A WIN FOR KIM CLIJSTERS. A WIN FOR FILA.
In one of tennis’ great comeback stories, new mom Kim Clijsters clinched the U.S. Open title. And no one was happier than Fila. Throughout her run, Kim sported a classic red, white and blue FIla ensemble from the 2009 Women’s Heritage Collection. The 26-year old has already met with Fila’s apparel team to talk about styles for next Spring. Glam Gal can’t wait to see what’s in store!
Which other tennis star also signed a deal with Fila? None other than U.S. hottie James Blake. Fila and Blake joined forces to create a collection that is said to be inspired by James, his life and interests and incorporates the heritage of the Fila brand with a contemporary twist. Blake said he wanted the line transitional, to include styles that can be worn on-court and on a night out.
Fila and James Blake launched the Thomas Reynolds Collection (named after Blake’s father) at the 2009 U.S. Open. The full range of the line including tennis, fitness, lifestyle, golf and footwear items, will launch throughout the Spring/Summer 2010 season.
