ISKO have taken the very best of ISKO Arquas™ 6.0 – a powerful technology that marks a new era of athleisure – to create a timeless lifestyle outfit with their partner and industry leader, arena.
Partnering with arena
arena was created in 1973 by sports visionary Horst Dassler, son of Adidas founder Adolf “Adi” Dassler. Now, arena is changing the game of the aquatic performance-wear space, providing athletes and champions with the latest technology in swimwear. arena Icons is their dedicated lifestyle collection, inspired by vintage designs from the brand.
“Denim represents the most iconic expression of freedom in clothing and therefore the adoption of this material has been a natural choice. ISKO is one of the leading denim manufacturers, not only from a creative and technological standpoint, but also because of their strong commitment in a more sustainable industry, therefore, to partner with them has been an even more natural choice.” – Roberto Tiburzi, arena Product Category Manager
Coming Together Through Shared Values
Born from our shared values of passion, innovation and a proven commitment to sustainability, we have joined forces to enrich the SS21 arena Icons collection with a unique outfit that embodies everything the project stands for.
“This collection is a testament to the importance of remaining authentic while keeping up with innovation. At ISKO, we proudly stand for this and find the very same commitment in arena. This is why we joined forces, rethinking the past to define a better future with a brand that shares our goals and values and works to promote a better industry and a better future for everyone.”
– Elena Faleschini, ISKO Global Field Marketing Manager
With its bold and vibrant colours, polished yet oversized silhouettes and permed hair, the 80’s was one of the most eclectic decades in fashion history. Inspired by arena designs from the 80’s, our lifestyle outfit features a vintage aesthetic with a modern fit, achieving a look that transcends time.
