The new mom is set to reclaim her throne at the U.S. Open at the end of this month, and will be doing so in major style.
The collaboration came about when Virgil met with the Nike Performance team to discuss a performance dress for Serena’s upcoming games. From there on, Virgil created a collection with some of his top-selling sneaker styles such as the 10: Air Max 97 SW and the 10: Nike Blazer Mid SW. They will come in special colorways with color gradients on the mid-soles and a new volt zip-tie.
When asked about the collection, Virgil said, "With Serena, we have one of our generation's most powerful, inspiring athletes as the muse. "I was trying to embody her spirit and bring something compelling and fresh to tennis."
The “Queen” collection is based on Serena's love of ballet and will feature a special PE edition of her Nike Court Flare sneakers along with a newly designed tennis dress.
The pieces will be available for purchase at select Nike locations. Prices for all items have yet to be released, but the Serena dress retails for $500, the jacket is $900 and the SW Air Max 97’s are $190.

Serena is literally the GOAT, so we are super excited for this historical moment.
Will you be in line to cop something from the collection?
