Maria Sharapova fronts the latest issue of The Edit, a magazine from online luxury fashion retailer, Net-A-Porter. She’s the first athlete to grace the cover. Within the featured article, “Holding Court,” the tennis star opens up about her dedication and passion for the game, her off-court business ventures like Sugarpova and Supergoop, her home country of Russia, and living a simple life. For the full piece, visit here. Below is an excerpt as Sharapova talks style and dressing out of a suitcase:
The California girl in her favors sportswear with a boho vibe, but she is also drawn to edgier pieces by Isabel Marant, Raquel Allegra and Rick Owens. The key, though, is how well a piece travels. “I was away from April to July, and all I had was one suitcase. I bought one piece while I was away, a Céline coat, and it wasn’t the right time to wear it,” she says. “So by the time I came home, I was ready to drop off the entire case at Goodwill. That’s how my life is – I don’t go to events and borrow Alexander McQueen gowns every week. I’m dressing out of a suitcase.”
The corresponding fashion spread was photographed by Bjorn Iooss and styled by Tracy Taylor. Sharapova is dressed in designs from Isabel Marant, Alexander Wang, Lanvin, Victoria Beckham, Valentino and Jil Sander, described by the magazine as “the new transeasonal silhouettes.” To shop the looks featured in Maria’s shoot, visit here.
