fashion focus: nike + rafa nadal’s spring ’08


Rafael Nadal lost early to fashionable Italian Andreas Seppi at last week’s ABN AMRO World Tennis Tournament (just FYI, none of the eight seeds made it past the second round).

Fortunately for the Mallorcan, his poor performance was offset by a new outfit from Nike. Rafa wears his usual uniform from the Global Power collection: the sleeveless tank, the pirate pants, and the wristbands and headband. But instead of the Engine Orange that started out the year, he’s moved onto New Blue.

Get the look: Nike Global Power Sleeveless Top, $55; 3/4 pants, $55; Swoosh bandana, $8; and Swoosh doublewide wristbands, $8. Unfortch, the top doesn’t come in the white/new blue colorway. Nor do the wristbands.


  1. I’m really not a fan of Rafael Nadal – comes across so aroggant unlike Federer.

  2. Thank heavens he’s dropped the AO outfit – woven vomit. Was at Rotterdam – this is much easier on the eye.

    Not a huge fan of his playing style but Nadal’s a sweetheart.

  3. If anyone wants it, this top is available at in the new blue colorway. I wish I could get my hands on the wristbands and bandana in new blue yargh!
