Gym wear gets the Midas touch
The new Manuka Life AW16 collection, ‘The Midas Collection’, shot in Northern Ibiza adds a touch of romanticism with an emphasis on Japanese symbolism.
Splashes of gold give the collection its Midas touch with strong digital prints and geometric star motifs. In the autumnal colour palette of powder rose and ocean steel blues, you find glimpses of antique gold in the branding, trims and stars. Base layers tempered against the damson and metallic hues complete the tone of this strong, feminine collection from Manuka Life.
Taking inspiration from the Asa No Ha star traditionally used in Japanese textiles and believed to bring good fortune to the wearer, the triangle denotes protection whilst an aggregate of triangles is said to enhance strength and beauty, an ethos that can only compliment yoga culture.
Encorporating seamless technology designed for movement and super-soft loungewear, the range includes must-have pieces include the Star Stirrup Legging and coordinating Double Layer Bra, engineered in seamless knit.
Creative Director of Manuka Life, Sarah MacDonnel, who modeled the collection, comments:
"We are proud to release The Midas Collection for Autumn / Winter ‘16, a collection designed to stand out. We have worked so hard to ensure our product is technically superior, comfortable but still is beautiful and trend-led for the winter season. We believe the shoot backdrop for this collection was perfect. The Northern Ibiza setting, beautiful shoot locations and spectacular sunsets really gave this collection that extra dimension. The calming and peaceful backdrop really did compliment the range perfectly. We look forward to seeing lots of lovely ladies enjoying and wearing our Manuka Life Midas Collection for the AW season"
