While it may be winter in these parts, it’s peak summertime in the Southern Hemisphere. And in Melbourne, the Australian Open is currently underway, and the world’s top tennis players are competing for a Grand Slam title. Timing-wise, it’s fitting that the Sydney-based activewear and yoga brand The Upside
recently dropped its first-ever, limited-edition tennis collection — and it’s unlike any other tenniscore apparel
we’ve ever come across. The stuff we’re seeing blurs (and crosses!) the tennis court lines straight into streetwear. A sampling of looks: a crochet mini dress
reminiscent of yester-decades, a crisp white poplin mini dress
with a princess flare skirt, a matching terry-towel tracksuit
that a member of The Sopranos
would proudly don. To put it into tennis terms, this capsule is an ace.
