RUSSELL ATHLETIC SS19
FOR SPRING/SUMMER ’19, RUSSELL ATHLETIC CELEBRATES ITS HERITAGE WITH AN UPDATED CLASSIC AMERICANA COLLECTION.
Russell Athletic, the inventors of the sweatshirt have a proven heritage of on-field performance, craftsmanship and innovative design since 1902. By combining tradition with innovation, it has defined the collegiate look steering it organically from track to street.
For SS19, Russell Athletic launches its first stand-alone womenswear collection alongside updated menswear classics which fuse mid-19th century Americana with details, fabrics and silhouettes designed for 21st-century living, presenting a collection that’s both contemporary and nostalgic and perfect for the warmer months.
Delving into the archives, this SS19 collection reworks iconic sportswear separates by introducing feminine silhouettes to womenswear pieces and injecting modern details such as mesh inserts, unexpected pockets and knitted side stripes to tees, sweatpants and hoodies, all showcasing the brand’s unmistakable ‘Eagle R’ logo which appears in bold, new retro renderings.
Summer fabrics in an array of iconic vintage hues such as orchid, gold fusion, pale banana and moss green, combine old school and high tech with the use of Polyester Twill and Crinkle Taslon, new fabrics such a soft Terry Toweling are launched and classic fabrics such as high-cotton are re-introduced; a plush natural cloth which represents Russell Athletic’s commitment to engineering authentic garments that last.
