The 23-time Grand Slam champion, Serena Williams is one of the best dressed tennis player. This year, the champion is taking her style to another level! She would be wearing a piece designed by Virgil Abloh for Nike.
The collection consists of a black one-shoulder dress with Nike’s logo along with Abloh’s signature quotation graphics -this one reads Logo- and a full tulle skirt. The champion would play in a pair of NikeCourt Flare sneakers and sport an Abloh-designed jacket while off court.
Abloh told vogue via email that;
When he was thinking about outfits for Serena, he was thinking about her playing the game and her aesthetic while she is. Also about the confidence that’s needed while playing at the top level of tennis. This is very far from a design-by-numbers project. As you can tell by her personality in her play, she’s very much involved in her aesthetic. She has a level of creativity with how she expresses herself in terms of clothing in any event, so he made everything with her logic in mind. We traded images and there was a lot of back-and-forth to get this done in short order.
Serenja Williams said that;
When she first tried on the dress, she felt very strong and feminine at the same time. It has all the really strong elements, from the leather to that really cool stretchy material. she felt so feminine in the tutu, which is probably her favorite part of it. It really embodies what she always say: that you can be strong and beautiful at the same time
