As the tennis world gears up for the 2024 Australian Open, Nike unveils its latest Melbourne collection, set to capture the essence of the city’s vibrant beaches while delivering top-tier performance and style on the court. The new items come in vivid green, sophisticated mauve, and refreshing light yellow, while we’re yet to see which specific pieces the WTA players will choose to wear at the season’s first Grand Slam.
Inspired by the infectious energy of Melbourne’s coastal charm, the Nike Melbourne collection is a symphony of color-blocking mastery and tonal knit textures. The pieces boast a streamlined design that prioritizes comfort, performance, and effortlessly sleek athletic silhouettes. With an emphasis on captivating hues, engaging textures, and figure-flattering cuts, each item encapsulates a perfect synergy of style and purpose.
One of the spotlight pieces from this collection is the Nike Melbourne Slam Dress. Made from 89% polyester and 11% elastane, it champions comfort and innovation with Nike’s Dri-FIT technology for superior sweat-wicking during intense matches. Its textured exterior, strategic back cutout, and elastic back strap offer breathability, unrestricted movement, and a chic on-court presence.
Here you can see the stadium green/white version of the dress, as well as the variant in smokey mauve. The third color combo available is gym red/barely volt/white.
The collection also offers the Nike Melbourne Slam Tank, crafted from 80% polyester and 20% elastane. With its breathable Dri-FIT material and stretchy feel, the design ensures that players remain comfortable and focused throughout their matches. The racerback tank’s slightly textured material, along with the strategically placed cutout on the back, ensures superior ventilation and freedom of movement.
The tank comes in three vibrant color combinations: smokey mauve/platinum violet/white, stadium green/white, and soft yellow/black. It’s designed to complement the Nike Spring Advantage Mini Pleat Skirt, which is conveniently available in corresponding hues.
The Australian Open begins on January 14. As the tournament draws closer, we anticipate more updates on Nike’s latest apparel and shoes. Additionally, all eyes are on defending champion Aryna Sabalenka’s custom tennis dress. It will also be interesting to see what Nike has in store for Naomi Osaka.
