timea Babos.
World No.3 Karolina Pliskova will hit the clay courts in Paris in the Heritage Sleeveless Polo, equipped with moisture-wicking fabric and UV 30 protection, and the Heritage Skort, in a navy, white and online lime colorway reflecting Fila’s roots while offering contemporary touches for a harmonious marriage of current trends and tradition.
For warm-up the Czech will wear the Fila Spring Heritage II 3/4 Sleeve Top, while the Heritage Mesh Visor will complete her look.
Jelena Jankovic will be outfitted in the Heritage II Racer Dress, characterized by Fila’s signature red, white and navy blocks of color. It’s actually just the other version of the beautiful striped dress with green waistband that JJ rocked in Indian Wells and Miami. For colder weather, the former world No.1 has ready this old school Spring Heritage II Jacket.
The Tropical Slice clothes will brighten the French Open courts with their upbeat arrangement of neon oranges, turquoises and eclectic prints. The collection’s airy mesh details and super lightweight textures allow wearers to run for the balls in the most comfortable way.
The range features five silhouettes of tops (the Crossback Tank, Halterneck Tank, Full Coverage Tank, Cap Sleeve Top and Long Sleeve Top) and two skort styles (the tulip petal skirt silhouette of the so called Car Wash Skirt and the classic Pleated Skirt).
The Fila Tropical Dress is the only dress in the range and it features built-in shelf bra, contrast piping, and 30+ UV protection.
The collection also provides extra layers for colder temperatures: the figure-slimming Fila Tropical Jacket and the Fila Tropical Pants with side pockets and zippers at ankles.
What are your favorite items from these two Roland Garros lines? I top pick would be Karolina Pliskova’s outfit, as I love stripes and traditional looks that have a modern twist.

I love the Fila tropical dress. I think the colors are great and refreshing for the red clay courts. What do you think? It will look good on JJ. I remember Venus’ EleVen on this range.
Emman Damian, my absolute favorite was the striped version of this JJ’s dress, so my favorite from the RG range are definitely Pliskova’s separates, as I love the touch of green on the traditional navy stripes. I also adore updated polos.
I agree. I also like Kaja’s separates. Green has been the color of RG this year predominantly and Fila did it with navy. It looks so good. Very classic yet stylish. I think JJ’s dress represent Fila well. They sported the company’s color.
