nothing but english sophistication

June 29, 2008

Hey, everyone. Enjoying a nice sunny Southern California Sunday at a friend’s pool. Before I head out, though, I wanted to leave you with these wonderful pics from the 2008 Wimbledon lifestyle collection from Polo Ralph Lauren. (Special thanks to PRL for sending these our way.)

So what’s in this newest line?

Classic cabled tennis sweaters are reworked as stylish halterneck tops (TSF is a big fan).

The Wimbledon blazer appears in cream jersey with preppy navy and white ribbon piping, and the classic tennis dress is evoked with fresh, flirty striped cotton shirt dresses.

Cableknit vests and polo shirts pair with pants and shorts in linen and cotton.

Chic navy blazers, button down shirts, repp ties and ribbon belts are shown in the tournament’s signature shades of Wimbledon purple and Bentley green.

Shop: The men’s pieces are available here and the women’s here.

More: Check out some more wonderful sketches after the cut. The artist put some cute shoes (white and navy booties!) on some of the ladies. Take a look…

goodbye necklaces, hello bracelets?

Butter’s Bubble

Marat Safin is not only known for his on-court temperament but also for his necklaces. These days, though, he’s barely wearing a single chain on his neck. So what happened? Where did it all go?

Check out Marat’s wrist! I must say, it looks pretty cool on him!

What brand of watch is Marat wearing?

RL wimbledon court collection ’08

Emblazoned with the signature Ralph Lauren/Wimbledon crest, crisp navy and cream defines the modern look of on-court officials’ attire. Umpires’ uniforms include navy doeskin blazers with cream piping, paired with cream trousers or skirts, and traditional tennis sweaters. Combining fashion and function, ball persons’ track suits, shorts and polo shirts, feature high performance, fast-drying fabrics for maximum comfort and full range of motion.

the wimbledon ’08 online shop is almost a ghost town

June 29, 2008

Unlike the French Open online shop, which we loved, the Wimbledon shop looks ho-hum. Except for two things: the goods from Polo Ralph Lauren (more on that later) and this Fila SW19 limited edition sneaker:

They have only produced 1000 pairs of this shoe, named for the zip code of the AELTC.

Buy: Fila SW19 shoe, white/green/purple, £59.57.
