Plein Sport presented Spring Summer 2019 Menswear and Womenswear collections, on Saturday 16th June, during the recently finished Milan Fashion Week. Inspired by tennis, the collection was presented on a full-size grass court surrounded by palm trees, magically transporting the audience to the Beverly Hills Tennis Club.
Embodying the stylish flair of Björn Borg and the take-no-prisoners attitude of John McEnroe, the Plein Sport men are tough, toned Grand Slam-ers. The fresh-faced girls are young Billie Jean King’s: gripping their rackets, they’re focused and determined, champions ready to win their mixed match. Like the game of tennis, their clothes are timeless and elegant. Green, white and navy dominate the palette of this Spring/Summer collection. Key pieces include training jackets with piping detail, block-colour tracksuits, V-neck knit jumpers, chevron polo shirts, knee-length shorts and pleated mini-skirts. Complete with headbands, visors and wristbands, the look might be vintage influenced but it’s remixed for the sporting demands of today. Technical fabrics, breathable materials and lightweight engineering ensure this wardrobe is fit for smash volley action. And emblazoned throughout – across hoodies, towels and even swimwear – a special Plein Sport emblem featuring two crossed tennis rackets.– from Plein Sport
