The 21st century has breathed new life into the fashion world. In the past we could rarely observe two popular brands collaborating on a new fashion line. Nowadays it has already become a norm for us to enjoy the products resulted from the collab of our favorite clothiers. Day by day fresh new collabs are taking the fashion world by storm. This time around the collaboration builders are scandalous American multinational clothing retailer Urban Outfitters and one of the leaders of sportswear companies, Fila. This time, Urban Outfitters is sure to record a release devoid of any religious or ethical scandals since its companion is Fila, which has already established itself as a cult-classic manufacturer of sportswear. The Urban Outfitters x Fila 2015 collection is already available for purchase on the brand’s website and the retail prices range from $28 for hoop earrings to $128 for the orange Fila + UO “Miss Surtur” Windbreaker.
The Urban Outfitters + Fila collaboration is about an athletic collection of women’s tennis sportswear. We are happy to find here a range of polo shirts and dresses, front snap and pleated skirts, shorts and leggings, raglans, windbreaker, as well as bucket hats and sporty bags. What may mostly be appreciated by sporty girls is the reissue of Fila’s signature Cage high-top basketball sneakers. These retro pieces will make your tennis playing not only comfortable and fun, but will also accentuate your feminine silhouettes. On every single sporty piece you will find the Fila original 1973 red, navy and ecru logo printed.
As a matter of fact, the collaborative line is inspired from the most important periods of Fila’s history those being ‘70s, ‘80s and ‘90s. Let us remember that it was in the ‘70s that the brand gained huge popularity thanks to the Swedish tennis player Bjorn Borg becoming the champion wearing a Fila polo and headband with visible F-box logo on them. The ‘80s were marked by Fila’s sponsorship of US market, supplying them sporty pieces for the next 22 years. And finally it was in the ‘90s that the brand introduced its popular Cage sneakers intended for basketball and other outdoor sports. And now in 2015 the iconic brand has teamed up with the youth-oriented Urban Outfitters to resurrect its retro pieces, which will be available on Monday online and in 94 stores of Urban Outfitters and which will attract thousands of customers that are keen to purchase sporty vintage staples.
The collection proves to be the embodiment of sporty femininity with its pleated Settanta Skirt, which is short cut and with high waist or with its logo leggings that will gracefully accentuate any tennis girl’s sensual body. Let us throw a look at the array of comfy color-block sweatshirts, throwback T-shirts and cropped polo shirts that will surely make your movements easy while playing your favorite tennis. The color-block jacket with sporty stripes and the orange classic windbreaker will protect you from the wind on the court. Your standout pieces may become the throwback polo dresses, which you can even wear in your everyday life as a memento of your tennis mania. You can also protect yourself from the sun rays with Fila’s knitted beanie or striped bucket. The Dwyer shoulder bag will be ideal for packing all your sporty pieces and heading to the training room.
