The period after the Australian Open tends to be calm in the world of tennis fashion, but even though there were no new collections that debuted in February, the WTA courts were nothing short of stylish.
Marija Zivlak of Women's Tennis Blog gives us an overview of the outfits that marked February’s tournaments.
Nike’s Spring 2018 separates absolutely dominated the courts this February, as dozens of top players rocked the kit, including the World No.1 and winners of the month’s Premier-level events.
Top-ranked Simona Halep launched her cooperation with Nike at the Qatar Total Open, wearing the NikeCourt Zonal Cooling Top and Dri-FIT Ace Shorts, the same outfit that Petra Kvitova wore en route to her St. Petersburg and Doha titles, while Elina Svitolina paired the shorts with the collection’s NikeCourt Dri-FIT Slam Tank during her run to the champion’s trophy in Dubai.
Nike’s athletic ensemble is enhanced by sweat-wicking stretchy material in a pale shade accented by sided stripes. Engineered mesh zones are there to bring additional functionality and visual interest to a classic sporty silhouette. Prioritising both style and performance, Nike equipped its representatives with color-coordinated accessories and Vapor X shoes.
Svitolina opted for racerback comfort of the NikeCourt Slam Tank, a familiar cut but a brand new feel provided by a soft Dri-FIT jersey.
Karolina Pliskova always wears outstanding classic designs and this month the Czech gave new life to Fila’s archival navy, red and white palette combined in color-blocks and stripes of different length and thickness for a timeless look that is modern and bold at the same time.
The Heritage clothes always prove that an innovative approach to tried-and-true cuts and color combinations can create a fashion-forward design that feels ultra-now.
Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova is a new member of the Sofibella family and the cooperation immediately attracted attention thanks to a beautiful Paris Volley Dress, a grey halter-neck piece featuring contrast binding enhanced by electric yellow accents. Black mesh racerback features a keyhole for added style and functionality. Besides its visual appeal, the dress captivates with its soft-to-the-touch feel, as well as performance features such as UV 50+ protection, moisture-wicking material and antibacterial properties.
Strategic ventilation channels and Gel-Cool technology make Asics’ separates sported by Julia Goerges stand out from an ordinary tank and skort combo. The porcelain blue top is an excellent stretch-construction piece featuring distinctive racerback design and flexible tape on centre back for added comfort and breathability.
The lightweight skort from Asics’ new collection includes flexible Shindo tape on the side, which provides extra ventilation and makes the item more comfortable and unique.
