Serena Williams Will Play at Wimbledon with a Sparkly New Swarovski x Nike Brooch
With Wimbledon kicking off next Monday, Nike has revealed a sneak peek of Serena Williams‘ outfit featuring a sparkly brooch created in collaboration with Swarovski. The tennis star will be wearing a sweater-knit, textured white dress along with a Swoosh brooch adorned with 34 crystals, symbolizing the age at which Williams won her most recent London Grand Slam in 2016.
Abby Swancutt, Global Design Director for NikeCourt, took inspiration from past generations for this sparkly new accessory dubbed the “Broosh.” “I also wanted her to feel like it was something her grandmother could have worn, but of course give it a modern spin and make it just right for Serena.”
Williams, who will be aiming for her 24th Grand Slam title this year, hasn’t played since her third round defeat at the French Open last month where she wore a graphic Off-White™ cape designed by Virgil Abloh. Stay tuned for updates as the Wimbledon season begins.
