The start of the U.S. Open — one of four majors on the tennis calendar and thus a huge deal — may still be days away, but the excitement is palpable. Major storylines are playing out in tantalizing dramatic fashion across both the men’s and women’s sides, and much more importantly, the barrage of tennis-forward apparel and accessories is finally hitting stores.

Top of our list for new releases is the Rothy’s US Open capsule, in partnership with water company Evian. The seven-item collection, featuring two signature footwear styles, as well as select gear for the court, pays homage to the classic concept of tennis whites, a stark base ror bold reds, rosy pinks and distinguished navy. The reimagined RS01 Sneaker, in particular, is a standout, with a flexible upper and contoured footbed perfect for courtside viewing and barhopping alike.

More than just a sartorial smash, Rothy’s x Evian is an ace in the sustainability department; the collection is specifically designed using the 72,000 Evian water bottles collected from last year’s tournament. “The goal [of the collection] was to give the plastic bottles a purposeful and design-forward second life,” the brand said, highlighting Rothy’s low waste, circular-focused manufacturing method, involving a knit-to-shape process utilizing recycled, plastic-based thread.

Designed in LEED- and TRUE- certified factories — ones operating with green building practices and achieving zero waste — each piece uses a number of recycled Evian water bottles in its construction, ranging from a sleek Visor (4) to the chic Duffle Bag (54), a nod toward the labels collection’s pursuit of a more sustainable future.
