Where the runway meets the street

Today we came across an interesting collaboration between Fila and Wallpaper magazine. The Italian sportswear brand worked with Wallpaper on two polo shirts.
“The first, ‘Grandslam’, pays homage to Borg: the front of the ‘Settanta’ polo knit sports gold pinstripes and a solid block of glyphs, which, on closer inspection, reveal themselves to be the scores of each of Borg’s championship matches. On the reverse are his runner-up results. For the jacket, the right sleeve was wrapped with the winning scores in gold, and the left sleeve with the silver runner-up scores.
For the second design, ‘Richie Tenenbaum’ polo shirts, Wallpaper* was inspired by Luke Wilson’s character – a former tennis great in the film The Royal Tenenbaums – to create an understated cut. The blue and white striped design is given a serve of humour with a graphic pair of sunglasses printed on the chest pocket.”
The limited edition polo shirts are now available at selected Fila retailers.
