Rafa for NSW

As we gear up for full-on immersion in Tennis land, a la Wimbledon 2011, we had to take a moment to acknowledge the recent Clay vs. Grass campaign featuring world No. 1, Spanish dreamboat, Rafa Nadal. Shot by Dusan Reljin for NSW, the sportswear collection features a graphic striped “Grand Slam” polo, chino shorts and a classic canvas Harrington jacket — a nice departure from the performance and apparel and shots we usually see Rafa framed in. By the way, Nike JUST released sneak peak images of the new kits that the dream team will sport during the upcoming Grand Slam Tournament. If you are like us, obsessed with Tennis, check out our recent coverage of the Roland-Garros to tide you over till next week. ¡Vamos Rafa! – Jeanine Pesce
