“I think the pandemic has pushed me to be freer and to approach my show differently; it’s given me the guts to do that and perhaps be a little more nonconformist,” said Ilincic. “Also we have been so deprived of theatre and performance of any kind, so I wanted to do something special.”

“Growing up in Serbia, I cherish personal memories of how much we all loved FILA pieces coming from  Italy – says Roksanda – This collection allowed me to give a new point of view on such a beloved heritage:  one that merges my shapes and colors with a sense of performance and the outdoors. The soft, enveloping  message is perfectly timely, I believe”.

ROKSANDA x FILA is the encounter between two very different identities to speak to todays streetwear lovers like us. ROKSANDA’s blown-up, dramatic shapes, and vibrant colors meet the technicality  and straightforwardness of FILA. Women love streetwear with an artistic sense of feminine empowerment. And ROKSANDA nailed it with sportswear luxe by working around her very own themes of shelter and  protection, which she brought into the outdoors, inline with the elements, active in the FILA  ethos.

The collection revolves around humongous duvets that wrap the body allowing the wearer to seek  refuge into their volumes, mixed with leisurewear inspired by parachutes incorporating FILA technical and  high-performance fabrics. A selection of leggings, t-shirts, sports bras, and jackets grounds the offer, which  is completed with padded bags and oversized moon boots. The dialogue between the respective identities  carries over in the color palette: an idiosyncratic mix of the tropic, porcelain, black, and fluoro orange with  notes of chalk, champagne, butter, pearl, taupe, and fluoro pink.
