On Wednesday, Novak Djokovic walked the runway in Paris to debut his new kit with Japanese retail giant Uniqlo. It came one day after the world No. 1 announced he was leaving Italian sportswear designer Sergio Tacchini to sign with the expanding casual wear company.
The design is simple. Djokovic is decked in all-white with red and blue piping on his right shoulder. His polo shirt zips in the middle and Uniqlo logos adorn his chest and shoulder. It's fairly safe for the inaugural design in a deal that's supposed to propel the Fast Apparel company to new heights in Europe and the United States.
On the bright side, it ain't Sergio Tacchini.
The financial terms of the deal weren't announced, but it's safe to say it was a healthy contract. In this picture, Djokovic is shown shaking hands with Fast Apparel CEO Tadashi Yanai. He's the richest man in Japan.
If somebody in the crowd isn't yelling "take it off," then I don't know anything anymore.
