Engineered for Modern Living

Standing as a celebration of rejuvenation, movement and human connection, the Reiss x Castore SS24 Collection prioritises comfort and maximum performance to push the boundaries of hybrid lifestyle sportswear. Technical fabrications, bonded seams and moisture-wicking fabrications allow for all day wear. 

Hybrid lifestyle garments crafted to move with you. 

We chatted to the Castore design team on the design process for the Reiss collection. 

When did the design process for Castore x Reiss Drop 3 begin? 

The research and concept creation process began at the start of 2023.

What inspired the Castore x Reiss Collection? What are the aesthetic and tech influences? 

The collection was inspired by our athletes' on-the-go, modern lifestyle. Every fabric, finish and trim are carefully selected to aid comfort and performance - enabling our garments to seamlessly transition between exercise and daily urban activities. The minimalist design aesthetic paired with innovative technical solutions further assist the versatility of this range.

Talk us through the collection – what are the key product highlights of the Castore X Reiss Collection?

The objective for the Reiss x Castore collection was to push the boundaries of hybrid lifestyle sportswear. To make this intention possible we addressed 3 key areas: Thermoregulation, Protection and Freedom of Movement. Firstly, to address temperature regulation, we utilised our latest technology; AEROMESH a fabrication which enhances airflow in key sweat zones. 

A great example of how we further addressed thermoregulation is on the Adler Jacket - the ultra-light fabric is paired with a mesh lined vent at the back body and laser-cut perforations at the hood stand. 

As a precision Sportswear brand, we understand the challenges of unpredictable weather conditions brought on by outdoor training. We enhanced protection by adding our PROTEK finish to all woven fabrics, providing them with a water repellent shield. We also added water-repellent finishes to zip pockets ensuring personal belongings stay dry. To further address the wearer’s protection, we introduced an iridescent reflective tab to garments providing visibility in low light settings. Finally, to address comfort and freedom of movement we utilised bonded hems and anatomically placed seams to eliminate irritation and maximise mobility.

What is the standout product of the Reiss collection?

Cruze Hybrid Jacket is a perfect example of how we have engineered garments for modern living. We maximised warmth and protection by using lightly wadded woven panels in the body with our PROTEK water repellent finish ensuring performance isn’t hindered by the elements. To maximise comfort and freedom of movement, we utilised a stretchy interlock fabrication on the sleeves to ensure the wearer remains cool in all conditions. To enhance breathability, we engineered laser-cut perforations through-out the wadded body panels to further assist airflow.
