FILA To Debut 2 New Tennis Collections In Paris

In a couple of weeks, FILA will debut two stunning new tennis collections on the clay courts of Roland Garros. The men’s Legend and women’s Heritage collections, which feature modern twists on classic FILA tennis styles, will be worn by top sponsored athletes Marin Cilic, John Isner, Sam Querrey, Karolina Pliskova and Kiki Bertens. These collections, along with new colorways of FILA’s top performance tennis shoe, the Axilus 2 Energized, will be unveiled in Paris.

Women’s Heritage Collection

The women’s Heritage collection offers an exciting array of functional pieces including a stunning drop waist polo dress; a crisp A-line skort with playful back pleats; a flattering crossback cami with bust ruching; a racerback tank paired with a lightweight, colorblocked skort; a casual, comfortable short; and a Heritage dress featuring striped rib trim at the neck and arms for an elegant yet modern look. A sleeveless tank, short sleeve top, and traditional polo round out the striking collection.

Heritage draws inspiration from FILA’s legendary archives in Italy, utilizing the brand’s classic hues of red, navy and white accentuated by the addition of a bold electric blue. Past and present blend seamlessly in traditional silhouettes enhanced with modernized fits and stylistic elements. The Heritage jacket – offered in white and electric blue – and a classic navy blue pant with bottom snaps complete the stylish ensemble. Each Heritage collection piece features SPF 50 sun protection, premium plus stretch jersey and moisture wicking technology.
