Ahead of this year's Wimbledon, which kicks off on June 28, Uniqlo and Roger Federer give us a look at what the tennis champ will be wearing to the tournament – while also giving us a few suave styling lessons just in time for summer.
Uniqlo's Wimbledon performance-wear items were designed in consultation with Roger Federer and Kei Nishikori and will be worn in their upcoming competitions. As a result, the garments are both technically built for the needs and preferences of athletes on the competitive Wimbledon grounds, as well as reflecting the sport's elegant style.
The 2021 Wimbledon Championship models feature green and blue trim reminiscent of the iconic Wimbledon grounds, while the UNIQLO 20 models feature the players’ DRY-EX polo shirts in bright red. Roger Federer's model is a stylish design with a delicate line check pattern on a clean, white base. Light blue and green accents casually adorn the collars and sleeves. Both kits employ mapped meshing to provide breathability for comfort in the hot summer weather.
The Wimbledon kits and UNIQLO 20 models are releasing in conjunction with the relaunch of Roger Federer’s iconic “RF”-logo cap, which makes its return in eight new colors.
While the collection is created for on the court, we can't help but picture ourselves on the go in these sleek pieces. With the perfect trim shorts and matching polos – and of course an "RF" cap to top it all off – we think we just found the perfect summer fit.
The 2021 Wimbledon Championships game wear models will release on June 21st with the UNIQLO 20 game wear models releasing on July 8th. The collections range in price from $8 to $40 USSD and will be available in both kids and adult sizes in select UNIQLO stores and online.
