stripe for the picking

May 8, 2009


We here at TSF are suckers for stripes (you should see our closet!), so we’re up to our ears in glee that there are lots of ways to show off some bold patterns this season.

At Nike, the Spring Trend Group plays with bright 80s colors — think pink, lime, seafoam green — on charcoal and white backgrounds. The youthful combination looks perf on Rafa Nadal and Juan Martin del Potro. Good call on placing the stripes just on the front of the shirts, btw. K-Swiss has a similar pattern in black on a white casual tee. A vertical pattern is all over Y-3’s beach bag (you’ll never lose your spot on the beach!), and a nautical version is detail on some japanese lowtop sneakers.

Take a look after the cut…


sightings in the stands: when in rome…

While there’s something to be said about skin and paint, it’s refreshing to see folks cheering for their favorite tennis players in other ways. Like the Italians. Leave it to this group of guys to class up the pedestrian spell-a-name-with-shirts scenario: a bold orange tee punctuated by clean silkscreened type. (We didn’t expect anything less than fashion perfection, though. Remember — this is the same tourney that gave us one of the best ballgirl outfits in recent memory.)

That being said, this doesn’t take the cake from the matador who cheered Rafa in Australia!

Scoreline: Unfortch for Roger Federer, his claycourt season hasn’t gone well so far this year. He got denied a spot in the quarterfinals by countryman Stan Wawrinka. And R-Fed lost in three sets to Nole Djokovic at the Masters Series Roma.
