Fila Commemorates Clijsters Retirement With Collection

Fila has announced a special apparel and accessory collection to honor the upcoming retirement of Kim Clijsters.

“We have been honored to have Kim as a member of our Fila family for so many years. 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 she 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,” said Gene Yoon, Chairman of Fila Korea.

The collection includes a short sleeve v-neck cap sleeve top, a white jacket and pant, a white quilted duffle bag and more, all with gold accenting.

“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 and on fila.com.
