Paris-based running brand Satisfy and California’s icon of performance-eyewear Oakley have released the second installment of their first ongoing collaboration, available today 23 June 2023. Featuring a combination of technical apparel for trail running, mountain biking, and everyday wear, the highly stylized Satisfy x Oakley collaboration proves once again that the best outdoor gear balances form and function equally.
The limited edition first drop introduced the Satisfy x Oakley Re:SubZero sunglasses—a distinctly modern shield silhouette. For drop two, the two collaborators keyed into the current 90s fashion trend with a reimagined Eye Jacket ($214) and a proper collection of sport-ready apparel.
Included a MothTech tee ($125) featuring Oakley’s iconic “O” on the front, a belted running short system ($405) that draws inspiration from vintage Oakley mountain biking shorts, and a mineral-dyed Auralite waffle knit base layer ($205) with flatlock seams and stretch panels of Japanese DeltaPeak fabric. A very vibey PeaceShell running hat ($115) made for deflecting rays with a laser-cut backdrop that drapes down the neck tops it off.
“We both share a vision of altering perception and creative process,” said Brice Partouche, Satisfy's Founder and Creative Director. “This collab was all about channeling the energy around Oakley’s heritage and adding our layer of running performance through lightweight, premium materials and technical construction."
It’s no surprise that these two uniquely innovative companies have teamed up. Oakley has been on the cutting edge since founder Jim Jannard began operating out of his garage in 1975, changing the game with sport sunglasses that had protection and styling more reminiscent of goggles. Satisfy is newer to the apparel space, launching in 2015 with unapologetically stylish and novel running apparel, like a perforated moth-like organic cotton running tee that excels in hot weather but would fit right in on the streets of Soho.
The limited edition Satisfy x Oakley collab collection of eyewear and apparel is now available directly from both brands online and in select flagship stores worldwide. Instacopping is highly suggested as the first round sold out quick and it's safe to assume this drop won’t last long either.
Nevertheless, the throwback vibes are sure to live on.
