Carbon38 announces the launch of its first tennis capsule collection in collaboration with EleVen by Venus Williams.
Recognized as the best in performance fashion, Carbon38 matches up with the best of tennis, Venus Williams, on the brand’s first designer collaboration with an elite athlete.
With a highly curated blend of the world’s foremost designers and an exclusive branded label, Carbon38 acts as curators, offering a thoughtful collection of over 80 global brands, both established and emerging names, with a focus on female founders.
As collaborators, the brand partners with forward-thinking designers on exclusive capsules, such as Carbon38 x EleVen by Venus Williams. And as creators, Carbon38’s branded label delivers active essentials designed with fashion in mind.
Founded by tennis champion and entrepreneur Venus Williams, EleVen is a lifestyle and fashion-forward activewear brand creating premium women’s tennis and everyday apparel.
The brand was started with the dream of creating a community to help empower women to feel and do their best in clothing that they can feel confident in on and off the court.
The partnership between Carbon38 and EleVen by Venus Williams developed organically, as both brands strive to embolden women in their everyday lives.
"Carbon38 and EleVen share the same passion for empowering women, so our goal was to co-design a collection reflective of that. I’m so proud of what we have created and hope it will inspire women to push themselves to reach new heights in all aspects of their life,” Venus Williams, Founder & CEO of EleVen.
The capsule was thoughtfully designed as a mix of true performance wear with technical features that support active pursuits and transitional pieces—items that are able to keep up with women throughout their day.
“We are inspired by all Venus does, both on and off the court. Her mission with EleVen aligns with ours at Carbon38 - to empower women to embrace a new way of dressing, one that combines the DNA of activewear with beautiful ready-to-wear silhouettes. We couldn’t be happier with how the collection turned out and are excited to share it with our customers,” Katie Warner Johnson, Co-Founder & CEO of Carbon38.
The collection features a variety of silhouettes in Carbon38’s signature Cloud Compression and Micro Terry fabrications with a bold color palette of Sky Aqua, Peony, Shibori Plaid Print, and a neutral White.
The collection, which ranges from $78- $118, consists of 12 styles including tank tops, sports bras, leggings, shorts, skirts, long- and short-sleeved crops, a tennis dress, and a romper, along with a bucket hat ($48) and socks ($14).
