fashion: agnes szavay + designer marta makany

August 31, 2007

At this year’s U.S. Open, Hungarian SEWTAer Agnes Szavay knocked off the hard-hitting Michaella Krajicek in the second round 7-6 (4), 6-3. She did so wearing the simple white dress she’s had all summer — an outfit designed by compatriot Marta Makany.

On the catwalk: Above are photos of of Makany’s ’07/’08 collection presented on Dec. 4, 2006 in Budapest. (And you can see clothes from previous collections in this video.)

More, more!: Szavay is next scheduled to face Russian Nadia Petrova. Let’s hope her success continues, if only so Makany can create more clothes for her. I’d like to see those layered pleat dresses on the court.

fashion round-up: nole, mathieu, clement, and the ladies in poland

paul-henri mathieu in estoril

Paul-Henri Mathieu goes for a Steve McQueen look at Estoril this week. He wore a very flattering adidas top all the way to the all-French semifinal against Gasquet. I could live without that seam running down the front of the torso, but the simplicity of the buttonless v-neck collar wins. (above, left)

— This might be old to you, but news to me: Arnaud Clement has cut off his mane. Good for you, Arnie. It’s about time you stopped hiding behind the sunglasses and the hair. (above, right; against Kohlschreiber, wearing Lacoste)

Novak Djokovic, ever the showman, went soccer-crazy for his fans. He won over the Lisboans by wearing a SL Benfica jersey earlier in the week (right), and he followed it up by wearing one from the Serbian national team for yesterday’s final (left). Portuguese soccer star Eusebio was even on hand at the trophy presentation.

— And as Off The Baseline pointed out, some of the ladies in Warsaw were unprepared for the freakishly cold weather at the J&S Cup in Poland. They layered with long-sleeved shirts under their halter dresses. It did not look pretty.
