Camila Giorgi may still have Mom working the thread and needle, but Giorgi's tennis fashions are clearly inspired by Denise Cronwall, a Florida based fashion designer that has outfitted Giorgi in the past.
If you take a look at Denise Cronwall's styles, you will see some of the influence, the lettuce eges, double skirts, flattering open necks, soft fabrics, and floral piping. Why not use the source of inspiration?
Well, WE certainly can. To those without perfect pecs, the elegantly sporty new groups includes a few body forgiving pieces as well as the close fitting styles. A selection from the blue based Scandinavian group is below.
Also new is Cronwall's Abisko Collection (selection below), a mango infused group perfect for year-round sunny climes - sleek, pretty and fun to wear. Many of the designs can be used for the gym, yoga, running a more.
Watch for Cronwall's designs on rising WTA player, Mona Barthel. She's pulling directly from Cronwall's line.
Floridians have kept activewear designer Denise Cronwall a tennis fashion secret too long. We want in. Girls, if you like your on-court look fitted, fun and kinda' flirty, take a look at this line.
"Guided by a feminine aesthetic and a love of elegant curves, textures and accentuating details, I design boutique style activewear for gracious women that like to express their elegance and style at all times," says Cronwall.
Sublimely soft, the fabrics are a dream to put on. The looks are edgy, a hint of Free People style here, but tennis-sensible and absolutely for the courts (the tops for example, have a lightly padded bra built in). Above is the Black Vintage Razor Back Top and Skirt, $85 USD each.
Cronwall's tennis presence is on the upswing and not just among those that play and lunch. Germany's Mona Barthel recently won her first premier title at the Open GDF Suez in Paris wearing the collection's Boho Dress, above, $136 USD, prompting the designer to rename the dress "Mona in Paris."
