Shifting from a US aesthetic rooted in American football to a more European flavor reflects Elevenparis’s own trans-Atlantic ethos. However, it also nods to the borderless, international culture that streetwear now represents.
The Sergio Tacchini x Elevenparis collection uses an array of vintage colors and hues that hark back to Tachini’s disruptive debut on the tennis courts during the 1970s. Back then, tennis players traditionally only wore white—and still do for the lawn tennis of Wimbledon. But it was the Tacchini brand worn by legendary names like John McEnroe, Pete Sampras, and Martina Hingis, that brought color to the courts.
The instantly-wearable collection takes from that sporting past and reworks it through a 2018 lifestyle lens. The result is a glorious athleisure look that can be worn in total, or paired easily with your other wardrobe items. The collection couldn’t have been timed more perfectly, with tennis-inspired athleisure ‘fits filling our Instagram feeds of late from luxury houses to independent designers.
Now you can add independent labels to the mix too. Check out the Elevenparis collection in the lookbook above, shot by rising Parisian photographer Raffaele Cariou in Paris’s 19th arrondissement. Then shop the collection below.
