You can take a superhero's suit off, but you can never take away his super powers.
We only had to see what clothing Serena would look in her first game after the controversy. It was Monday, in the first round of the US Open... and left no one indifferent.
We talked to you a few days ago about the designs of Virgil Abloh, creative director of Louis Vuitton and responsible for Off-White, who has collaborated with Nike to create the new tutu-style costumes with which Serena will play her tournaments. The black color was chosen for the first day and both the tennis player and the designer have attested to it in their Instagram accounts.
