Fila announced the debut of a special apparel and accessory collection to honor the retiring Kim Clijsters as she plays the last Grand Slam events of her career. Kim will premiere the first offerings in this limited edition collection when she plays her first match on Centre Court at The Championships at Wimbledon.

“We have been honored to have Kim as a member of our Fila family for so many years,” said Gene Yoon, Chairman of Fila Korea. “She has been an amazing ambassador for the brand, and like many of her fans, we are sad to see her retire from tennis. The collection that Kim will debut at Wimbledon echoes the champion that she is, and we hope she enjoys every moment of the last Grand Slam appearances of her illustrious tennis career.”

The collection for Wimbledon consists of a selection of Kim’s favorite Fila tennis silhouettes. Clijsters will wear a short sleeve v-neck cap sleeve top with breathable air mesh side panels or sleeveless top. The v-neck has metallic gold trim at the neck and piping on the front side panels while the sleeveless features the trim on the arm --- vertically on the side panels as well as two color blocked lines on the hip. Both styles are classic Fila silhouettes and will be paired with a matching white skort with subtle metallic gold piping across the hip.

Clijsters will also wear a white jacket and pant with her on-court look. The full zip white Poly spandex French terry jacket has metallic gold taping along the collar and continues down the front of the jacket to the hem. Side slash pockets and sleeves have metallic gold taping. The matching pant has metallic gold taping down the side of the leg and includes a zip at the ankle.

To complement the on-court look, Fila designed a matching accessory collection, which includes an elegant white quilted duffle with piping and handle as well as white and metallic gold wristbands and visor. All items in the collection have a metallic gold F-box Fila logo detail.

“It means so much to me that Fila developed this commemorative collection in honor of my retirement,” said Kim Clijsters. “Wimbledon has been an important place for me since I was very young, and it was where I played my first exhibition before I officially returned to tennis in 2009. It is only fitting that I debut this collection on Centre Court.”

The limited edition collection will be available at select specialty tennis retail stores around the country.
