Nike introduces a cape-jacket to sports fashion with Serena Williams & Virgil Abloh

Wilson Blade 9

Tennis fashion is getting increasingly extravagant by the day and ahead of the 2019 French Open Serena Williams is pushing the boundaries further more by introducing Nike’s cape-jacket designed by Virgil Abloh under his Off-White brand.

Nike is releasing this extraordinary cape-jacket and a matching skirt, together with a limited-edition T-shirt and hat as the 23-time Grand Slam champion’s kit for Paris. The print of the cape-jacket includes French words “mother”, “champion”, “queen”, and “goddess”.

Nike’s press release reveals where the new clothes will be available: These items will release on in Europe and North America and sell at Nike Champs-Elysees and P75 in Paris once Serena takes the court.

Serena and Virgil first cooperated during the tennis icon’s controversy-filled 2018 tennis fashion year, when the famed designer and Louis Vuitton men’s artistic director created two versions of a memorable tutu dress with a single long sleeve and nude colorblock at chest for the US Open.

In other news, Virgil gifted Serena a special pair of his blue Off-White x Nike Air Force 1 Low University Blue sneakers, which are still not available to the general public. Earlier this month, Serena attended the camp-themed Met Gala in a neon yellow Versace dress and the Off-White x Nike Air Force 1 Volt kicks.
