Last year Belgian Fashion brand Xandres contacted Camille Liebaert, leading lady of the hip athleisure brand Recto Verso in order to co-develop a limited edition sportswear collection for their clientele. Rooted in a highly respected tradition of fashion, driven by quality and created for the life women are leading today, Xandres collections offer sophisticated simplicity: dressy, smart casual fashion, refined but with an edge to it.
Not just any legging …
The fashionable leggings and sports tops focus on style and high-end quality. The products also have a positive effect on your legs and sports performance thanks to the innovative Emana technology embedded in the fabrics. Hello Killer Legs!
Camille Liebaert: “When Xandres asked me for this collaboration, I was very enthusiastic. Xandres is, just like Recto Verso, a Belgian brand. We are both proud of those Belgian roots, we put women first and we work hard on sustainability in all aspects of our brand and company. We have a lot in common. ”
Together with the Xandres design team, Recto Verso created a sports legging and T-shirt. “The leggings are one of the highlights in our collection,” explains Camille Liebaert. “The yarn contains a special technology that converts body heat into infrared rays. The substance stimulates blood flow and has a positive effect on the softness of the skin, on cellulite and on your sports performance and recovery. ” The original typo print that Xandres and Recto Verso developed together gives the leggings and the T-shirt a unique, hip touch. Cool mesh finishes the sports top.
100% made in Belgium
The limited edition sports outfit is made from A to Z in Belgium. Recto Verso is part of Liebaert Textiles, the family business that Camille’s great-great-grandfather started. The textile manufacturer has been focusing on Belgian production for 133 years. From wire to finished product: everything is done under one roof in Deinze. Innovation and sustainability are central to the production process. Water purification, solar panels, a recycling system for substances with a flaw,… Numerous initiatives are being taken to make the production process as sustainable as possible.
The Xandres team: “We are very proud of this sports outfit that is 100% made in Belgium. Sustainability is also very important to Xandres and the fact that we can go for a full Belgian production in collaboration with Liebaert in this Inspiring Women collaboration is a huge asset. ”
