feminine jewelry to match sharapova’s masculine outfit

June 24, 2008

Tiffany & Co. continues its Grand Slam jewelry partnership with Maria Sharapova by dressing her lobes with these Swing Triple drop earrings.

The brilliant pair (made with diamonds and platinum) complemented Maria’s Nike tuxedo-inspired outfit, both of which showcased the Russian’s fashion sensibilities in her first-round Wimbledon win over Frenchwoman Stephanie Foretz. Maria beat the qualifier 6-1, 6-4.

for serena, there’s more besides the trench coat

June 24, 2008

Serena Williams‘ warm-up trench jacket got most of the buzz on Wimbledon’s first day (she split it with Roger Federer‘s cream-colored cardigan), so TSF wants to give some love to one of her outfit’s supporting characters: the Nike Heritage Print Club Bag.

The polyester and synthetic leather bag, with its retro print (country flags, newsprint, and a cartoon shoe airplane), brought a little spunk to her classy white ensemble.

sharapova’s sheer beauty

June 24, 2008

Maria Sharapova walked onto Court One for her first round match in this 2008 Wimbledon tournament wearing an ensemble from the Nike White/Gold Wimbledon collection. Finally, the menswear-themed outfit she’d revealed a few days ago was in full display.

The jacket is a single-breasted white warm-up with gold stitching on the collar lapel and front edge; plus a tie belt. What an excellent progression from her French Open windbreaker capelet earlier this month.

“I love men’s wear in general,” Sharapova said Tuesday after beating French qualifier Stephanie Foretz 6-1, 6-4 in the first round. “I love tuxedo jackets.”

For whatever reason, she omitted the wide-leg trousers from the warm-up sequence. We’ll see if it makes an appearance in a later round.

And her sheer racerback top turns tuxedo with a bib front. Her low-rise shorts have a wide-tailored waistband (with tab closure), pinstripes, and gold-stitched buttons.

So why all this fancy schmancy tailoring? In a press release, Nike mentioned that Maria’s attire was inspired by London’s history of bespoke tailoring.

le sigh: one less dress to see

June 24, 2008

I haven’t been able to do much writing these last few days (my day job is actually making me work), and trust me it’s been hard not to talk about Roger‘s cardigan, Masha‘s tux, Serena‘s Mackintosh, and all the other good stuff. I’ll post them later this week, though.

In the meantime, I just want to express my sadness that one of the TSF faves, Akiko Morigami, will not be strutting her Fila Japan stuff at this year’s tourney. She withdrew with a knee injury; Renato Voracova replaced her.

Get well soon!
