L'Etoile Sport Tennis Togs

Winning style on (and off) the court

Workout gear. It’s all fun and games until you try wearing it to brunch.

Cue Hannah Griswold and Yesim Philip, the duo behind tennis-inspired label L’Etoile Sport.

The athletic pair’s New York-based line pits fashion against function with winning results. Philip played professional basketball in Turkey and hits the tennis court about ten hours a week. Griswold, who lived with the American Ballet until age 17, makes wardrobe picks based around her love of the game.

Pleated skirts and dresses, sleeveless pique polos, and lace-trimmed stretch shorts (for layering or wearing solo) pass muster in the preppiest arenas. Zip-away skirts, sleek boatneck tees, and moisture-wicking Italian fabric blends spur stuff-shirted onlookers to step up their fashion game.

They’re serving clothes that pair as well with tennis shoes and rackets as sandals and Sunday mimosas.

That’s a match.
