Wilson's 2013 Apparel
CHICAGO — Building upon the steady success of its apparel line for men and women, Wilson Racquet Sports is introducing a larger 2013 line featuring proprietary technologies, enhanced fit and bolder colors. Four collections reflecting the style, climate conditions and performance requirements of the Grand Slams will be introduced to coincide with the Australian Open, French Open, Wimbledon and US Open. Wilson’s expanding group of apparel ambassadors includes tour players Anne Keothavong, Philipp Kohlschreiber, Feliciano Lopez, Paul Henri Mathieu, Melanie Oudin, Barbora Zahlavova Strycova and Horia Tecau.
Exclusive technologies include: Tri-Color Burn Out, customized cooling features in the fabric; Liquid Stretch for intuitive fabric movement, increased comfort and breathability; nanoTECH™ providing supreme moisture management (nanoWIK), antimicrobial protection (nanoBAN) and sun protection (nanoUV); and Laser Technology, eliminating seams in high stress areas resulting in a lightweight garment with laser-zoned ventilation.
“This line provides solutions for the quickly evolving game of tennis,” said Kristi Boggs, business manager for footwear and apparel at Wilson Racquet Sports. “We paid great attention to functionality, breathability and fit. Designed for tour players competing in a wide variety of climates, as well as tennis enthusiasts looking to elevate their game, this line addresses virtually every skill set. Our commitment to design is not only evident in our rackets, but also, in our apparel and footwear. We are the only tennis brand providing fully integrated premium products for players head to toe.”
Men and Women’s Spring Collection: Australian Open
The Men’s Collection features an advanced geo-grid pattern with Tri-Color Burn Out construction, zoned cool mesh for breathability and ultra lightweight coverage in high sweat areas. The Pure Battle Crew and Short lead the line. The Women’s line uses the same Two-Color Burn Out design construction in modern, fresh colors. The Guts n Glamour Tank and matching Skirt are contemporary, featuring cyan and modern jade.
Men and Women’s Summer Collection: French Open
These collections feature lightweight, technical fabrics with bold color pops that are ideal for summer heat. The men’s line features fully embossed ultra-light jersey materials and zoned cool mesh. The Well Equipped Crew and Short will be a favorite. The women’s collection provides an enhanced level of comfort and features Liquid Stretch fabric with Tri-Color Burn Out. The Up A Set Tank and matching skirt are the star pieces in this collection.
Men and Women’s Late Summer Collection: Wimbledon
Debuting at Wimbledon, the Men and Women’s Late Summer collections are a nod to the class and grandeur of the Wimbledon Grand Slam, and to Wilson’s heritage. Hues of whites, inks and blues can be seen alongside herringbone embossed patterns (in men’s) and body mapped design detailing for women.
