UNIQLO and Global Brand Ambassador Roger Federer have joined together to launch an all-new collection of Game Wear polo shirts. Federer’s iconic “RF” cap will also be available in colors matching the game wear.
French design authority Christophe Lemaire led the process of creating the new Game Wear collection at the Paris R&D Center. It was originally designed in consultation with Federer for the 2021 Qatar ExxonMobile Open that begins on March 8th. This will be Federer’s first tournament after returning to the ATP tour.
The shirts feature a stylish color and design of a dark green base with color graduation around the color and bright green accents on the lower sleeve. The products are made with quick drying DRY-EX material. One of the key sustainability initiatives of UNIQLO is the development of DRY-EX products, which are made of polyester fibers recycled from PET bottles.
According to a press release, “Working with the UNIQLO design team, we were able to continue to innovate the design and functionality of my 2021 outfits,” Roger commented on the new collection, “After being away from competitive tennis for over a year, I look forward to being able to wear these new items very soon and am very excited to make my return to the sport I love.”
