Bag yourself an upgrade. A tennis racquet bag for the impeccably style savvy.
If a logo-emblazoned tennis bag doesn’t fit your style aesthetic take a look at Cortiglia. The company has released a line of luxury court bags that are as upscale as you can get without spending thousands.
Cortiglia tennis bags are made in Italy, constructed with lightweight but sturdy leather and canvas adorned with handcrafted hardware. The C monogrammed dust cover each comes in is the first sign that you’ve got a high-end bag.
Pictured above is the patent-leather Belvedere, $435 USD (here in Nero — the red one is gorgeous too), and just under that, same image, is the Marina design, $465 (also Nero). Below image is the Sonoma, $425 (in Bianco/Blu Marino), a funkier bowling bag kind of look.
Each style comes in multiple colors. All neatly accommodate two racquets, a Blackberry/iPhone or other, keys, wallet, a light jacket, towel, visor and a few cosmetics. I wouldn’t put shoes in these because of the fabric lining (unless of course you pop them in a separate bag).
Steffi Graf has the Marina Noir and another recently made Oprah’s O list.
Each Cortiglia bag has a full, durable zip opening making it easy to take essentials in and out. The fabric lining, a bright tangerine, makes it easy to spot little items inside (click on any of the images for a closer look).
For the woman who simply cannot compromise on quality and style at any time these are ultra chic.
