The Wimbledon Collaboration

In its 11th year of collaboration with Wimbledon, Ralph Lauren has redesigned the staff wardrobe which will be on show from June 27 to July 10. The new collection aims to combine the tradition of prestige, elegance and love of the game with more modern fabrics and fits.

While competitors will still be restricted to white dress only, all court officials from ball boys and girls to line umpires will get to don the new uniform at the world’s most prestigious tennis event. Ball persons will be dressed in navy shorts and skorts made with more modern fabrics. In a change from 2011, ball persons will also wear classic style polo shirts, simplifying the previous design featuring a green and purple sash. With timeless white trousers and updated pinstripe navy blazers, however, umpires will be looking the sharpest of all.
