The Wimbledon Championships were founded in 1877 and, at nearly 140 years old, are the oldest tennis tournament. Wimbledon fever has set in and we can't wait to incorporate all things tennis for the next fortnight!
After a year without Wimbledon we are besides ourselves with excitement as our favourite event of the summer kicks off this week. We're fully immersing ourselves with all things Wimbledon for the next fortnight, which means all white, Pimms and strawberries & cream are essentials for participating in this quintessentially British event.
The Wimbledon Champions is the biggest fixture on the professional tennis calendar. The tradition that players have to wear all whites dates back to when people would play tennis at social events and sweating was viewed as improper... and thankfully sweat shows up less on whites than colour. Now we are in a post-sweat-shaming society it's just chic.
Setting the scene
We hope you've got a comfy sofa ready to glue yourself to. Ours will be under our Holly Octagonal Parasol. If we had to choose one our sofa pick would be the gorgeous Wodge Modular Sofa from Loaf (below)! Strap in tight as your parasol and sofa will be your best friend for the next few weeks.
Hats are a must
If you're not on Centre Court you might need a hat for the matches. We'll be dressing up while watching at home, and thankfully, you won't have to worry about blocking the view of the observers behind you. We're lusting over the Yosuki panama hat (left), and Missoni Mare striped straw hat (right). J'adore!
