A couple of days ago, news broke that the French Tennis Federation banned Serena Williams’ Catsuit from the French Open.
Well, Serena responds with a custom Off-White x Nike tutu, designed by Louis Vuitton artistic director Virgil Abloh.
According to Elle, the “single-sleeved dress created a one-shoulder effect with brown paneling and featured a full tulle skirt, a look she finished with a pair of compressing fishnet tights and a blush Nike t-shirt during her warm up.”
Williams told reporters during her US Open post-match press conference that she’d been wanting to wear a tutu for some time, describing the look as “easy to play in.”
“[It’s] kind of aerodynamic with the one arm free. It feels really good,” she told reporters. “Yeah, the tutu is easy to play in because I practiced in it before. That was fun.”
