Fila ● Bellini Cropped Velvet Half Zip

Welcome to the third installment of our week dedicated to Fila from women perspective. The Italian sportswear brand, thanks to the continuous support of Renzo Cognini took control of The Maxiemillion with much pleasure. How could it be any different, considering how crucial is Fila for hip hop culture and how it progressively evolved into urban apparel, leaving a mark that not many brands may claim.

During this week we first saw a hoodie with branded tape on sleeves called Tavore hoody, then it wast the turn of Rush Wmn sneakers and now I have a real eye candy in store for you.

Based on the color palette of the iconic F box logo this item has been designed with the goal to recreate an authentic retro vibe in each and every detail. It could have been fleece but in order to increase the retro feeling the choice of fabric fell on chenille, a much effective solution in this case.

This cut & sew item is giving justice to an era where sportswear meant wide fits and vivid color blocks, as if the only way to live was to have s a strong visual impact, like 90’s taught us. This is also the reason why the designer opted for a quite unusual half zip instead of the common track jacket, adding an element that contributes to the uniqueness of this design.

The disposition of color blocks is inspired more than ever, especially if you look at the sleeves and the back, making this pullover an ideal solution when you want to rock a pair of Women’s Fila sneakers properly.

The potential of this item is major if you consider how it could be used in a sport environment rather than in a urban context where expert fashionistas may create a mix and match outfit that will leave passers by speechless.

It is part of contemporary collection but think of it in a perspective where you can also wear it at night during Summer months, as a valid alternative to a light jacket. Wait no longer: Fila website is online and guess what? It has a special attention to women as you may have had a vapor after my posts…
