The most memorable outfit at this year’s Wimbledon is probably Maria Sakkari‘s Adidas Parley London Crop Tank + Short ensemble. This entire Adidas collection, made in part with plastic ocean bottles found as waste in coastal areas, features laser-cuts and textural patterns inspired by Morse code.
Sakkari’s tennis shoe of choice is the Adidas Barricade.
Angelique Kerber‘s Adidas Parley London Dress features Y-back straps, that form a large triangular opening below, and laser-cut executions inspired by ocean activists. Just as in other items from the collection shown above, the pure white is contrasted by a yellow stripe detail on the front neckline.
Karolina Pliskova introduced Fila’s White Line collection that nurtures classic silhouettes with timeless performance rib insert detailing and elevated pinstripe lines. The Czech’s choice was the Fila White Line Racerback Tank and Fila White Line Skirt.
Arriving on the court, the former world No.1 Pliskova used the Fila White Line Jacket and the largest tennis racquet bag from the Wimbledon x Babolat collection.
Anett Kontaveit wore a white Lacoste tennis dress and also stored her racquets in the Babolat Pure 12 Pack Wimbledon Bag.
Two-time Wimbledon champion Petra Kvitova, Simona Halep, Amanda Anisimova and Emma Raducanu all opted for the Nike London Slam Dress, a short-sleeve design with mesh at the upper chest and back, and a unique type of pleats that meet in the front, not going all the way around.
When it comes to separates, the new Nike collection offers this slim-fitting London Slam Tank, highlighted by shoulder zippers that can be opened or closed, combined with the London Slam Skirt, a flirty silhouette with two curved tiers of micro pleats that flare as players run for the ball.
Serena Williams made a long-awaited return to action in a custom long-sleeve Nike dress. We can notice a floral pattern on the hem. In recent years, the tennis legend prefers to cover her body, so she also wears fishnet tights.
Jelena Ostapenko continues to endorse a small Latvian brand — DK ONE. At the French Open, she wore the most memorable outfit that featured contrast ruffles on the shoulders and the color scheme that combined vibrant pink with a black-and-white houndstooth pattern. The Wimbledon outfit is the same, only that now a lack of busy patterns makes it less eye-catching.
Ajla Tomljanovic delivers a retro aesthetic with a new brand on the Hologic WTA Tour — the Original Penguin. The Australian’s Penguin Core Veronica Dress is a classic short-sleeve design with a cute rounded collar and mesh hem trim. Black piping on the placket, collar and sleeves matches the black embroidered penguin logo on the left chest.
Tomljanovic also sported the Original Penguin separates, playing doubles with compatriot Daria Saville, who represented Lululemon.
Heather Watson‘s New Balance dress features a front zipper and black accent line around the neck.
Coco Gauff‘s fishnet-style outfit is custom New Balance for their biggest star.
Alize Cornet gave a lot of exposure to Lotto as she ended world No.1 Iga Swiatek‘s historic 37-match winning streak in the third round. Asics‘ representative Swiatek was supposed to wear a short-sleeve top, based on the brand’s pre-tournament announcement, but the Pole instead chose a tank, also with strategically mapped cooling zones.
Playing mixed doubles with Jamie Murray, Venus Williams launched her new EleVen whites highlighted by eye-catching details like angular mesh paneling and ruching that seamlessly integrate into off-the-court style. Above we can see the WTA legend in the EleVen Wavy Dress In Bright White, a racerback design with a wavy jacquard detail, while we also saw her sporting the EleVen Wavy Long Sleeve In Bright White and the Wavy Tennis Skirt In Bright White.
Mizuno has lost one representative, as Kirsten Flipkens said goodbye to her professional singles tennis career after a defeat to Simona Halep in the second round.
Marie Bouzkova represents Joma. On her left chest we can see her initials and a dolphin (she puts a dolphin emoji in most of her social media posts).
Alison Riske-Amritraj wore a simple white K-Swiss ensemble.
