C9 – Holiday Sneak Peek!

Late last week the Active Team had a special invite to check out the upcoming Holiday 2013 launch that will hit stores come early November for C9 by Champion — the ongoing collaboration between the iconic active brand Champion and Target. (Which is exclusively sold at Target!) We’ve been following what C9 has been doing over the past few years and couldn’t be more stoked on its wide range of apparel that can be worn for a bevy of different sporting activities. From golf and tennis to the gym, running and studio, C9 is truly capturing what is happening in the world of Activewear right now!

The interactive showroom had models wearing the gear, but they weren’t just fashion models…yet Active models, living, working out and showcasing how the gear is truly intended for in various practicing scenarios.



One of our favorite aspects of the collection are the variety of sport bras available from the brand. Right on the trend, the range features a wide and diverse style spectrum with everything from delicate cami-like straps and print selections of tie-dye motifs to a killer color palette of active brights to more subdued tints of cranberry, basic black with neon accents and cool selections of grey.


With so many great pieces, we certainly can’t wait to see what’s more to come for Spring/Summer 2014!
