ASICS takes a Liberty with new collection

A new collection from ASICS maximises the tie-up with the beloved London textile house of Liberty Fabrics.

Famous for colourful floral prints and a strong and popular heritage, the ASICS X collection uses the special designs on active and training wear, along with a footwear range.

Liberty Fabrics has been creating original and inspirational designs for more than 130 years, ASICS reports.

Arthur Liberty opened the first Liberty store in London in 1875 through which he traded exotic goods and textiles from Asia, then called the Far East.

Shortly after, he began working with local artisans and manufacturers to produce Liberty’s own textiles and objet d’art.

By the 1890’s, Liberty Art Fabrics were a byword for the very best in textile design. Today, the Liberty design studio creates more than 120 new prints and patterns annually.

Reports ASICS, “from the studio to the streets, each piece provides lightweight high-function protection for all-round performance.”

The training jacket is constructed. using lightweight ripstop material 36gsm, and soft touch taffeta 49gsm. It features water repellent properties and long body finish for added style and appeal and reflective hex branding.
