Behind the Design: Courtside Collection

We're taking advantage of the last days of summer with lots of outdoor activities, from tennis matches to concerts in the park. And after a long day in the sun what better way to cool off than with our Courtside Collection. We've designed four sleek projects inspired by the runways of Kenzo and Alexander Wang that are perfect for chilling out or getting your game on. Check it out below!

We can count on Humberto Leon and Carol Lim of Kenzo for sporty chic looks every season. Their SS 2015 collection was particularly on point with vibrant blues, reminiscent of blue clay tennis courts, teamed with summer ready mesh and wrap around sunnies. We translated that urban sportif aesthetic throughout our Courtside Collection, like with the Match Point Cuff, seen here illustrated by the amazing Evie S. If diamonds are a girl's best friend, then studs are her cool older sister. 

We've only got eyes for blue. More specifically this Untitled piece by Berlin based artist Claudia Wieser. We love the sharp geometric shapes and edges she employs in shiny metal. 

We're suckers for paper projects, from old fashioned correspondence to these Hot Shot Calling Cards. Whether you need to exchange information for business or pleasure, these knock out cards have got you covered. We've got a whole slew of calling card #makertakes so keep an eye on The Source this month. 

We lucked out this month and were able to shoot the Courtside Collection with our dear friend Trina. Can you say eyebrow envy?

The New York City Parks Department recently repaved some tennis courts right along the Hudson River in the most drool worthy cerulean blue. Needless to say we want to thank all the tennis players who let us bombard the courts right at golden hour. 

Trina getting into the zone.

After a light spritz of our Green Tea Facial Mist, Trina's skin was glowing even after a long hot day of modeling.

Summer got you missing this month's collection? No worries kick up the making in September by reserving your collection now! As always we love seeing what unique spins our maker community puts on projects so keep on sharing your #makertakes with us on Instagram and Twitter
