It’s A Match

standard_8700130705It’s early September, which for New Yorkers always means US Open time—when we head out to Arthur Ashe Stadium in Queens, take in a few matches with our favorites (Djokovic, Murray, Ferrer…Williams, Azarenka, Kvitova), then head back home to dust off our racquets and revive dreams of grand-slam titles and would-be glory.

And who better to help us look our best and get our game on than master designer Ralph Lauren? This season, for the ninth consecutive year, Ralph Lauren has returned to the court to outfit all on-court officials—including chair umpires, line umpires, and ballpersons—while offering the rest of us a chance to dress the part, too.

The Ralph Lauren US Open collection represents the brand’s classic American style reinvented with a modern, sporty edge. Performance-driven with a patriotic sensibility, the uniforms are fashioned from airflow jersey and breathable moisture-wicking knits and feature a timeless color palette of red, white, and navy. The ballperson polo shirt has been refined to feature iconic Ralph Lauren sportswear details: the Big Pony logo in white against French navy, a contrasting red collar, slimming color-blocking, and a contemporary fit. The official uniforms, which include polo shirts, dresses, shorts, and skirts, are all designed for full athletic movement while incorporating these quintessential Ralph Lauren design elements.

For stylish tennis fans and players, the expanded US Open collection includes polo shirts and T-shirts with the signature polo player against a variety of modern and classic tennis colors, including preppy green, Marbella blue, French navy, pure white, heritage pink, signal orange, and RL 200 red—a testament to Ralph Lauren’s dedication to the Open.

The store also features a wide selection of items such as tote bags, tennis dresses, skirts, sweaters, commemorative caps, and classic polo shirts for men and women. If you don’t have courtside seats, the collection is also available at select Ralph Lauren stores, select department stores, and online at ralphlauren.com.
