Uniqlo has just announced that it will begin pre-order sales of replica gamewear worn by its newly-minted ambassador, Roger Federer, at the 2018 Wimbledon Championships. The set is comprised of five items: a shirt, shorts, a headband, wristband, and socks. Pre-orders will be accepted at Uniqlo's Japan online store starting July 23.
The set is made with Dry Ex, Uniqlo's athletic fabric technology, and was designed in their Paris R&D center, led by Christophe Lemaire. Instead of the classic polo collar or crewneck, Uniqlo went by Federer’s preference of a short stand-up collar, which makes for a more sophisticated look both on and off court. A noticeable design element is the choice of burgundy for the accents, rather than the bright red that we're used to.
If you're a Federer fan and are just coming to grips with his departure from Nike, getting your hands on this collectible is a pretty good way to start. The set goes for ¥13,500 (approximately PHP6,400), and international delivery for pre-orders is scheduled for late September to early October.
