Olympic Athlete, Will Claye In FL2

FL2, a line of high-performance athletic wear for men from Fabletics, co-founded by Kate Hudson, will debut a new co-designed capsule collection with Olympic athlete Will Claye on July 1.

The FL2 by Will Claye capsule collection takes its inspiration from the Olympic Games, and mixes the urban, cool edge of Claye with the design aesthetic of FL2. Claye’s seven-piece collection consists of three outfits, and includes two convertible items that can go from warm-up to cool-down: a jacket with zip-off sleeves that transforms into a vest for warmer weather or to run errands in, and pants that convert into shorts for warm-up and training activities. The collection ranges in price from $34.95 for shorts to $69.95 for the convertible jacket.

“We are thrilled to work with Will and collaborate on our first-ever collection with a professional athlete,” said Shaun Kearney, vice president of design for Fabletics and FL2. “He perfectly embodies the FL2 brand – we admire his perseverance, grit and fashion sense, as well as his tendency to take risks – in his training and style. We are looking forward to watching Will compete this summer and to continue to inspire the next generation, on and off the field.”

Claye made his Olympic debut at the 2012 Summer Games in London, winning a silver medal in the triple jump and a bronze medal in the long jump, becoming the first man to earn medals in both events since 1936 and the first American since 1904. This year, he will compete in the 2016 Summer Games in Rio de Janeiro.
