Serena Williams Will Debut Virgil Abloh x Nike at the U.S. Open
BY MELISSA DIAZ
The collab we all didn't know we needed has finally arrived -- on August 13th, 2018 Virgil Abloh debuted "The Queen Collection," a capsule for the one and only Serena Williams.
On the official Off-White Instagram page, it states the capsule is "a study in the intersection of sport and lifestyle but ultimately performance."
Abloh has collaborated with Nike before but never alongside an athlete. It doesn't come as a surprise that Williams, who is known for her style on the court, has created The Queen collection with Abloh. In his email to Vogue, he states:
The Queen Collection consists of black and white leotards with tulle skirts inspired by Williams' love for dance. Abloh created each piece to complement and showcase Williams' body and performance on the court. The outfits are styled with a black bomber jacket paired with Abloh's version of Williams' NikeCourt Flare 2 sneakers.
A limited edition of The Queen Collection including two Nike The Ten sneakers will be available at Nike Labs and Nike Soho after August 27th when the 50th U.S. Open begins.
