Tennis is one of the most stylish sports in the world, there’s no denying it. And it has had a massive cultural impact in many countries. One of them is Turkey, the birth country of Les Benjamins, which embraced it already in the 1800s when the British Levantines relocated to Istanbul’s Tarabya neighbourhood and founded the Challenge Cup tournament – during the Ottoman era, it became the region’s very own Wimbledon.
Now, taking inspiration from Turkey’s long-standing relationship with the sport, Les Benjamins are releasing a classy and luxurious yet fashion-forward collection. As mentioned before, the brand is focusing on timeless pieces that combine classic court styles with new designs and materials, like tech and breathable fabrics, jersey, stripes, tracksuits, and the brand’s signature bold prints reading ‘Les Benjamins Sports Club’ (on t-shirts, polos, bomber jackets, etc.). Reminiscent of manicured lawns and hardcourts, the collection plays with black, white, racing green, and tan on a number of pieces ranging from dresses to skirts, to shorts, t-shirts, and even a functional sports bra.
