Manduka, creators of high-performance yoga gear designed for and by yogis, revealed its first Fall apparel collection today. Reinforcing the brand’s commitment to providing the highest quality, sustainable performance wear and designed specifically for yoga, the new collection builds on the foundation of best-selling styles from their first collection which launched in February. Taking design cues from traditional Japanese patterns, colors and techniques the collection is sophisticated and modern with a nod to ancient traditions. The result is a collection of premium yoga apparel that can be worn on and off the mat effortlessly taking you from studio to street. The women’s line includes bras, tanks, leggings, capris, shorts, and layering pieces. The men’s line includes shorts, pants, tees, and long sleeve tops and hoodies.
As a leader in the performance yoga gear category, Manduka’s apparel is specifically designed for the practice with innovative fit and comfort to support. This season’s rich color palette features indigo, mazarine blue, raisin, cherry blossom red, and myriad shades of grey. Following the pursuit of natural performance, each fabric is consciously selected to be kind on the earth, soft on the skin and designed to perform. Manduka’s fabrications include unique textures that emulate the look of natural fibers and feel luxurious due to a unique approach to construction, treatments, and finishes. Inspiration is drawn from Japanese surihaku printing and textiles.
“Our design approach to fall was of simplicity, understated quietness and calm as a follow up to the foundational Spring 16 season,” said Joanne Sessler, VP Product & Design of Manduka. “Inspired by Japanese aesthetic principles, we created a richly sophisticated color palate and designs that inspire us to go deeper into our practice, while using the most luxurious sustainable materials and processes.”
Manduka’s apparel line is one of the most sustainable yoga options for practitioners created with recycled polyester, organic cotton, hemp, Tencel & Modal and Sorona. The materials are chosen for breathability, comfort and ultimate movement.
