Lija Spring 2011. Get on That Net Ladies.
The tennis net print is sublimated, created from a digitally enhanced photograph that is then fused to the garment using high heat rollers. The result is a print that does not crack or bleed. Subtle and on target.
Lija's Compression Jolt Tank and Enliven Skort, which will be out a little earlier (January), features a graphic that resembles the smoke from an extinguished candle (see below). I like that these pieces all have matching items in solids that pick up the colors in the design as I'm not one to overdo too much of a good thing.
The model above left wears the Fuse Mercury tank in indigo/onyx. There is a skort in the same color.
The fabrics are nylon/lycra, UV protective, wicking and cooling. Compression labeled garments provide a little extra body hugging support.
I'm looking forward to seeing these on court. Wonder if Lija sponsored athletes Rebecca Marino and Lilia Osterloh will choose them?
