— With the running line, including our first athleisure collection for men, we combine this with great functionality to ensure highest possible performance, she says, continuing,

What are the key pieces for Men’s?

— The windbreaker, made entirely out of recycled polyester, paired with shorts in the same material. The jacket comes in an orange pop color, definitely one of the most eye-catching garments to wear in the tracks this spring.

How have you worked with sustainability?

— Sustainability is at the core of our design process. Besides the longevity of all of the garments, the collection includes a windbreaker with reflective material made entirely out of recycled polyester. The men’s collection adds shorts in the same material, compression tights to pair with T-shirts, tights, and a warm-up fleece that combines a foundation of 80–90% recycled fibres with complementing materials for enhanced functionality.
