fashion focus: fila falls flat for fall

October 15, 2008

Was it just me, or did I totally see a pro-high fructose corn syrup ad on TV the other day. WTF?!

Now, back to our regularly scheduled programming…

The Hungarian Yeti: We haven’t seen much from Agnes Szavay for these summer and fall tournaments, which means we haven’t seen her flaunt Fila‘s latest collection.

Not that she’d have much to work with. The periwinkle blue of the summer colorway didn’t provide enough contrast to bright white of that Cap Sleeve Top (right), and the silhouette of the Heritage Dress wasn’t enough to save it from drowning against the colors of the courts at Flushing Meadows.

That being said, the dress showed promise (save for those unfortunate patches of sweat), and we love the trim on the Cami tank (above, left).

Meanwhile, the super-striped Heritage tee on the guys worn by Janko and Dmitry is the showcase of an otherwise so-so men’s line.

As for the fall collezione line (colorway: white/light brown), you won’t see this anywhere but on your local tennis courts. Check it out here.

Buy: Fila Women’s Summer Heritage Cami Tank, 34.99; V-Neck Tank, $39.99; Cap Sleeve Top, $34.99; Heritage Dress, $53.99; colorway: Periwinkle and Crystal blues.

Men’s Summer Heritage Stripe Top, $36.99; Heritage Crew, $32.99; colorway: Peacoat Navy and Surf the Web (!) blue.

Just because we can, here are some pictures of Janko Tipsarevic, dressed in Fila‘s summer Heritage Stripe Top.

Scoreline: He lost to fellow Serb Viktor Troicki in the round of 16 of Moscow and to Paul-Henri Mathieu in the quarters of Metz.

tennis’ George Clooney

Butter is back to weigh in on Marat’s current affairs

Where is my favorite Russian? Hmmm… His body is not into tennis (shoulder injury forced a withdrawal from Madrid, replaced by lucky loser Simone Bolelli), and, as everyone has found out recently, his head isn’t there either:

Instead, he’s been knockin back brewskies with some pretty ruskies, specifically pop singer Nastya Osipova.

What do you think? I almost fell off my chair when I watched this! haha… Is it just me, or do we all miss the Dasha-Marat era? I do! I know Tony Kornheiser does! What about the Silvia-Marat love story? Well, like Marat said before:

“If you date blondes for a long time, you would want a brunette. You have to have variety in life! (laughs). Besides, it really doesn’t matter, it needs to be interesting and not boring.” (Marie Claire Russia, 2007)

So don’t worry, Rich, we might not have to stare at Ms. Osipova’s dresses for too much longer. Who’ll be Marat’s next brunette? Ana Ivanovic?
