New Fila Products & Classic Borg Style At 80s Casual Classics
We’ve just taken delivery of some fresh Fila BB1 colourways, new Fila styles rich in tennis nostalgia and classic 80s casual style.
From its humble Italian beginnings in Biella back in 1911, it wasn’t really until Fila graced the tennis world and centre court that it transformed into one of the worlds most celebrated Italian sportswear labels. From the original White Line Collection of the 1970s, Fila looked to merge the lines between fashion and function, putting out contemporary sportswear designs with a timeless Italian edge. It just looked the business with tennis elite like Adriano Panatta, Paolo Bertolucci and of course Björn Borg flying the Fila flag throughout the 70s and 80s. The colourful casual era saw the introduction of new styles like the Fila BB1 that are now considered all time classics, the original 80s sportswear look and the birth of a tennis legend. Borg’s association with the Italian sportswear label wasn’t about just winning on court, it was about a new wave of casual style, his air of coolness and superiority that would go down in tennis sporting history. As other sportswear endorsements have come and gone over the years, the Borg x Fila connection will always be remembered as one of the greatest of all time playing a vital role in the birth of the casual movement in the UK.
