Complementing the demands of a working class that is determined on workouts, Blackbarrett’s Active line for the Autumn/Winter 2018 seasons not only looks good on the outside, but makes you feel good on the inside too.
Taking design cues from the football sport, Blackbarrett has instilled a repeat pattern to apply to different garments. Different football related graphics, such as the football net, are worked into geometrical artworks, alongside the use of sharp lines at various angles to produce a strong sporty graphic in both bold stripes and linear lines.
Blackbarrett’s very own mascot aliens, who have taken to the gym to build some muscles, are also featured in this season’s collection. The popular artwork from the Autumn/Winter 2017 collection gets a sequel in this year’s range, as prints of the balloon spider and the balloon alien are augmented using the signature 3D mesh print technology.
Need some motivation before starting your day’s run? You need to look no further than your reflection in the mirror, donned in some of Blackbarrett’s pieces with motivational quotes, such as “never give up”, “fitter, faster, stronger” and “no pain, no gain”, on the inside and outside of the garments.
When it comes to the garment details, Blackbarrett has increased ventilation for every piece from the collection, using innovative heatseal and bonding processes to create functional and lightweight pieces for a more comfortable active lifestyle. Besides that, active fits are experimented with the additions of some contemporary oversized volumes, as well as original fits that are re-structured to aid in better ease of movement.
For those who prefer workouts in the evening, reflective detailing is worked into the garments to increase visibility, as well as unique hidden pockets for your essentials, keeping them close to your chest as you are on the move.
Last but not least, one can expect hybrid garments for the Blackbarrett outerwear, consisting of a fusion of woven pieces, knitwear and sweatshirting – all of which provides a new dimension to the classic sportswear.
