The luxury sportswear market is a booming one. There is something very rakish about jogger trousers, luxury sneakers and a sequined Burberry zip-up jacket. But what about the actual sportswear market? What does one wear when they really need to work out and want to look good doing it.
Xavier Athletica are a new brand that are seeking to offer an alternative to mass-produced, big brand menswear. The brand excels in offering premium, tailored active wear. Launched at the start of 2016 with a carefully curated collection of athleisure wear that boasts a simple and clean aesthetic. The focus is on natural fabrics that are durable, breathe naturally and offer temperature regulation. Of course, the style is classic and flattering and a great alternative to what everyone else in the gym is wearing.
Designed as “real kit for real people” the collection can be worn in almost any active scenario – on the street, in the gym and in your yoga / pilates class. Perhaps what we love the most is the fact that they are all designed for men, with a priority on style, fit, movement and comfort.
Designed by Satish Tailor, the former head of design at Adidas and Puma, key pieces in the capsule collection include the core long sleeve top with a tailored shape and underarm panels, the lightweight workout vest and the cool down hoodie made from premium cotton loopback cotton fleece.
