Fila Launches Collection in Honor of the Notorious B.I.G.

Fila is celebrating the 25th anniversary of the Notorious B.I.G’s famous debut album, “Ready to Die,” by creating a special collection.
The sporting goods brand partnered with the Christopher Wallace Estate on the six-piece Fila x Biggie Collection, which includes a T-shirt and visor from the Fila archives as well as a new sneaker model, each offered in two colorways.
The collection will be sold beginning today on the Fila web site and on May 21, in honor of the late rapper’s birthday, it will be expanded to select specialty retailers.
“We created this exclusive collection to honor a groundbreaking album, artist and pop culture icon who has left a lasting impact in the music world and beyond,” said Louis W. Colon 3rd, vice president of heritage and trend for Fila North America. “The era’s most iconic hip-hop stars embraced the Fila brand, with memorable looks. In 1993, Biggie took the stage in Philadelphia wearing the T-shirt and matching visor that are part of the collaborative collection today.”
The graphic T as well as the visor, both of which retail for $ 25, are available in white and aqua as well as cream. The T-shirt features a scribble design inside an enlarged Fila “F.”

Fila RTW Fall 2020

There was a slick, Space Age feel to this collection, the first, full fall effort under creative directors Antonino Ingrasciotta and Josef Graesel. The duo took inspiration from cold-weather heroes, including the Italian mountaineer Reinhold Messner, and spun climbing, skiing and sports clothing into pieces for everyday life. Standout looks included slim puffers and sweaters adorned with abstract mountain silhouettes in white, blue or gray. Models wore elegant white puffer shawls-come-dresses, or all-black jackets more suited to urban terrain. The presentation was fun, with scarves, sneakers and gloves suspended inside huge blocks of real ice, and a soundtrack meant to echo climbers’ boots crackling on the frozen snow.
WWD Critique: Ingrasciotta and Graesel are having fun plundering the Fila archives and viewing this sports brand through the lens of fashion and streetwear. They are turning Fila into a thoughtful, polished collection that just happens to be inspired by outdoor sports.

Phillip Lim x Fila Debut Third Collaboration in Shanghai

SHANGHAI — Fans of the Phillip Lim and Fila crossover collections are in luck: The American designer is set to create at least two more collections with the sports label over the course of the coming year, extending what was originally a two-year deal.
The designer shared the plans for a continuation of the partnership just after presenting his third collection with Fila. In another sign of deepening commitment, it was also the first time the collection was presented through a runway show format, which was streamed live online from the Minsheng Art Wharf in Shanghai.
“I think any type of relationship you get to know each other and there’s a honeymoon period,” Lim said. “It’s like dance partners and now we have a rhythm going on.”
The theme was “off court” — or clothes that blur the line between the court to city streets. Comprised of 56 looks, the show opened with sunny shades of yellow while a joyful tie-dye motif ran throughout the collection, although it was color blocked and paired with striped patterns to give it a more athletic look.
“We tried to weave in Fila’s heritage but also what we do,” Lim said. “The trenchcoat that opened the show was

Dyne Expands Into Eyewear, Working With Fila

Christopher Bevans continues to spread his wings.
The founder and designer of Dyne used his skills working with technical fabrics that he applied to interesting sports-inspired silhouettes as well as complementary products such as eyewear, socks and bags.

In his spring presentation in New York earlier this week, Bevans offered a tight collection of T-shirts, anoraks, track pants and sweats all updated through the use of creative fabrics.

Case in point was a technical T-shirt created through a sublimation technique with a graphic design that Bevans said was “inspired by geometry and motion” and a pattern informed by tropical birds. A hooded anorak and lightweight pants with a drawstring waist sported the same pattern.

Bevans also showcased a fabric innovation he discovered in Taiwan that used recycled paper for short-sleeve shirts. 

The spring collection, called “Colour Theory,” included baby French terry sweatshirts and a raincoat in a reflective camouflage pattern.

Bevans revealed he’s now working with Fila on a special capsule using wool — the designer is a Woolmark Award winner — and has also jumped into the eyewear market. His line of glasses had acetate or metal frames, some with snap-on lenses. The glasses will retail for $ 220 to $ 325 and will ship in a

Fila to Introduce Explore Collection, Blending Sports and Style

Fila is heading to the mountains, the woods and the canyons for its newest collection. The company has created Explore, a limited-edition assortment of footwear, apparel and accessories for men and women that will have a soft launch at ComplexCon in Chicago this weekend.
To support the launch, Fila will open experiential pop-up stores in SoHo in New York, in Los Angeles and in several other cities around the world on July 26.
The genesis of the collection dates to 1978 when mountaineer, adventurer and explorer Reinhold Messner was the first to summit Mount Everest without the aid of supplemental oxygen dressed in high-tech Fila gear.
While Explore is inspired by this feat and the brand’s outdoor heritage in skiing, hiking and trekking, the collection is “not so literal, but is more fashion-driven,” according to Louis W. Colon 3rd, Fila North America’s vice president of heritage and trend. So it’s better suited to hanging out at a festival than hiking the Appalachian Trail.
He said many customers still think of Fila as a tennis or basketball brand, but it has a rich history in other outdoor sports as well and the new collection is intended “to get customers to explore the brand more. There are tons
