Back to basics: Karolina Pliskova’s Fila Heritage collection for Australian Open 2018

After experimenting with pastel colors in the Game Day collection launched at the 2017 WTA Finals in Singapore, Fila‘s Heritage collection for the upcoming Australian Open is getting back to the evergreen combination of navy, red and white in just as classic silhouettes.

Fila’s iconic palette is combined with archival design details such as stripes, color-blocking and pleats, resulting in timeless sporty outfits.

Fila is especially proud of a contemporary twist in the loose layering practice tank, slim fit pant and striped pleated skort, as well as updated proportions in a long cropped fit on the Heritage Jacket.

As always, Fila offers a variety of mixes and matches, providing four tank top styles, a polo shirt and a long-sleeve shirt, which can be paired with three skirts (pleated and striped designs), two types of shorts (woven and double layer options) and the Heritage Pant.

Pliskova traditionally chooses separates, but a tennis collection can’t go without a dress — Fila’s new Heritage Pleated Dress was crafted with contrast color back and upper arm panels, striped rib detailing at the armholes and front pleats.

What’s your take on Fila’s comeback to classic colors and cuts? Will you be glad to see traditional sporty designs in Melbourne or would you prefer a more lively palette and less simple designs?



  1. Very, very traditional, retro and borderline boring…. She is VERY skinny, indeed, btw… How come her serve is so powerful?

  2. I really like them. They are classic and stylish and flattering. And there is enough variety so that the Fila players won’t all look the same. Unlike Asics, which has only one outfit that is ugly to start with.

  3. Love the classic and stylish navy red and white! Have a lot of ideas myself. Also love black and white. And neutrals. Want this Pliskova dress, and then some… is Fila based in Melbourne??!

  4. Lorena Jackson, the Fila brand was established over a century ago by the Fila brothers of Biella, Italy. Now the company is based in South Korea, in Seoul.
