Zeenya introduced their first pair of specialised running leggings back in 2017 and have since established a cult-like following amongst New Zealand’s walking and running communities.
Zeenya’s sport range has more seams to ensure elite function and a perfect fit that comes with the demands of increased movement, and specially placed pockets so you can take your phone, cards and keys with you.
The range features waistbands in compression fabric that sit high around the waist, a diamond gusset, flat stitching and incredibly soft fabric that moves with you, maximising comfort and will stretch to fit your shape. The unique material retains its original fit and shape and is 80UV protectant, antibacterial, odour minimising, thermal control and quick drying.
Each pair is mindfully made in Brazil and is available in running shorts ($94.90), running capri ($124.90) and running 7/8 length leggings ($134.90), as well as their unique sports skirt option ($94.90) with built in undershorts that is perfect for your next game of golf, tennis or squash.
Zeenya’s newest collection to join the Sport Range is THRIVE! Boasting five energetic prints to choose from, your next run is going to be infused with pure technicolour joy!
When describing her inspiration for the latest sport range collection, founder Chloe Wickman says, “I want to encourage everyone to be our best versions of ourselves, and most importantly as women we get to decide what that is for us. It’s about honing in on what lights us up, moving forward into imagining our best possible lives and taking the brave steps to make it happen.”
Introducing Zeenya’s Thrive Sport Range:
Ostentar (Flaunt) is a joyful print of orange, pinks and greens that will have you vibing like the Spice Girls’ 90s pop anthem “Swing it. Shake it. Move it. Make it.” with a reminder that there’s nothing more beautiful than accepting who you are.
Irradiar (Radiate) will light up your running ensemble and have you feeling o so good moving in vibrant style. And Oceano (Ocean), chosen by Zeenya’s inspiring ambassadors, is your happy place.
It’s the first time Chloe has engaged the brands ambassador community to pick their own print for a collection, saying “it’s exciting to get our ambassadors involved in this way, as they represent many of the women who will be owning the pieces while owning their sport”. Oceano is the one that feels like home. When you shimmy your bod into her you feel centred, calm and connected, and when you feel like that, you know anything is possible!
Fourth design Erguer (Rise Up) is the print we imagine ourselves in when seeking the courage to try something new. Lastly; Revigorar (Invigorate) was named by the Zeenya online community with an inspiring multi-coloured design, and is the energising lift you need to start reaching for those exercise goals.
Zeenya has partnered with their Brazil-based supplier for the past seven years, honing and perfecting their sport range offering. Female-led, the team of talented seamstresses are all about empowering themselves through moving their bodies, mastering their skills and working to achieve their dreams.
It’s the perfect alignment says Chloe, “I love working with Camila and her team in Brazil, they’re dedicated to creating products of a high standard and we‘re both constantly working on improving what we do. She’s been very influential and supportive of any new product idea and loves seeing the sport range on Kiwi women.”
