You don’t have to actually own an exotic McLaren sports car to look like you do, provided that you start outfitting yourself in the new line of premium McLaren Automotive sportswear being produced by Castore. 

“Taking inspiration directly from McLaren’s modern design language and use of lightweight materials to improve performance, the limited-edition Castore collection offers exceptional style and comfort,” the partners said in their announcement.

High performance meets design precision in McLaren and Castore’s debut collaboration with core training and lifestyle pieces including cotton t-shirts, performance tops and outerwear. Bonded seams, a sonic welded construction and heat transferred interior components keep garments highly streamlined and near-weightless for optimal comfort and performance.

“The collection also embraces smooth sloping curves and hexagonal grid formations, while creating a streamlined and flattering silhouette with an understated yet distinctive aesthetic. Each piece is ergonomically cut for ease of movement and comfort, and offers superior wicking, odor-resistance, four-way stretch and a unique mesh construction which increases airflow, cooling and ventilation.”

Among the features is thermo regulation using Coldblack technology that “reduces heat build-up… while protecting you from the sun’s rays.”

In our own respective fields, McLaren Automotive and Castore are both pioneers who take on established players by pushing the boundaries of design and technology, so it makes sense to come together and collaborate on this exclusive collection,” McLaren chief executive Mike Flewitt is quoted.

“We see long-term value in extending our brand to a wider audience beyond those who buy and drive our supercars while, at the same time, always being mindful to maintain our aspirational brand values in everything we do. In doing so, we build on our high brand standards and luxury positioning while collaborating to bring something unique to the product category and wearer.”

The Castore and McLaren collection is available at Castore stores. For details, including pricing and ordering information, see the Castore website.
