The 'Queen' Strikes again !
A Wardrobe Fit For A Queen
... The Queen Collection ...
As an Inspiration to all, and the Forbes List highest paid athlete for four years in a row, Serena Williams is nothing short of a QUEEN both on and off of the tennis courts. As she continues to defend her reigning champion title in the 2018 U.S Open, Serena has broken the internet with her on and off the court sense in fashion. For the past 14 years, Serena has partnered with the well-known brand “Nike” to bring us countless numbers of trending athletic wear that celebrates and inspires young athletes to get active! It came with great surprise that this year the celebrity athlete joined forces with Nike to Collaborate with Louis Vuitton's very own Fashion Director Virgil Abloh to help make her comeback line, an epic one. The collection is entitled the “Queen” collection that defines her legendary accomplishments and influence to those who aspire to follow in her successes.
The collection features TuTu styled dresses, 3 Pairs of ultralight colored Nike kicks, a bag, and a bomber jacket. Although most items are available to the public, some of the pieces of the collection will be New York City exclusives.
With NYC being Serena’s stomping ground, she decided to take to Queens, NYC on August 20th, 2019 to premiere the launch alongside Virgil Abloh at the WestSideCountryClub. The event was closed off to a small number of successful neighboring teen-athletes who got a chance to listen to a few inspiring words of encouragement from the Queen herself in an interview with MET’s Social Media Manager, Kimberly Drew.
