Three Wimbledon Style Icons

Posted On 01 July 2015

Wimbledon starts this week so allow us to present you with our favourite three tennis style icons. 

Lea Pericoli and her Tinling rose-trimmed dress

Pericoli often collaborated with Teddy Tinling, a sought after designer who revolutionized female tennis apparel in the 50s and 60s. She's pictured here with her famous Tinling rose-trimmed dress.


Rafael Nadal and his pirate pants and vest combo

Rafa was a star as soon as he hit the tour. Both in the tennis stakes, winning the French Open at barely 19 years old, and in the style stakes, as the below ensemble shows.


Roger Federer and his blazer

It was a toss-up between the blazer and the cardigan. We went with the blazer. Best described as divisive, R-Fed's own line of clothing has further defined his slick on-court image.


Dunlop Sports 07 - Black - £35* 

*Subject to availability.

If you're planning to spend some time on court this summer, why not check out and our range of Dunlop Sports sunglasses. Wrap-around shades that are designed to protect your eyes from harmful sunlight both at the the sides and the top of the lenses. So, helpful for service games when the sun's overhead. Now all you have to do is work on that backhand.
