Fila Australian Open 2018 Tennis Fashion | The Women
For the 2018 tennis season’s first Grand Slam, FILA has unveiled the latest collections to be worn by its sponsored tennis stars. For the women that means a new Heritage collection – and I love this group, timeless, yet modern and bold.
Heritage continues to utilize the brand’s iconic (and gorgeous) red, white and navy palette, with archival design details like stripes, color blocking and pleats. Classic silhouettes are now modern, with pieces such as the loose layering practice tank, slim fit pant and striped pleated skort.
Updated proportions include a long cropped fit on the Heritage Jacket and fresh details like a large FILA outline print.
The collection’s premium plus jersey fabrications make for premier texture throughout. The Heritage styles will be worn by FILA players including Karolina Pliskova (above), who is currently ranked #6 on the WTA Tour.
The full Heritage line features an assortment of tops, with four tank top styles, a polo shirt and a long sleeve shirt. To pair back to the tops, the collection consists of three skirts, including pleated and striped designs (OMG!!!!) . Also offered are two types of shorts, in both woven and double layer options. The Heritage Pleated Dress was crafted with a contrast color back and upper arm panels, and striped rib detailing at the armholes and front pleats. The range also includes versatile pieces like the Heritage Jacket and Heritage Pant, designed to take wearers beyond the court.
Here are some of the combination options:
The Heritage collection retails from $28 to $90.
