Prices for all items have yet to be released, but the Serena dress retails for $500, the jacket is $900 and the SW Air Max 97's are $190.

As founder of Off-White, new artistic director of Louis Vuitton menswear and a DJ, the multitalented Abloh counts A-listers like Kanye West, Kendall Jenner and Bella Hadid as fans with his inherently cool and of-the-moment creations, including his now iconic quotation graphics. 'What I love about tennis is the gracefulness.

Williams told the publication that wearing the dress invoked feelings of strength combined with femininity. "I was trying to embody her spirit and bring something compelling and fresh to tennis". One inspiration? The tennis champion's love of dance and ballet.

New Haven police make arrest after dozens of overdoses
Police have arrested three people suspected of being responsible for an overdose outbreak at a New Haven, Connecticut park. K2, also known as "spice", is frequently laced with other drugs and can result in seizures, psychosis, and even death.

The 23-time Grand Slam champion reached the final of the 2018 Wimbledon Championships not long after a almost 14-month break from the tennis.

So it seems apt that Nike enlisted streetwear designer Virgil Abloh to create a new line for Serena Williams to wear at the tournament, which takes place in New York City later this month. Who can forget the denim skirt she wore on the 2005 US Open, or the leopard-print dress from 2014? It's partially revealing. It's asymmetrical. "I felt so feminine in the tutu, which is probably my favorite part of it". Virgil describes it as a pice that "has sort of a ballerina-esque silhouette to symbolize her grace". "It's just about it living on the body and expressing Serena's spirit with each swing of the racket", Virgil explained. It embodies exactly what I always say: you can be strong and handsome.

Abloh said his process included revisiting Williams's iconic on-court looks over the years-her 2002 U.S. Open catsuit and her 2018 French Open look come to mind-and honing in on the design elements and signatures that she enjoys most. After teasing the line early Monday morning (Aug. 13), the Off-White designer has officially unveiled his work for the Nike "QUEEN" collection.
