With well over 100 years of sportswear expertise behind them, it is safe to say Russell Athletic know their way around a sweatshirt. As the original founders of the sweatshirt, they are breathing new life into their Spring – Summer 2016 collection by offering a contemporary twist on leisurewear basics.
Sporting a distinctly ’80s feel to their Summer collection, inspired by the era’s colour palette as well as the fabric itself, utilizing 280g french terry or loop back fleece and 220g flatweave jersey, all inspired by original pieces from the period found in the brand’s Alabama history. Look out for block colour crewneck sweats, trackpants, logo tees, leggings, shorts and zip-up sweat jackets.
The new Russell Athletic Summer offering elevates itself above the rest of the brand’s recent collections and stays true to its invention of the Athleisure trend. No wonder Liezel van der Westhuizen, Mishka Patel, Kurt Coleman, Cheslin Kolbe, Robbie Kruse and Jan Braai are avid fans!
