FILA and Bandier to Launch Three Exclusive Capsule Collections for Fall/Winter 2018
The FILA x Bandier collections were designed with three distinct themes, carefully curated to offer something special for the Bandier shopper. Each unique line takes inspiration from FILA’s archives, with versatile pieces for a mix and match wardrobe. The limited-edition offerings include luxe fabrics, signature FILA silhouettes reimagined with contemporary updates, and thoughtful attention to detail.
A collection that radiates sophistication, the first FILA x Bandier capsule takes sartorial cues from FILA’s tennis roots. Pieces are designed in FILA’s signature red, white and navy color palette - with the addition of a light blue hue - and classic pinstripes decorate fabrics like terry and suede. The range consists of eight styles, including tops, jackets, skirts and a matching sweat suit. Among the key pieces are the varsity jacket and pinstripe terry sweat suit, while a baseball cap and FILA’s Original Fitness and Drifter sandal silhouettes complete the collection.
Comfortable, cozy and chic, capsule two features a sleek black, white and gray colorway. With a variety of knits, neoprene designs and color block detailing, the line makes a simple yet strong statement. Standout items include the long varsity jacket and turtleneck sweater, while staple styles like crop sweatshirts, tees and leggings round out the collection. To complement the apparel, the capsule includes a waistpack and an exclusive FILA Disruptor 2 footwear style.
The third collection is marked by the boldness of its prints and the introduction of seasonal hues like rose and chive green. Playful in its details, a selection of track suits, graphic tees and hoodies are embellished with NYC landmarks and tiger graphics. Additional decorative elements include knit taping, metallic star detailing, an ombre striped print, and a fusion of the FILA and Bandier logos. An exclusive FILA Disruptor 2 design ties back to the colorway of the collection.
The first FILA x Bandier collection will launch the week of September 17, with capsules two and three to follow in October and November. Items will be available exclusively at Bandier locations and at Bandier.com.
