VENUS WILLIAMS DESIGNS ELEVEN COLLECTION FOR 2012 OLYMPICS
Venus Williams is known for her controversial on-court fashion choices, always working to raise the style stakes of the game. While Olympic tennis returns to Wimbledon for the upcoming London Games, the all-white dress code has been scrapped. The new rule provides players like Williams an opportunity to add some patriotic flair to their Olympic fashions. In celebration of the London Games, the tennis player is releasing a limited-edition collection of gear inspired by her own 2012 Olympic fashions. The new styles will be part of her EleVen label.
“I hope it will help me channel my favorite superhero and manifest another gold medal,” said Williams.
Venus cited Wonder Woman as her style inspiration which is evident in the red, white, navy and gold color scheme. The special collection includes a dress with a navy bodice, black and white piping and intricate red back straps. A touch of gold was added via the EleVen logo. A skirt and top with a similar colorway and design will also be offered. The line will be available exclusively at elevenbyvenus.com.
