They Still Make Them Like They Used to…
Fila Vintage unveils its latest Autumn Winter 2008 collection
Fila, the classic Italian sportswear brand, continues to revive iconic pieces from its archive for its latest Vintage collection. The collection includes original classics such as the Matchday jacket now available in previously rare colourways that capture the spirit of the brand’s heyday as well as 70s and 80s inspired pieces. The collection embraces Fila’s heritage whilst tapping into this season’s trend of more directional casual wear. At the backbone of the collection of sports inspired zip ups, hoodies and t-shirts remains the classic Fila Vintage blue, white and red colour palette, that confirms Fila’s position as the king of retro cool.
Key pieces for this season include:
A contrasting cheque pattern and signature Fila striped side panels give the Sportsman classic jacket a contemporary feel. Without sacrificing substance for style the Sportsman conceals a padded lining keeping even the coolest man warm this winter.
For a bit of old school, the Masters jacket can be worn on its own or under a heavy duty winter coat. Contrasting colours and a detachable hood make this piece the perfect companion when facing the elements.
For the classic indie look, the reversible Victorio jacket stays true to Fila’s 70s heritage. Fusing style and function, this lightweight zip up can transform an outfit from casual to refined just by turning it inside out.
The Autumn Winter 08 collection includes a series of tennis inspired t-shirts boasting a range of comical one liners and prints. Skull gives a playful nod to Fila’s tennis heritage while ‘See you in Court’ playfully teases Fila’s ‘wide boy’ and tennis legacy.
Fila Vintage is an Italian inspired collection that fuses iconic archive pieces with contemporary trends.
