FILA HONORS KIM CLIJSTERS WITH COMMEMORATIVE COLLECTION
As Kim Clijsters embarks on the end of her playing career, her longtime clothing sponsor, Fila, is bidding farewell to the tennis star with a special range of apparel and accessories. Kim debuted the first offerings in this limited edition collection at Wimbledon this week.
“It means so much to me that Fila developed this commemorative collection in honor of my retirement,” said Kim Clijsters. “Wimbledon has been an important place for me since I was very young, and it was where I played my first exhibition before I officially returned to tennis in 2009. It is only fitting that I debut this collection on Centre Court.”
The collection for Wimbledon consists of a selection of Kim’s favorite Fila tennis silhouettes. The all-white gear includes classic Fila styles such as a short sleeve v-neck cap sleeve top and a matching white skort, both with metallic gold piping. Fila also designed a matching accessory collection, which includes an white quilted duffle with piping and handle as well as metallic gold wristbands and visor. All items in the collection have a metallic gold F-box Fila logo detail.
The limited edition collection will be available at select specialty tennis retail stores around the country and on fila.com.
