The History of Fila
Hailing from Italy, Fila first made a name for itself in the 1970s through its association with legendary tennis player Bjorn Borg. The brand's genius designer Pier Luigi Rolando brought Mediterranean flair to sportswear with fitted silhouettes and luxurious cashmere blend fabrics. Over the following decades, Fila also dressed key players in the worlds of skiing, mountain climbing and golf. During the 90s, the brand become a favourite of hip hop culture, with recent looks revisiting that era to excite a whole new generation of shoppers.
