2019 is the year of moody flowers. Of tenacious beauty. Of showing the true complexity of women… of petals, yes, but also of thorns.
The florals are in, just add power. We were thrilled to pre-launch the new June Bloom Collection ON THE TRACK at Portland Track Festival this past weekend. It’s part of our dream: to see a complete transformation of fashion to the fierce beauty of function… to strength and muscle and grace and the humble offering of one’s abilities to the window of opportunity.
THE STYLES. All made with our beloved Plya Interlock fabric, known for being lightweight but highly compressive.
The June Bloom Collection is made in the USA.
- June Bloom Racerback Bra. We updated our Spandos Bra with this design, elongating the bra and increasing the width/strength of the chest band. Wear testers report a super-supportive fit, appropriate for high-impact up to a C cup, or medium- to low-impact for D+
- June Bloom Mini Shorts. Same as our Spandos Minis, these shorts are compressive and spicy fast.
- June Bloom Shorts. Go long with a longer inseam!
- June Bloom Capris. This design is the same as our popular Spandos Capris
THE ATHLETES. I highly recommend you follow these incredible athletes. Each one has their own unique story, and all are posed to do big things this season!
June Bloom in the steeple. Megan Rolland and Alexina Wilson opened their steeple seasons with a splash! (get it?) Alexina snuck under the USA standard in 9:49 - her fastest opener ever! And consummate veteran Megan Rolland shone in her first race in front of her three babies (wearing their adorable little ear protectors), running a solid 9:58 to start her season.
June Bloom running the 1500m. Rebecca Mehra (aka Long Legs Mehra) keeps improving in every race. She cruised to a solid 4:12.65...that sub-4:10 is coming!
June Bloom in the 800m. Kendra Chambers flew from the City of Love to the City of Roses for the 800m. Unfortunately a nagging injury got in the way of her racing, but she'll be back crushing on the track soon!
June Bloom in the 10k. OTQ marathoner Jocelyn Todd went for the "short and spicy" track 10k, and June Bloom'ed to a track PR of 34:24
And June Bloom representing Portland in a cross-state rivalry. We're a Seattle company, but when Lyndy Davis and Theresa Hailey are running for Portland we have to change teams for the day. They rocked their Kara tanks to 2nd and 3rd overall and helped propel team PDX to victory. Axe hoisting included!
2019. Stop and smell the roses -- or wear them, and keep flying.
