What’s better than driving a sleek car by McLaren? Driving a sleek car by McLaren while wearing its equally elegant clothes.
The British luxury pioneering supercar company has partnered with British premium sportswear brand Castore to debut their first technical male sportswear collection.
Taking inspiration directly from McLaren’s modern engineering and use of lightweight materials to improve performance, the limited-edition Castore collection is designed to offer style and comfort in cotton T-shirts, performance tops and outerwear.
Bonded seams, a sonic welded construction and heat transferred interior components keep garments highly streamlined and near-weightless. The collection also embraces smooth, sloping curves and hexagonal grid formations, while creating a streamlined and flattering silhouette with an understated yet distinctive aesthetic.
Each piece is ergonomically cut for ease of movement and offers superior wicking, odor-resistance, four-way stretch and a unique mesh construction that increases airflow, cooling and ventilation.
Castore was founded to create the highest quality sportswear in the world and its collaboration with McLaren is true to that pioneering spirit. Both British brands were drawn together by an enduring quest for creating products of exceptional quality and unrivalled user experience.
As with McLaren’s supercars, every last detail has been thoughtfully considered and executed in the creation of their collaborative performance collection.
Hero pieces include a range of performance tees. With thermo regulation properties through Coldblack technology, the performance tee reduces heat buildup while protecting you from the sun’s rays through a UVA and UVB protection textile finish. The tees also feature laser-mapping design in key sweat zones to increase airflow through the garment, making them the ideal choice when you’re training or on the move.
The utilization of advanced engineering techniques is key to every piece of the collection. A case in point is the technical softshell jacket, which is designed for both style and function. Showcasing a streamlined silhouette and relaxed athletic fit, the jacket is highly breathable and also includes seal branding to reduce added weight. Featuring water repellent zip closures, the collection’s Softshell Jacket is a model example of light outerwear for an active lifestyle.
The Castore and McLaren collection is available at Castore stores and castore.com.
