Barbie is celebrating her 60th birthday this month, so Sergio Tacchini decided to create a tennis range inspired by the famous doll. Czech Barbora Strycova promoted the collection’s colorful tank and skort this week at the BNP Paribas Open, before losing to Simona Halep in the second round on Friday.
The outfit’s abstract print is taken from the Totally Hair Barbie dress, with the official colors aqua and magenta chosen by Mattel for the diamond anniversary.
Below the contrast Sergio Tacchini logo you can see the word “Barbie” written in the recognizable cursive font.
Strycova is not the only player connecting the tennis world to the iconic doll. WTA No.1 Naomi Osaka has been honored with her own Barbie, as Mattel celebrated International Women’s Day and included the young tennis star in the latest Barbie Role Models.
