James Blake Unveils His Thomas Reynolds Collection

September 9, 2009 11:29 AM

American tennis superstar James Blake unveiled his sophisticated Thomas Reynolds Collection in collaboration with Fila just before the 2009 US Open in New York.

James wanted to develop an apparel and footwear brand that he could continue to build on long past his professional tennis career. After months of working with the design team at Fila, James’ collection, Thomas Reynolds, was born. 

Thomas Reynolds incorporates the heritage of the Fila brand with a trendy spin inspired by James’ active and refined style. Pieces include tennis and fitness clothing, along with footwear and lifestyle apparel for men. The line, James’ pride and joy, connects tennis and life, as it blends style and performance.

When James lost his father to cancer in 2004, he wanted to embody the valuable lessons and legacy of the person he calls his “mentor, hero, and father.” He wanted to make him a part of the brand. So James chose the name Thomas Reynolds after his father, Thomas Reynolds Blake. 

The full range of Thomas Reynolds styles will launch in Spring 2010. The fall tennis styles will be available at Fila.com, tenniswarehouse.com, and select tennis specialty stores nationwide.
