Venus Williams launches new fashion collection
The 40 year old former World No. 1 has launched a new collection of tenniswear under her clothing line EleVen, which is called BOLD.
Speaking to the Refinery29 website, Williams says, "I’ve always viewed tennis apparel as being functional yet chic. The pieces are so versatile and can take you from a workout to running errands to hanging out at home while being comfortable and still looking great,.
Right now, I think people are leaning more towards effortless closet staples that are not only easy to wear all day long, but also elevate their look — and I love that a cute tennis skirt can do that! I wanted the collection to embody each woman’s essence through bright and colorful designs that make her feel like an 11 out of 10 when wearing these pieces, so she feels confident and empowered to push her limits to be better than her best self”.
On the brand's Instagram page, Venus says, "This tennis collection is full of fun, bright colors and a playful camouflage print + the pro-dri performance feature will keep you nice and dry all match long."
