Nike-sponsored WTA players Simona Halep, Elina Svitolina and many others will sport the brand’s new Melbourne collection at the 2021 Australian Open. The gorgeous new items feature earthy tones, bright trims, colorblocks and technical details. It looks like the Spring 2021 apparel that I showed you in late December will take the back seat.

What’s your first impression? I think this is Nike’s best collection in years. I love every single piece and every single detail. The designs are inspired by Nike’s outdoor All Conditions Gear.
The Nike Spring Slam Melbourne Tank and the Nike Spring Melbourne Skirt mixes colors parachute beige, wild berry, bright mango and obsidian (navy). The tank includes a cutout in the front and thick crisscross back straps with an O ring. The pleated skirt has a diagonal cut, which exposes the camo print built-in shortie and contrast color side pocket. The skirt’s colorblocking follows the asymmetrical hemline.
The color combinations and technical details of the Nike Spring Melbourne Dress draw inspiration from heritage Nike ACG style. The mock-neck dress includes a number of features that all work together to maximize ventilation: quarter-length zipper, cutout in the back, mesh panels, and stretchy knit fabric with Dri-FIT technology.
All of the above-mentioned products perfectly match the Nike Spring Melbourne Jacket, which combines a camo print, earthy tones and orange pops of color. One feature that stands out here is that you can carry this jacket on your shoulders when you’re not wearing it, thanks to inner straps with an adjustable buckle.
Nike’s tennis shoes for the 2021 Australian Open are updated with purple camo and silver accents, such as these Air Zoom Vapor Cage 4 and Air Zoom GP Turbo models.
