Magnum X Vuarnet

 

 
He’s baaack… Magnum, P.I. that is, but not Tom Selleck. Magnum, P.I. premieres this Monday, Sept. 24 at 9pm on CBS with a new cast in a remake of the popular 80’s TV series that brought Tom Selleck and his macho mustache into our homes every week. Also back are his sunglasses. Vuarnet has relaunched the TOM, the aviator style sunglasses Tom Selleck made famous as Thomas Magnum.

Available in 6 different colors, these mens’s sunglasses feature Vuarnet’s exclusive 100% mineral glass lenses. With lateral reinforcement cut into the front of the frame and their detachable cord, the TOM integrates the performance attributes of Vuarnet’s sport heritage into a stylish frame that’s tough enough for any Navy Seal turned private investigator like Magnum P.I.

The TOM is priced at $330 and is available online at Vuarnet.com

2018 US Open Women’s Final: One Not Soon Forgotten

 

NAOMI OSAKA & SERENA WILLIAMS POST-MATCH,

US OPEN WOMEN’S FINAL

 
I rarely write those front-page sport stories that everyone covers, because I don’t know what else to add that hasn’t been said. It’s been 24 hours since Naomi Osaka beat Serena Williams in the Women’s Final at the 2018 US Open however, and I’m still reeling with conflicting emotions about the match. This is much more than a sport story. The victory of a first-time Grand Slam finalist against the best women’s player of all time should have been a celebration. Osaka won in straight sets, 6-2, 6-4, but the events that occurred in the second set leading to that final score are ones we will be talking about for many tennis championships to come.

Tennis is a game of momentum. You watch it shift back and forth like the ball across the net. A first set win in a Grand Slam final by a first-time finalist like Naomi Osaka, often precedes a second set loss, and a 3-set win for a veteran like Serena Williams. In her 23 Grand Slam victories, she’s done it many times before. Most young players falter under the pressure in such a big match. Osaka did not. But Williams did. She lost it — and I’m not talking about the match. She lost IT in an on-court meltdown that was not unwarranted, but was unsportsmanlike.

The 12 Most Memorable Moments in Tennis Style

 

SERENA WILLIAMS VIRGIL ABLOH X NIKE

From Roger Federer leaving Nike for a $300 million contract with Uniqlo, to the Palace Skateboard mash-up with Adidas at Wimbledon, to Virgil Abloh’s collaboration with Serena Williams for Nike on her upcoming US Open return… it has been a very fashionable summer for tennis! The tennis courts have become the hot spot for fashion x sport collections and the players the perfect models to show it off in action.

Tennis has always been one of the most fashionable sports. Going back to the 1920’s, Susan Lenglen brought flapper style to the courts. Then there was Gussie Moran in the 1950’s scandelously flaunting white lace knickers at Wimbledon. Designer Ted Tingling was responsible for that fashion moment and made his mark on the game again in the 1970’s as the official designer of the Virginia Slims Womens tour. Later of course, there were players like Bjorn Borg, John McEnroe, and Andre Agassi whose tennis looks for Fila, Tacchini and Nike made them tennis style icons.

With the US Open about to kick off in the fashion capital of NYC, we pay homage to the style of the game with a review of the all time greatest looks in tennis history…
 

1. SUZANNE LENGLEN 1926

1920’s tennis star Suzanne Lenglen was a 34-time major champion and in 1921 the world’s number 1 player. Her dazzling style of play was matched her style of dress on the courts. An International Tennis Hall of Fame member, her bio reads: “The Frenchwoman filled the stands with her flamboyant brilliance on court and her eccentric personality that blurred the lines between superstar athlete and diva.”
