Harold: From Venus Williams’ Heart to Treasured Tennis Court Clothing Collection
Maturing in your tennis game means being able to focus and find peace in those quiet “zone” moments before the ball crosses the net. Venus Williams has been outspoken about the benefits of yoga for tennis players, so for those who love the mindfulness of yoga, we present to you the Hari Collection from EleVen by Venus. In Hindu tradition, Hari , the supreme being. is often depicted holding a lotus flower, but this season’s inspiration comes from Venus’ four-legged love, her Havanese pup Harold. Just imagine him running across drafts and sketches in the EleVen studios! The print abstractly resembles busy puppy paws and fashionably incorporates black, frost gray, white, and sharp green “free-spirited” patterns. Let’s check out those gorgeous print pieces!
