“What I love about tennis is the gracefulness. It’s an aggressive and powerful game, but it takes touch and finesse,” Abloh shared in an official press statement. “So the dress is feminine, but combines her aggression. It’s partially revealing. It’s asymmetrical. It has a sort of ballerina-esque silhouette to symbolize her grace. It’s not about bells and whistles and tricks. It’s just about it living on the body, and expressing Serena’s spirit with each swing of the racket.”

The Nike x Virgil Abloh Queen Collection will range in price from $130 to $900. You’ll be able to shop the looks online on Nike.com, plus a at select Nike stores at NikeLab retailers.
