Do you know who really loves Wimbledon, the oldest and most prestigious tennis tournament that takes place annually outside of London? Anna Wintour, that's who. But it quickly becomes apparent that her love for the courts is shared by Hermès, who've dedicated the windows of their Madison Avenue shop to all of their tennis accessories, big and small.
Can you fathom strutting out for your court time, with a leather tennis ball bag by Hermès, costing hundreds of dollars? Or perhaps sweating into a 4-digit tennis dress? For some, this is the only way to play.
Wimbledon begins this week and lasts through July 4, days sure to be filled with Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal jumping around, and some more questionable outfit choices from Venus Williams.
