Nike/Virgil Abloh x Serena Williams “The Queen Collection”
When Serena Williams arrives at Flushing Meadows, her outfits turn heads. The denim skirt in 2004 (part of her Gladiator look), the pink leopard-print dress in 2014 and many, many more. The match attire that Williams brings to New York City is as declarative in style as it is bold in function; she’s won six majors to date in the city, after all.
For this year’s tournament in New York, its 50th edition, Williams will once again make a statement wearing a dress created by designer Virgil Abloh. The Queen Collection, the result of a union between Nike and Abloh for Serena, bring these influential forces in tennis and fashion together, uniting two transcendent figures who find common ground in pushing boundaries and inspiring youth.
