WIN FOR FILA: Fila certainly got its money’s worth from its tennis star, U.S. Open champ Kim Clijsters. The 26-year-old Belgian tennis player, who came out of retirement a month ago, has been wearing Fila tennis outfits in tournaments for years.
“It’s a win for Kim and also a win for working moms,” said a Fila spokeswoman. Clijsters, who wore Fila’s iconic red, white and navy sleeved top and matching skirt from the fall 2009 women’s Heritage collection, and has a preference for sleeved models over tanks and racer backs, already has met with Fila’s apparel team to talk about styles for next spring.
For the title, Clijsters defeated Danish player Caroline Wozniacki, 7-5, 6-3. Wozniacki was dressed in an Adidas by Stella McCartney dusty mauve dress with a multitiered skirt. “We’re bringing that [Stella] collection in for spring,” said Dana Mason, buyer for Mason’s Tennis Mart in Manhattan.
