Mission, a performance apparel and accessories brand that focuses on temperature control technologies, has teamed up with basketball player Dwyane Wade on a limited-edition capsule collection.
The tech-infused Mission x Wade collection has been designed by Wade and his team to provide an “elevated approach” to compression wear that merges on-court performance with off-court style.
"Compression wear has always lacked substance and style," said Wade. "For my first capsule collection with the brand, I wanted to blend Mission's high-performance technology with my personal style to create fresh and innovative designs.”
Mission’s founder and chief executive, Josh Shaw, added: "Our partnership with Dwyane has been an enjoyable one since the very beginning. He understands how the body works and the importance of apparel and accessories that help maintain an optimum temperature to enable peak performance.
"Dwyane is one of the best dressed men off the court. For his first collection, we wanted to marry our science with his unique style and offer the market something they've never seen before in the compression space."
The Mission x Wade Collection consists of seven pieces including compression tops, tights, and arm sleeves, and the entire collection features Mission's VaporActive, powered by 37.5 technology, which offers industry-leading drying rates, odour control and superior comfort.
The designs feature bold colours, geometric patterns and Wade's insignia, and a number of the pieces feature an exclusive reflective pattern that is revealed when hit only by a camera flash.
Commenting on the collection, Wade said: "I am excited to share my new collection, which meets the performance and style needs of athletes by making them feel and look their best. Style is how you express yourself and the collection, featuring reflective and non-reflective pieces, express my bold and creative approach to fashion."
