Bethanie Mattek Sands has always been known for her eccentric on-court fashion and at the 2019 Australian Open she finally launched her first, limited-edition collection, created in cooperation with Lucky in Love. After that Melbourne range, inspired by Bethanie’s bold tattoos, let’s have a look at what the American is set to debut at the upcoming tournaments in her home country, as well as at Roland Garros and Wimbledon.
Since the Lucky in Love brochure only presents this Palm Desert Bomber Jacket as Bethanie’s choice for the BNP Paribas Open in Indian Wells, I guess she’ll continue to wear the BMS + Lucky in Love Aussie Mesh Crop Top and the Aussie Hi-Pleated Scallop Skirt, as it’s also a tattoo-inspired look.
At the Miami Open, players tend to pick bright and daring colors influenced by the surrounding vibrant culture and beaches. Bethanie’s eye-catching color of choice will be neon yellow. Otherwise, the items combine black and white, as well as color disco, that we can see in the bomber jacket, which seems to be shiny black. Lighting bolts are also incorporated in some items.
The Roland Garros collection is all about a busy, predominantly black-and-white print that includes checkerboard pattern and words “bam” and “ace”. The craziest item from this range will be the hi-metallic pleated skirt shown in bottom left corner.
Interestingly, the Wimbledon collection’s color palette includes orange frost and silver camo. I can’t see a single all-white item, as everything is either colored or features a star print. I can’t see these outfits being allowed on the courts of Wimbledon, but we’ll see what Bethanie will eventually wear.
The Wimbledon long-sleeve top has interesting cutout sleeves. I’m also looking forward to seeing the tie back tank design — available in all these three collections (above pictured in top right corner).
What do you think about Bethanie as a designer? Are you glad that the extravagant tennis player is creating clothes so that more athletes can dress like her? My favorite will probably remain to be the Aussie Open collection.
