I  got in touch with Fila and received exclusive information about their new Platinum collection to be debuted at the 2015 US Open.

Fila prides itself on designing a collection that is a "modern day version of a suit of armor ready for battle on the tennis court", owing to THERMOCOOL(TM) fabric which optimizes the body's natural thermal capabilities through smart fiber cross-sections, tonal jacquard and mesh texture pairings, laser-cut no-sew seams, silhouettes that enhance the form via body-map inserts, and intelligently placed media ports to accommodate tech devices. The colors Fila played with this time include black, while and teal piranha.
