Virgil Abloh of Off_White teamed up with Nike to design Serena Williams the “Queen Collection”, a line up of sportswear for the tennis star’s U.S Open Tennis Championships.
The collection includes a bomber jacket, ballerina dresses in purple and black, and choice Nike sneakers including an upgrade of the Nike Court Flare 2. The collection was designed to be worn on and off court by Serena and includes a bag. The idea behind the collection’s ballerina tutu skirt and skintight upper body features is to reflect the gracefullness and aggressiveness of the game and the feminty and strength of Serena Williams.
The U.S Open which is the 50th edition of the tournament will run from 27th August 2018 until September 9th, 2018 and Nike plans for sales of items from the collection to coincide with the event.
