Music and blazing colors inspire enhanced performance for higher impact activities. Look to new fabric constructions and targeted mesh and punch out details for a seamless-inspired performance. Hybridized structures feature as as garments eliminate seams through on-target. A strong fashion push features, as does creativity. It is time to push the activewear sector to a new level and feel the actual beat of the market with fabrics that react and respond efficiently with each stride.

On the color front there will be a combination of intense classic tones complimented by a new charge of tones. Fabric constructions also pull from the more pro-level arena in creating clean cut and heat bonded constructions and innovative compression applications. Increased technicity is key to this direction, lighter, stronger, faster through the use of multi functional ingredients. The concept is to accelerate the performance of the wearer but in turn inject a new beat of creativity on the design front.

activewear - feel the beat.
