A stroll down memory lane: A quick video piece on women’s tennis fashion throughout history.

(OT) Sleeping in transit: My buddy Matthew designed a jacket called Excubo which helps create private ‘nap time’ space when you’re out in public. Check out the segment CNN produced on “cutting edge designs” which featured this piece. (photo via gizomodo)

Fashion week sighting: Boris Becker at L.A.M.B. — that’s Gwen Stefani‘s line. NYT‘s Cathy Horyn skewers the collection. Too bad.

Advantage, Tennis: Portfolio.com laments the loss of Anna Wintour and Stefano Tonchi to the U.S. Open finals (when they should have been front row at a few fashion shows). Boo hoo?

Virginia Slims at Michael Kors: The latest presentation from Michael Kors harked back to the days of Virginia Slims (think Chrissie Evert and Billie Jean King). The show got great reviews, including one from Suzy Menkes. The models strut out to the Xanadu soundtrack:

“The Kors show was as fast and as direct as a hard hitter on the tennis court. Out came shorts, dresses and then every angle on American sportswear, from a lean safari jacket and pantsuit to trapeze minidresses shaded in a cocktail of mint, lime, orange and peach. They had a tropical vitality, while white served as a symbol of freshness, as it does on the tennis court.”

Pavarotti, R.I.P.: Tennis lost another fan in Luciano Pavarotti, who died this past Thursday at the age of 71. Bud Collins writes a great piece on how the great tenor loved the sport.

Macao != Times Square?: While the folks behind The Venetian Macao — the world’s largest casino — hope that their brand can withstand the shadiness of that Chinese territory, we’re just glad that the stage is set for one of the R-Fed vs. Pistol Pete exos this fall. (UD and IHT)

masha licks her wounds in bryant park, nole’s box

September 9, 2007

Maria Sharapova hung around in New York this week even though she made a quick exit as she tried to defend her 2006 U.S. Open title.

So she spent today making the rounds, first stopping by Bryant Park for Fashion Week.

She took in Peter Som‘s show, likely wearing something of his design; not sure. We love the peep-toe pumps, though! That’s Peter on the right.

Then she also sat front row at the Michael Kors show which started not too soon after. She was carrying a pretty cute clutch.

And to cap off her afternoon she joined the Djokovic camp in the player’s box for today’s final against Roger Federer. All the folks were wearing adidas‘s Summer YOC Polo in the white/red/blue colorway, which is also Serbian colors. Maria and fellow Nole guest Robert De Niro opted not to wear the shirts.

JNP wonders what this cameo means, and so does the press. They asked Nole about it after the finals match:

Q. Maria Sharapova was in your box and also Robert De Niro. What are those two relationships with you? Somebody had to ask.

Read Novak’s answer and the follow-up questions after the cut.
