Most activewear is engineered for performance, but what about the recovery phase? Japanese imprint Goldwin has set out to create a collection that will provide users with clothing that will help their bodies remain in peak shape to enhance the recuperative benefits of passive rest.
Entitled Re-Optimum, the series is made using KODENSHI fiber, a temperature retention material that absorbs and reflects the far-infrared radiation that our bodies emit — resulting in garments that keep you cool or warm, depending on the surrounding weather. The core principle behind the collection is “keeping the temperature close to body temperature,” according to the brand, “even a mere one-degree drop in body temperature can lead to a significant 37% decrease in our immune system’s effectiveness. When our body temperature decreases, achieving a state of deep rest and recovery becomes challenging.”
Available in deep charcoal, ink navy, and oatmeal, the capsule comprises of a sweatshirt made with gussets at the underarm to increase mobility, whereas the sweatpants are full length with a relaxed tapered silhouette. Both garments are crafted with organic cotton on the surface, while the side facing the skin is lined with a mix of KODENSHI and Maxifresh for a soft touch. The Re-Optimum series is available to purchase at Goldwin.
In case you missed it, NOAH takes it back to the basics for its latest November drop.
