Tennis balls, rackets and courts, crocodiles, an umpire’s chair and a pattern of folded polos which were printed in loops and repeated in abstract patters on shirts, pants and parkas. This print on print infusion in shades of pop orange, cobalt blue and ivory saw peter pan collars, matching accessories, Harrington jackets and summer trench coats to accomplish the print on print look.
