Somebody fetch the strawberries and I’ll get cream because it’s that time of year again folks, get ready for tennis fever to grip the nation when Wimbledon kicks off next week.
What better way to get everyone in the mood than a chance to meet reigning world number one, Novak Djokovic, who will be at the Uniqlo’s London flagship store tomorrow to officially unveil their 2013 Wimbledon match wear collection.
Exclusive to the UK, the limited edition range is modelled on Djokovic’s upcoming Wimbledon tournament kit. It features socks (starting at £7.90), polo shirts (£19.90) and a track jacket (£49.90). Also available are tennis essentials like wristbands, shorts and joggers.
The accomplished athlete, who has been a Uniqlo Global Brand Ambassador since 2012 and will wear the kit on court, had this to say about the range, which he helped develop:
“The match wear is not only really comfortable but also highly-functional. It is stretchy and quickly absorbs perspiration so that I can focus on my game.”
Will you be heading down? Novak will be in store on Tuesday 18th June from 7pm, Uniqlo, 311 Oxford Street, London W1C 2HP.
