WORK IT  Direction File Download

It is time to get energized from the outside in, as high impact activities are enhanced by a new level of performance fabrics. Fashion, function and fit interact with the body, complimented with an explosion of color and textures in pushing performance to new heights, creating an exhilarating experience all round for the wearer. Pure performance is worked to the full with moisture management, quick dry and compression aspects key to getting the most out of high impact activities and protecting the wearer.

The direction is racy and exciting, keen to attain those work out goals. Fabric structure ranges from compact and precise with compression through to textured on the technical side for a micro massaging effect. This is a multi functional at its finest, not just from the brand ingredients and structures of the fabrics, but through the final garment design. Mix and match solid fabrics and prints, the use of vibrant colors enhances the look combined with a stronger feminine style through cutout and inserts. It’s sassy, bold and will embrace a new level of lustre, from semi matte through to high gloss.
