FILA and Wood Wood spotlight the timelessness of triumph and a genuine appreciation of sports in their new collaborative effort.
FILA has commissioned Danish lifestyle brand Wood Wood to fuse their unique fashion sensibility with FILA’s heritage in tennis and court style. With this latest collection, titled ‘FILA by Wood Wood’, the two brands have come together to create pieces that reference 70s greatness whilst employing panel blocking and a colour palette of brown, orange, and off-white hues, meant to express the movement of the sport
The collection includes clothes for recreation and on-court action, along with leather constructed tennis shoes and headgear for both ends of the season. In the subtle shape of a stand-out dress, knitted pleats assert texture and contrast to the rough surface, on which the game of tennis unfolds. Breathable cotton, brushed fleece and merino wool make up the textiles of the various designs. The result is a collection with a firm foundation in classic tennis styles as well as modern day streetwear.
