It's nearly time for Wimbledon and it is the home of the grass courts and tennis whites.
Oh and strawberries of course. Now when I think of Wimbledon I feel all 1930s and Ralph Lauren. Good old RL appropriated the sportswear of the bourgeoisie of middle England and made it his own. It was a faux vision probably of the Surrey courts aided by a whimsical Chanel, Wallis Simpson and Nancy Mitford, maybe RL even picked up a Richmal Compton's Just William.
Why Mr Lauren has even produced some tennis wallpaper .
As well as designing the costume for the umpire and ball boys/girls, Ralph attires Roger Federer who dons the epitome of good tennis taste for Wimbledon channelling Fred Perry a veritable 1930s tennis star all in long whites.
Given the excuse to dress up in all white I would stay British despite Mr Lauren's wonderful hard work and look to arrive in a Vivienne number. I spotted this little beauty on my-wardrobe.com
