this look incorporates the entire aesthetic of the collection. being the first piece the designers created, the vintage-inspired tennis skirt is a canvas material with custom bubblegum pink fabric in the pleats. the cropped crewneck exaggerates the nontraditional tennis color, electric blue, with the title of the collection embroidered on the chest.
the top and shorts are the main inspiration of this collection, as they are made of pink custom fabric, detailing a repeated sketch of the Wimbledon trophy. worn over the set is a clear vinyl dress secured with shoe laces. this dress was inspired by a 1960's Wimbledon outfit worn by Maria bueno, the most successful female south American tennis player in history.
the highlight of this look are the terrycloth shorts, hand-dyed 'tennis ball green' to mimic the color of the classic neon green tennis ball. the look is topped with a ribbed tube top, tied at the shoulders with pink shoe laces. embroidered with the title of the collection, the blue underwire on the chest pulls the look together.

this custom fabric is a repeated sketch of the Wimbledon trophy, the designers' main inspiration. the group used a vintage pattern from the 60s for their tennis skirt to say consistent with their vintage theme.
"We drew inspiration from powerful women in tennis, such as Serena Williams and Naomi Osaka"
"to us, performance is about self expression. it is about putting passion behind every outfit you put on in the morning."
"we were less inspired with the sport of tennis, but rather what athletes wear off the court -- typically more fashion focused."
