Nike have created a capsule collection for five time Wimbledon champion Roger Federer as he prepares to retain his crown this year. The collection shows strong similarities to last year as the aesthetic is of course very minimal with the traditional white the basis.
“This year we took inspiration from a jacket in the Nike Sportswear line, the M-65. Based on this modern interpretation of a classic military silhouette from 1965, we used the body as a starting point and created a tailored look for Roger to wear when walking on and off court. This contemporary piece is intricately hand-crafted and includes engraved zipper pulls with premium detailing throughout the garment that’ll give Roger a clean, understated look as he walks on court. The herringbone texture speaks to traditional menswear, tailoring elements, bespoke suits, and classic menswear fabric.
There is also a coordinating vest, polo and trousers that Roger can wear in different ways depending on the weather throughout the tournament. These have also been designed to be worn for his pre-match warm-ups as they incorporate Dri-FIT fabric technology that works to keep them cool and wick sweat away from the skin.”
