Wilson and Kith have announced the release of an extensive tennis-themed collection.
The timing and announcement couldn’t be more fitting as it’s set to align with the 2021 U.S Open tournament which takes place in Kith’s home city of Queens, New York. With styles created for men, women, and children, the entire collection is comprised of 160 pieces.
Starting with the men, 77 unique styles range from varsity jackets and collared shirts to loungewear and t-shirts. Combining Wilson’s passion for sportswear and Kith’s livable everyday wear, both brands have really honed in on the use of color and material for the collection. Wilson’s signature khaki, green and navy palette gives new meaning to Kith’s silhouettes, providing a mesh of classic and reimagined pieces. Bringing the two together, hits of co-branding are found throughout.
Moving on to women, a 27-piece offering comes in the form of more knit than khaki. Taking on an off-white, navy and burgundy dressing, with a few dusty tones in between, there’s more of a heritage approach to the design. Performance is not compromised for design, however, as signature on-court styles like the Rae, Alexa, Mulberry and Erika short, as well as the Chelsea appear. More co-branding and details like patches, embroidery and paneling round out this portion.
As for the kids, 19 styles take inspiration from the men’s silhouettes. The color palette and styles cover sizes from babies to toddlers to teens. Onesies to outwear are given the knit treatment, also drawing features from the men’s and women’s designs.
To finish off, 37 accessories and pieces of sports equipment were added to the collection. Caps, visors, bucket hats, sweatbands, towels, socks, keychains and a Corkcicle canteen are among the offering. A special Wilson Pro Staff 97 Racquet and accompanying leather bag are also available.
The entire Kith for Wilson collection will release September 3rd via Kith’s site and US flagship stores. Take a closer look at the collection below.
