Venus Williams’ Aztec collection for Australian Open 2018


Venus WilliamsEleVen opens the spring-summer season with the Aztec collection for the 2018 Australian Open – a print inspired by Waves of Change.

It’s a pity that the timing of its launch was so unfortunate, as Venus lost on Day 1 in Melbourne, before the new line was even made available on EleVen’s official website. 

As EleVen explains, the collection’s geometric overlapping bold colors – Turkish sea, orange, and turquoise – illustrate a women’s ability to conquer the world with a powerful sense of renewal.

For the promo, Venus chose to pose in the Aztec On-Track Jacket and Aztec Flutter Skirt, but tennis dresses are highlights of every collection and this time Venus created a halter-neck one, called the Aztec Pursuit Dress, whose contrast blue neckline matches accent panels on the sides of the racerback. Adorable!

The collection features a really wide variety of clothing items, equipping tennis players from head to toe, but here I’m presenting some of my favorites. I like the faux-racerback of this Aztec Tracer Short Sleeve Top. When it comes to this long-sleeve top, it reminds me of Simona Halep’s Adidas long-sleeve top from previous season’s Melbourne collection, but I love how EleVen took things up a notch with the printed cuff contrast in the asymmetrical design.

I’m also a fan of these teeny tiny slits that enhance the above Aztec Volley Cap-Sleeve Top (how cute are those small cap sleeves!) and the loose orange Aztec Raceday Top.

Venus is definitely raising the bar with the Aztec collection, as she’s introduced a range of completely new silhouettes and ideas, boosting them with a lively, mood-lifting print. Do you agree that Venus is making a really fresh fashion start in 2018?
