Technology and a competitive edge are the themes of H&M’s new tennis collection, made in collaboration with Tomas Berdych, who will wear pieces from the range at the London Masters 2014. The collection is the latest in a long-term partnership between H&M and tennis player Tomas Berdych, currently ranked 7th in the world. He wears H&M on and off-court, as well as contributes to the design of the collection with the team at H&M.

The collection, available in selected stores as well as online, draws inspiration from Samurai Culture and fractured mineral formations, using new technologies and materials for both function and style.

I love how this collection brings together fashion and technology,” says Tomas Berdych. “The basis of a good collaboration is being able to understand each other, to listen and to share objectives. I’m really pleased that our collaboration works so well.

Pieces include a heat reactive printed T-shirt, and a polo decorated with a fragmented mineral pattern. As well as shorts, tights and caps, there are also pieces for keeping warm off-court in the winter months, such as a transforming parka and technical warm-up pants.
