(FILA Global) - FILA sponsored tennis players will debut two colorful collections on court in Melbourne in January. Both the men’s Set Point and women’s Ruffles & Stripes collections feature a combination of light, fun colors coupled with a variety of new and traditional FILA silhouettes. All FILA sponsored tennis players will wear the brand’s newest performance tennis shoe, the Axilus 2 Energized.
Men’s Set Point Collection
FILA’s Set Point collection may feature icy blue and white colorways, but that’s not the only thing that is cool about this competition-inspired tennis line. Once again FILA has combined its signature classic style with advanced clothing technologies to create a wet-effect print embossed mesh. This feature, coupled with cooling side vents and a moisture-wicking breathable fabric, make the Set Point collection incredibly comfortable on court. Pieces include the heritage-inspired henley, solid and color-blocked crews and a striped polo to pair with blue or black shorts. This stylish on court look is complete with the handsome Set Point Jacket and Pant, both featuring accordion tape that expand as you move to reveal contrasting colors, from ankle to wrist.
Women’s Ruffles & Stripes Collection
Femme meets fierce in Ruffles & Stripes, FILA’s latest on court women’s style. Inspired by classic Hollywood muses, the aptly named Ruffles & Stripes collection showcases mesh ruffles couple with inverted Chevron stripes in light pink, white and black to create a collection of graceful, subtly bodycon silhouettes and styles. The Ruffles & Stripes collection features a wide selection of tanks, skorts, dresses and more, including the Stripe Jacket and Stripe Pant, which goes from straight to skinny in seconds. All pieces feature FILA’s breathable premium plus jersey fabric with SPF 50, allowing for maximum comfort on court.
Axilus 2 Energized
Meet the newest model of FILA’s popular performance tennis shoe: the Axilus 2 Energized. The lightweight, flexible shoe offers a perfect blend of style, comfort and performance. Designed for a sport that continues to evolve, these stylish shoes will carry athletes across the court quickly and comfortably without sacrificing stability. The Axilus 2 Energized features an updated outsole and also includes breathable sockliners made of anti-slide nylon.
Two beautiful new colorways of the Axilus 2 Energized will appear on court in Melbourne. Male FILA sponsored tennis athletes such as Marin Cilic and John Isner will wear the little boy blue/black/white style while female FILA athletes including Karolina Pliskova and Ashleigh Barty will debut the crystal rose/salmon rose/white colorway.
