We’re in the middle of a major world crisis because of coronavirus and tennis is consequently heavily affected as well, but you know that tennis apparel companies prepare their collections well in advance, so we’re still having new releases. Lucky in Love and Bethanie Mattek-Sands have launched the Deco Stride fun performance fashion that combines unique retro and 1990s surf style prints as a nod to the WTA star’s trademark style of mixing and matching unique prints and patterns.
Lucky in Love is known for creating outfits that merge streetwear and tennis couture. This time their inspiration were funky pop and surf style prints of the 1990s, as well as iconic Miami art deco architecture and colors of the 1920s.
The MIA Cropped Bomber Jacket, the new collection’s centerpiece, was designed with the intention of making a statement, without having to say a word. Inspired by the grand ballrooms and terrazzo floors of Miami’s Deco beach era glam hotels, the jacket also serves as a representation of Bethanie’s personality and the city’s exuberance for a game it loves.
The Hi-Miami Pop Pleated/Hi-Retro Color Block Pleated Skirt feature Lucky in Love’s unique BMS compression waistbands—devoid of any elastic—that eliminate muffin tops and have Bethanie declaring them as the most comfortable skirts she’s ever worn. So whether you’re serving up aces or being served cocktails, sporting these pleated skirts is always a win-win.
The Long Deco Dot Mesh Skirt is influenced by the glamorous terrazzo floors, as the print does justice to the deco hotels it’s inspired by. Constructed with Lucky in Love’s signature BMS compression waistband that provides ultimate comfort, one can argue that even though this might be a tennis skirt it’s really meant to be worn out.
The MIA Throwback Tank (above left) was designed with a looser-fitting feel in mind, thanks to mesh material toward the bottom hem. As for its design, the tank features ’90s throwback vibes, pastel color-blocking and an art deco-inspired print.
The Tie-Back Tank 2.0 (above right) features large slits on the back that can be worn tied up or left open. The material is a soft pindot mesh with sheer power mesh accents on the back and at underarms.
The Delano Mesh Long-Sleeve Top in color lemon is a jersey tank top with a mesh overlay that creates keyhole cutouts at the upper chest and back. The collection also includes the edgy black Cut It Up Crop Top with laser cuts on the chest and sides.
The Deco Stride clothes are available in all tennis stores across the USA, including online at Tennis Warehouse, where select Lucky in Love apparel is currently discounted 25%.
