McLaren Automotive revealed its summer capsule collection with Castore. This is the second collection released by the British premium sportswear brand in collaboration with the luxury supercar company and follows the recent announcement that from next year Castore will be producing the team kit for the McLaren Racing Formula 1 team.
On the heels of a successful Fall/Winter collection in 2020, the collaboration between the two performance brands introduces a new line of technical clothing. Drawing inspiration from the design and engineering of McLaren Automotive supercars, the new summer 2021 collection uses lightweight, technically superior performance fabrics and manufacturing techniques to create a luxurious range that offers exceptional performance properties for the wearer. Every piece in the collection has been precisely engineered using quality, high-stretch fabrics for a full range of motion, with a sharp, automotive-inspired cut that adapts to any occasion.
The collection includes the McLaren Performance Jacket. Inspired by McLaren lightweighting technologies, the jacket is light and water-resistant. It is constructed from a breathable, high-stretch performance fabric with a matte bonded finish. The McLaren Performance ¼ zip is made from a four-way stretch fabric for maximum mobility with a tailored neck and shoulders and a slim athletic cut. The performance fabric is water-resistant, insulating, thermoregulating, and UV protection. A brushed interior delivers comfort and warmth.
Just like McLaren’s aerodynamic design, the Superlight Vest and t-shirt controls airflow to maintain maximum performance. Made from a high-stretch aerated mesh, both garments have laser-cut eyelets to enhance ventilation and breathability. The McLaren Performance shorts are high-stretch and cut with side seam splits to eliminate any possible restriction of movement. They include a haptic elasticated waistband and hidden drawcords for a precise fit and concealed-zip side pockets for added convenience. The McLaren Performance Trouser uses bonding technology to remove any risk of chafing, utilizing a high-stretch fabric for maximum ease of movement and comfort in the driving seat.
The Castore Garcia hoodie has been modified by the McLaren Automotive design team to produce the ultimate McLaren Performance Hoody. It is a waterproof, windproof, lightweight piece that delivers on comfort and performance.
The collection is available to purchase now in Harrods’ Knightsbridge store, Castore stores, and online.
