Black to Basics: Fitness fashion goes back to black
Not everyone wants someone else’s name splashed across their backside when they’re working out or to be seen in tights that are louder than the front row of a Bodyattack class.
Brash, bright and clashing prints are designed to draw the eye but what if you would rather be understated and cool than scream for attention?
Well, Melbourne’s monochromatic fitness wear label SLY Active has a solution for those who choose sleek over shriek and have created high-performance active wear which is sneakily bringing black back into fitness fashion.
Simple, well-designed pieces made from quality fabric, that’s what’s in fashion according to SLY Active.
SLY Active Director Yetta Klyachko says black high-performance apparel can be hard to find among a sea of fluoro, slogans and prominent prints.
“We set out to design sleek sportsluxe active wear which could be accessible to everyday people and free from branding and loud patterns,” Yetta said. “Our range combines cutting edge design and quality active fabrics which will stand up to the test in the gym or in the fashion stakes. Tops that scream for you to work harder, faster and longer aren’t to everyone’s taste and neither are bold tights that draw attention to every bump and curve. We know in Melbourne that black never goes out of fashion and our range will stand up to the test of time for seasons to come.”
The SLY Active range includes leggings, compression leggings, latest fashion tanks and tees, shorts, hoodies and a dedicated Junior range for little fitness fans.
SLY can also work with fitness professionals, fun run teams and start-up fitness fashion labels to create unique pieces in desired colour, style and fabric.
