Anyone for tennis? Luxe sportswear brand Millie Fox's first tennis collection. Monday 25 June 2007 PDF Print The tennis season is well underway and with the sun shining and Wimbledon starting today, many of us are yearning to get on the courts once more. Up until now there’s been a real problem for tennis loving fashionistas as much tennis-wear can leave you courting disaster with its shiny fabrics, unflattering clingy cuts, hugely visible branding and garish colours. However, the girls at luxe sportswear brand Millie Fox have come to the rescue with their first tennis collection. The range is designed in a muted tonal palette of lavender, apple and cream and even better is cut to fit not to cling, (and there’s not a shiny fabric in sight). The tennis collection consists of eight pieces ranging from cute dresses and skirts through to tennis tops and undershorts. Not only do these clothes look and feel gorgeous, they also perform to the max as they’re made using the latest high-performance sporting fabrics. Tennis Dresses - RRP £80 Halterneck Tennis Dress – A sexy halterneck tennis dress with built-in bra (so the balls are the only thing bouncing on the court). Under the bust is contrasting empire line piping. Ribbon-Tie Tennis Dress – A v-necked tennis dress, again with built-in bra. The deep ‘v’ is edged with contrasting piping with a cute tie at the base of the ‘v’. (Left) Wrap Tennis Dress – A 1970s inspired wrap tennis dress with contrasting piping. The dresses are made in jersey Meryl fabric, a high-performance sporting fabric which is completely breathable. Available in apple, cream and lavender. (We’ve been told that the dresses are also being bought by non-tennis players to wear as beach cover ups). Skirts - Available in lavender, apple and cream - RRP £43 Pleated Tennis Skirt – A retro-styled tennis skirt, similar to the one you wore at school but this one is flattering! Simple Tennis Skirt – A simple tennis skirt with contrasting piping at the hem. Tennis Undershorts - RRP £35 To co-ordinate with the dresses and skirts are cute under-shorts with two semi-circular reversed pockets with contrasting trim - perfect to store your tennis balls. (available in lavender, apple and cream) Tennis Tops - Available in lavender, apple and cream V-neck Tennis Top – An elegant v-neck tennis top with contrasting trim. - RRP £43 Square Neck Tennis Top – A flattering square-necked tennis top with contrasting trim. - RRP £50 In addition there’s a range of divinely cut fleece tops which perfectly co-ordinate with the tennis range. (Prices range from £70-90) Range specifications and colourways – All the items are available in apple, cream, and lavender. The tennis collection is made using a jersey Meryl micro-fabric with 24% elastane. The micro-fibre is both quick dry and breathable and its high elastane content means it gives both support and stretch; it also keeps its shape and is creaseless. The range is available in sizes 8-16 (UK sizes). Stockists and availability Millie Fox is available nationwide and stockists include Harrods, Gleneagles, and The Queen’s Club. For stockists contact 0207 581 5369 or visit www.milliefox.com About Millie Fox Millie Fox was created by childhood friends Amanda Gallagher and Luci Douglas-Pennant following a tennis and golf holiday where they could find nothing flattering or elegant to wear. They saw no reason for being active to mean being unstylish; so, they set about designing a capsule luxury sport and active wear collection. Retailers were keen to fill this gap in the market and the first collection was stocked by Harrods, Gleneagles and a host of other boutiques and high-end sportswear retailers. -ENDS- For photography, samples or more information please contact: Joanna Wilmot – 0208 996 1801/ 07967 195213/ firstname.lastname@example.org Omar Jamil – 0208 996 1800/ 07774 900299/ email@example.com This press release was distributed by ResponseSource Press Release Wire on behalf of Velvet Integrated PR in the following categories: Leisure & Hobbies, Women's Interest & Beauty, Sport, Retail & Fashion, for more information visit http://pressreleasewire.responsesource.com/about.
