Virgil Abloh Dressing Serena Williams for the 50th U.S. Open Is Black As Hell and We’re Here for It.
Newly crowned Louis Vuitton designer/former Yeezy creative director Virgil Abloh has designed a tennis dress for Serena Williams. She’ll wear it during this year’s U.S. Open. We’re not crying. You’re crying.
“What I love about tennis is the gracefulness. It’s an aggressive and powerful game, but it takes touch and finesse,” Abloh said in a statement to Vanity Fair. “So the dress is feminine, but combines her aggression. It’s partially revealing. It’s asymmetrical. It has a sort of ballerina-esque silhouette to symbolize her grace. It’s not about bells and whistles and tricks. It’s just about it living on the body, and expressing Serena’s spirit with each swing of the racket.”
