Game, Set and Match.
Since 2006 Ralph Lauren have been Wimbledon’s official outfitters, tasked with creating collections of fresh uniforms for the staff as well as enticing, trendsetting eyewear. Wimbledon 2018 will mark the 11th year Ralph Lauren has collaborated with Wimbledon and the brand new staff uniform will officially be on show from June 27th to July 10th. This year’s collection sets out to combine modern fabrics and shapes with the age-old tradition of prestige, sophistication and, of course, a love for tennis.
This year all court officials including ball boys, ball girls and umpires will be dressed in head to toe by Ralph Lauren. In a break away from tradition, Wimbledon will now see ball persons sporting classic style Ralph Lauren polo’s and navy shorts and skorts – this will replace the previous design that featured the green and purple sash. In contrast to the ball persons, all official umpires will wear smartly cut, wide pinstripe navy blazers and classically clean-cut and simple accompanying white trousers. In doing this, Ralph Lauren has ingeniously combined the world of sportswear with sharp, old-school tailoring, drawing inspiration from quintessentially British, country club aesthetics.

These unisex sunglasses will feature a classic shape, Ralph Laurens iconic purple Polo pony logo as well as dark green undertones. A Wimbledon by Polo inscription is heat-printed inside the temples. The sunglasses will come in a vintage-inspired brown leather case that sports the official Championship logo.
