For those of you whose sporting preferences a little more genteel and luxurious than the World Cup, the next fortnight marks one of the most historic and prestigious events in the British calendar, the Wimbledon tennis championships. Wimbledon is the height of the grass court season and the rich and famous flock to the grounds of SW19 to catch a glimpse of Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Andy Murray. Alongside the sport the fashion plays an important part too, and here at Podarok we have a number of products that pay tribute to nature and the aesthetic of the grass court season. Take a look!
The glorious green of the grass season is the main image that comes to mind when thinking about the style of Wimbledon, and Michael Michaud's range of nature inspired jewellery is a perfect tribute to the variety and beauty of the natural world. Unfortunately no strawberry designs here, but the rest of nature is covered pretty well with creations including pea pods, raspberries, acorns, clover and sequoia. Make a statement as large as Novak Djokovic's serve with one of these stunning pieces for your own collection.
Another collection of jewellery that accompanies that summery, natural feel of the Wimbledon courts is this range of sterling silver pieces by Birmingham based artist and designer Collette Waudby. Perhaps more suited to those who prefer a more subtle statement than what Michael Michaud has to offer, the delicate lines and simple yet stunning curve of the leaves that Collette so beautifully highlights in her jewellery are as stylish and elegant as Roger Federer's backhand.
Fancy staying at home and watching from the comfort of your living room instead? Good idea, over the years we have seen that the Great British weather is not always kind to those who visit Wimbledon in person. Those familiar rainclouds can be ever so dark, and these delightful table lamps and candle covers by artist and designer Hannah Nunn will keep you bathed in a warm glow through even the roughest of rain delays. Adorned with various flowers and plants, Hannah's creations certainly keep up the theme of summer and nature.
