Fila-sponsored WTA players Karolina Pliskova, Ashleigh Barty and Kiki Bertens will debut the Aqua Sole collection at the upcoming BNP Paribas Open in Indian Wells.
The new collection brings refreshing, seaside hues — blue curacao, sharp green, and French blue — distributed in colorblocks, solids or in an abstract geometric print. Halter-inspired lines and curved seams make this Spring 2019 range feminine and flattering. Speaking of halter necklines, Venus Williams and her clothing line EleVen indulged in them throughout 2018.
When it comes to performance, moisture-wicking, breathable fabric and UPF 50+ protection insure the safety and comfort of athletes.
The collection’s standout piece is the Fila Aqua Sole Halter Dress. Both the print and blue curacao versions feature contrast binding at neck and armholes.
The new collection offers a large selection of tank styles in a variety of colors. My favorite is the Fila Aqua Sole Halter Tank, shown above in three variants. As you can see, the design is similar to the dress.
For those who love collars, Fila created the Aqua Sole Sleeveless Polo, a neat white design with subtle side stripes. Above in the middle you can see the Aqua Sole Mesh Racer Tank, which exists in three colors and all three versions feature a white mesh on the front and back. Although all these clothing items boasts UPF 50+ protection, the Aqua Sole Full Coverage Tank (shown above right) offers added protection from the sun, on top of providing comfort with its moisture-wicking performance stretch fabric and mesh insets on the back.
The assortment of tops can be paired with three skirt styles, from left to right: the Aqua Sole Pleated Hem Skirt, Aqua Sole Flare Skirt, and Aqua Sole Colorblocked Skirt.
To color match everything, Fila created the Axilus 2 Energized tennis shoe in the seaside palette. The lightweight, flexible model features an updated outsole and also includes breathable sockliners made of anti-slide nylon. Fila promises quick and comfortable movement without compromising stability.
Last year at the BNP Paribas Open, Fila also put aside their traditional red and navy tones and opted for a refreshing color palette — amparo blue, raspberry rose and blue atoll of the Sweetspot collection.
