When it comes to sports, Serena Williams is hands down the GOAT. We’re not just talking about women’s tennis or tennis as a whole. We’re talking about all sports and all athletes from the past and present. Over the years, Serena has shown that she has no limits, especially on the court, which is why the Nike x Off-White collaboration comes as no surprise to us.
Virgil Abloh, Louis Vuitton’s menswear artistic director, Kanye West’s creative director, DJ, and founder of Off-White, has collaborated with the likes of Ikea and Nike, and now, Serena Williams. “With Serena, we have one of our generation’s most powerful, inspiring athletes as the muse,” said Virgil. “I was trying to embody her spirit and bring something compelling and fresh to tennis.”
The Queen Collection is centered around Serena’s love of ballet and features some of the Off-White designer’s most sought-after pieces like The 10: Air Max 97 and The 10: Nike Blazer Mid SW. Serena will be rocking a special PE edition of her NikeCourt Flare 2 along with a tennis dress that “has sort of a ballerina-esque silhouette to symbolize her grace,” according to Virgil. Take a sneak peek at the collection and Serena’s 50th edition US Open outfit ahead.
