As we near the end of this year’s Roland Garros, we thought we would offer a few suggestions on the best French Open themed purchases from this year’s gift shop. In our personal opinion, the merchandise on offer at the Roland Garros Store surpasses any of the other slams in both style and product. From chic apparel and adorable gift items to altogether classy memorabilia, the Roland Garros Store is definitely our favorite among the gift shops of professional tennis tournaments. Although shopping on site offers a fun boutique atmosphere, the Roland Garros Store is also available online, so you can place orders from anywhere in the world. Check out our top picks below!
If you are anything like us, fashionable activewear makes up a majority of our wardrobe these days. This graphic sweatshirt, politely asking “quiet please” en francais, contains a nod to legendary French tennis player Suzanne Lenglen. She was a pioneer for women’s athletics and fashion, which makes us say “Oui! Oui!” to this special piece. Lightweight but warm, this top will be our go-to choice for sporty outings during the tournament.
Also for the ladies, we love the preppy look and feel of this pique shirtdress with a special Roland Garros logo. Perfect for catching the tennis, or any other casual summer activity, the clean lines and simple silhouette of this frock embodies all that is French tennis fashion.
Show off your dedication to the dirt and learn to “parlez francais” with this awesome French Open T-shirt. Although literally translating to “Bare Ground”, Terre Battue is how the French refer to a clay court.
This men’s activewear shirt, emblazoned with the Roland Garros logo, will give you that extra inspiration during your next tennis match. Worn by Jo Wilfried Tsonga in 2016, this shirt is sure to make you feel like a true pro…. or at least look like one!
There is no better way for a little one to feel part-of-the-action than to sport the same gear as the official Roland Garros ball kids. The athletic, stylish and chic outfits, produced by Adidas, are sure to be a hit at any age.
Invariably at some point during The French Open, you will find the need for an umbrella, and this year has been no exception. I’m sure the shop sold many of these eye catching umbrellas during the two washed out tournament days this week. With wooden handles and convenient shoulder straps, these sturdy, beautiful and classic umbrellas from Roland Garros are perfect souvenirs for on-site attendees and off-site fans alike. Who knows, if you have one of these court-side, Novak might even snatch it out of your hands during the rain delay!
The Roland Garros player gift always includes a set of towels, so if you really want to feel like one of the competitors, then the official French Open towel is a great choice. We simply LOVE the fact that free-personalization of your initials is included in the price of any towel.
