Built functionally to help inspired individuals perform at their peak, yet with enough aesthetic prowess for its technical features to be all but ignored without consequence, the #TRAINBETTER collection from ISAORA comes just in time for a season of ambitious to-dos. Whether you're actively pursuing that elusive beach bod, or just hoping to give off an athletic vibe at the local coffee shop, the fresh collection of gear from the NYC-based brand has you covered with a stitch-less t-shirt and tank top, welded running shorts, bonded sweatpants and ultralight windbreaker.
As with all products blessed with the six letter insignia, the new collection is a highly considered result of extensive R&D, made with form, fit and function in mind. And—thanks to the brand's new direct-to-consumer, online-only business model—it's available at a very reasonable price.
Regarding the garments' details, featured fabrics have been selected for their superlative breathability and quick-drying properties, with laser-cut ventilation to reduce irritation and increase air flow. In fact, wherever possible, traditional stitching has been almost entirely avoided—favoring bonded seams instead. This allows for a lighter weight, more precise fit with fewer friction points. Heat-sealed eyelets and micro-film reflective tape round out the tech-details. As ISAORA puts it, "more tech means less baggage."
Of the lot, we're especially excited about the ergonomically cut Bonded Sweatpants and Wick-Tech No Sew T-shirt and Tank Top stand out. These three pieces are extremely versatile, and can be worn comfortably in a range of settings. The rare, rounded hemlines on the tops add an extra touch of style, while the racing stripe of reflective material on the sweats adds a touch of purpose to the otherwise leisure-minded piece.
Available as of today, 3 June 2014, the #TRAINBETTER Collection is available on ISAORA online. Visit the site to browse this and the many other capsule collections launched in the recent months since the brand's strategic overhaul.
