Solfire is preparing to release their Element Collection and they gave us a behind the scenes look at this season’s photo shoot.

Black Grey Story_026[1]Based in Brooklyn, New York, Solfire has a strong creative streak. They integrate vibrant colors and impactful imagery in their apparel. We always look forward to seeing their new collections. Their designs are called Art in Motion…and we agree.

Solfire will be introducing new items for both men and women that will take your style and performance to another level. The heather grey options and the Peak Skort are items to keep on your radar.

Watch for the Element Collection to arrive soon. It will be offered exclusively online at Tennis Warehouse.
