Ralph Lauren Redesigns Wimbledon
Ralph Lauren has become the first ever Official Outfitter of Wimbledon. The brand will design and dress all on-court officials, umpires, ball boys and ball girls, in the new Ralph Lauren-designed uniforms.
Ralph Lauren reinterprets the officials’ clothing in a contemporary and stylish manner. The timelessness and elegance of the Championships is enhanced by the new navy blue and cream colors of the uniforms.
The ball persons' uniforms consist of a navy polo top with sporty white striping, enlarged Polo Player logo and newly designed Ralph Lauren/Wimbledon crest on the sleeve, worn with navy shorts for the boys and with a navy skirt for the girls. In addition, both boys and girls have a navy fleece warm up suit with zipped jacket. All the uniforms will be available for the public to buy from June 06.
Picasso canvas sells for $95-million
A portrait by Pablo Picasso of the woman who influenced him in the late 1930s and early 1940s sold for $95.2-million (U.S.), the second-highest amount ever paid for a painting at auction, the auction house Sotheby's said.
Dora Maar au chat, which depicts Picasso's mistress, went to an anonymous buyer in the room who was competing with telephone bidders on Wednesday night.
Its selling price ranked second only to another Picasso piece, Garçon à la pipe, which sold at Sotheby's for more than $104-million in May, 2004, Sotheby's said.
