Along with dressing up the tennis officials for this year’s Wimbledon, Ralph Lauren will also be releasing a collection inspired by the 121-year-old grass tournament. Here’s a blurb about the pieces (taken from RL’s press release):
Classic cabled tennis sweaters are reworked as slim sweater vests, shawl collar, cardigans and flirty, feminine, day dresses. Tipped t-shirts and polo shirts pair with pants and shorts in linen and cotton. Recalling the elegant heritage of the game, chic striped blazers, button down shirts, repp ties and ribbon belts are shown in the tournament’s signature shades of Wimbledon purple and Bently green.
That photo above has my picks from the men’s and women’s collections:
Top row (left to right): tipped polo, big pony polo, track jacket
Middle row: crest sports coat, v-neck cardigan, tennis polo
Bottom row: white polo with green stripes, drawstring chinos, drawstring chinos detail
