As one of the greatest tennis tournaments commences, Nike thought it would be fitting to create special packages as a tribute to two of the biggest names in tennis today, Roger Federer and Maria Sharapova.
Roger Federer will attempt to continue his dominance on the grass courts of Wimbledon as he looks to build on consecutive victories that began in 2003. The Roger Federer package will include a bespoke jacket, a sweater, and a warm-up trouser for warm-up on court pre-game, a luxury leather tennis bag, and an on-court performance outfit. Each piece adheres to the equipment and uniform guidelines set forth by the Wimbledon committee. However as the reigning champion of Wimbledon and one of the greatest players to ever swing a racket, Federer’s pieces all feature gold detailing as a tribute to his dominance.
For Maria Sharapova, a Wimbledon Tiered Pleats Tennis Dress was created. Under the tagline “Pretty Traditional”, this slogan represents not only the underlying beauty of the dress as well as a double meaning inferring its traditional design albeit with a non-conservative approach. Sharapova was also given the Wimbledon Blazer Mid Lux, a reinvented version of the classic Blazer basketball shoe. As part of the Grand Slam Lux Line, it combines top quality premium leather coupled with high-class touches such as satin ribbon laces. The sneaker also draws references to Maria’s appreciation of the Wimbledon Tennis Dress with ruffles on the back tab.
