FILA USA's Fall/Winter 2015 Heritage Apparel Collection Lookbook
(FILA North America) -
FILA Delivers Its Fall/Winter 2015 Apparel Collection Featuring Iconic Styles.
FILA USA continues to place an incredible focus on the Heritage category, which has reintroduced various retro styles in footwear over the course of the last few years. Last winter FILA reintroduced the velour suit in a slimmer fit and style. This season there is two new colorways (Biking Red/FILA Cream) being introduced, keeping true to the brand's DNA.
Much in the same fashion as last season's release, the update begins with the jacket, which includes a slim fit, full zip and embroidered F-box logo on the left chest. The pull on pant of this men's suit has an elastic waist, internal draw cord, two inseam pockets, one back zip pocket, and jeweled F-box logo zipper pulls. The most important update comes within the slim-tapered fit and ribbed cuff bottoms, with zippers for maximum comfort on each ankle. The classic suit is made up of 70% cotton and 30% polyester and in addition to the two new colorways, it will also be available in black, peacoat, and charcoal. The latter three colors will also have a velour half-zip hoody option available, which mirrors the slim fit and features a non-draw cord constructed two-panel hood. Other features of the hoody include set-in sleeves and coiled zipper.
While the velour easily anchors the collection there are a number of other items that easily stand out. The Vintage Jacket and Pant set is sure to snag everyone's attention. The top and bottom is dressed in a poly matte tricot touch, giving this suit a classic feel. The jacket sports a number of features including a drop shoulder, shorter mock neck, overlaid stripes on the sleeves. striped ribbed cuffs and a classic F-Box medallion zipper. The pant completes the set with an inside-waistband draw cord and side seam pockets, mirroring F-Box branding, and an overall tonal look. The set is available in black and peacoat. The third and final set of the collection is the FILA Zip Hoody and Zip Pants. The Zip Hoody is set in a raglan style fit with an appliqué hood featuring the FILA linear logo. The pants feature a waistband draw cords, angled pockets, and ribbed cuff bottoms. The sweatsuits come in four colorways of oatmeal heather, peacoat, black, and biking red.
The collection also carries a few more items worthy of a callout including the Vintage Polo, which is easily one of the most recognizable pieces in Tennis history. This top features a classic snap button ribbed placket and contrast color sleeve and collar. This piece will be available in the classic white/peacoat colorway along with another reintroduced style of FILA Cream/Biking Red. Another top that is included in the collection is the Retro Polo, which features contrast inside placket, articulated side panel, and contrast detailing.
