We love summer: long holidays at the beach, in the mountains or in the country, short city breaks. Though this summer is rather an unusual one, we are shining the spotlight on eight key items from the La Griffe Roland-Garros 2020 collection! Whether you are exploring Paris in the scorching sunshine or strolling along the coast, here is our selection of sublime summer items that are sure to become firm favourites in your holiday wardrobe.
8 Roland-Garros must-haves this summer
The 8 Roland-Garros must-haves that are set to make waves all summer long.
1 - Delsey Paris x Roland-Garros suitcase
If you are heading to France over the summer, take this elegant and stylish suitcase with you! A journey can make or break a holiday, so it’s important that your luggage withstands the trip. The Châtelet Air Delsey trolley suitcase has been released in a limited edition version especially for the 2020 Roland-Garros tournament. This iconic suitcase gives a sporty touch to your trips and keeps your clothes in pristine condition thanks to its clever storage compartments and scratch-resistant surface. Though travel is still fairly limited at the moment, this chic Parisian-style suitcase - which is available in large or cabin bag sizes – strikes the perfect balance between practicality and luxury.
2 - Arthur x Roland-Garros swimming shorts
For posing by the pool, don a pair of Roland-Garros x Arthur 2020 swimming shorts. With their understated yet modern tennis racquet print, these shorts are from the very first collection of swimwear and pyjamas designed by Arthur x RG. Made from recycled plastic bottles, this summer essential is available for men and boys. So get ready to sunbathe in style in these eco-responsible and stylish shorts!
3 - Lacoste x Roland-Garros sunglasses
One of the most prominent features in the Roland-Garros summer wardrobe is the Lacoste x RG sunglasses! We are all familiar with Lacoste and Roland-Garros’ iconic collections and long-lasting collaboration, but this year’s crowning glory is the exclusive range of sunglasses designed especially for the Parisian Grand Slam. We love their look, their shape and the blend of classic and modern styles: their design is simply flawless. You can wear them with jeans, with your favourite summer dress or with your swimwear… These popular sunglasses will be the perfect ally for your holidays and beyond.
4 - Roland-Garros friendship bracelet
Here is why so-called “friendship” bracelets are still in fashion! Highly versatile, they go with anything and delight wearers with their simple sentiment. A sort of good luck charm or symbolic talisman, these bracelets are a lovely reminder of the tournament with their engraved tennis ball charm. These hardy Roland-Garros friendship bracelets can even be worn in the shower or at the beach, to remind you that it’s almost time for Roland-Garros!
5 - The Roland-Garros Color Block capsule fouta
They are making their comeback, slowly but surely – and at a safe distance – on the beaches, by the poolside or in Paris’ parks: foutas and beach towels are a summer must-have. Ideal for sunbathing in comfort, the Roland-Garros fouta from the Color Block capsule collection is perfect for lazing about. Alongside the official tournament towel, this soft and colourful fouta will add a touch of Roland-Garros style to your relaxation space.
6 - The Roland-Garros Héritage capsule tank top
It can be tricky putting together an ideal summer wardrobe, especially if you spend more time on public transport than lazing on the beach. Opt for items that work in both situations and get your hands on a Roland-Garros striped tank top with its simple, easy-to-wear cut. Staying in Paris? Team it with a pair of mules and a modern handbag. At the beach? Leather gladiator sandals will look great, but don’t forget your sunglasses (Lacoste x Roland-Garros) and your wicker bag (Roland-Garros 2019).
7 - The Roland-Garros Color Block capsule cap
Stylish and casual, the Roland-Garros Color Block capsule cap will slide seamlessly into your wardrobe this summer! If you are planning on spending your holiday hiking in the mountains or paddle boarding in the sea, this cap is a must-have with its cool and sporty details. The baseball cap shape makes it a timeless classic and it is available in navy blue or clay orange. The athleisure trend strikes again!
8 - Roland-Garros Serres capsule square cushion
A cult favourite, ideal for long days spent perched on the new wooden seats around Centre Court! Handy and portable, this comfortable accessory will also add a plant-inspired touch to your garden furniture.
