Last night I was invited to PUMA x BORIS BECKER Lifestyle Launch (#pumatennis) 2015 on 524 Flinders Street where Boris Becker relaunched his trademark red and white trainers he wore in 1985 when he was only 17 years old! This trendy venue were also filled with Melbourne’s well known fashionistas (Jess Dempsey from What Would Karl Do, Dasha and Colin from the Trendspotter, Gemma Watts from Coutouring), musos, magazine editors; and the most coolest display of PUMA trainers and details like old-school tennis racquets, fake-grass tennis court, and the Social Playground Photobooth.
The biggest highlight of-course was meeting my childhood tennis player, Boris Becker who looked super relaxed and casual in his blue jacket over a monochrome polo shirt with dark denim, and red and white trainers. I must admit, I couldn’t recognise him at first because it’s been so long ago, but it was inspiring to learn that he’s still active in the Tennis Sporting industry – the current tennis coach to Novak Djokovic! I’m just glad he brought back his red and white trainers, because it just goes well with anything from streetwear and, if you are daring like me… tee them with culottes, long pants, dress which I saw a lot of when I was at New York Fashion Week!
Anyway these trainers are available at Platypus so get your hands on a pair because I’m sure I’ll be wearing mine at Fashion Week!
