Looking for something uniquely fashionable for the court? Loup has recently launched its Spring/Summer 2010 tennis collection. The distinctly youthful line blends retro fashion with functional materials, twelve different pieces in five colors. There is a girlie air to the collection, mostly conveyed by the model's poses I think. I actually popped one of Loup's dresses on a far stronger looking girl, and it looked great, still feminine, even with real tennis sneakers.
Pictured left is the Sheath dress with pocket (decorative only), a sleekly simple silhouette which includes a built in bra. It's 32 1/2" from shoulder to hem and comes in what they call deep purple (pictured here on left - it's blue to my eye), black and white, $95 USD.
The dress looks quite structured but the fabric is soft and stretchy (not clingy or tight). It is quick to dry as well. The company says that the line holds its color and shape workout after workout, wash after wash. I have not been able to test this but it's a good selling point given the prices of the items.
