While her little sis Serena is sponsored by sports fashion giant Nike, Venus Williams likes to be in absolute charge of her on-court looks and in recent months we’ve seen nothing but hits from the tennis star who successfully juggles her designer career in her brand Eleven by Venus. The American’s most recent Ola collection competed neck and neck with far more experienced tennis apparel companies and I am pleased to see that the new Ndebele collection, to be launched at the upcoming Miami Open, will definitely further strengthen EleVen’s position in the world of tennis fashion.
When I think of EleVen, I first think of prints, and after all sorts of abstracts, tie-dyes, geometric shapes and flowers that the brand’s ambassadors have worn over the years, this colorful zig-zag is my favorite. The dark color-block panel on the sides of the dress perfectly break the geometric pattern and add a slimming effect. Plus, I love the simplicity of the cut – there are no busy elements, such as the very popular ruffles, allowing the print to do all the talking.
The EleVen Ndebele Print Miami Dress is available at retail, as well as this lovely EleVen Ndebele Ready To Play Tank. As you know, I like this trend of keeping things simple in the front and then having a surprising effect in the back. This tank has executed that wonderfully – with a triangle back cutout and a nice fold. Are you as excited about this new collection as I am?
