STYLE & DOMINANCE: Australian Open Then and Now

Roger, Vika and Rafa may have gone down Down Under, but their style and that of players that came before them have always started off the year with a statement.  Before the dawn of the Open Era (1968) where players like Margaret Court (11 titles), Roy Emerson (7) and Jack Crawford (4) collected titles like baseball cards, the uniform of the day was all white, dignified, conformist, and well, boring.  Then came the splashy art canvases of the 80's and early 90's with spread eagle motifs, paint spatter and day-glo made most famous by Andre Agassi (4).  The late 90's and the dominance of Pete Sampras (2 Australian Titles) on the Men's tour returned the aesthetic to a quieter more subdued style.  In the early 2000's, new materials like Nike's dri-fit™ ushered in a new generation of design freedom, lighter weight and moisture management for everyone from top tour players to public park players looking to emulate their heroes.


ISSEY MIYAKE WOMAN SS2015 | AFLOAT LINE

Issey Miyake has created a new deconstructed women's line for spring/summer.  The pieces combine traditional proportions and patterns while using a subdued palate that is laced with cutting edge production technology, textures and construction techniques.  Accessories such as the large bag and clutch have a near comic book-like color blocking style that really stands on its own.
