A quick look at Solfire will tell you that they’re not your average athletic apparel company. The designs bring art into motion for the athlete. Each piece is designed in Brooklyn to unite function, fashion and art.
The newest line is called the Element Collection. The designers were inspired to take a look at things in our world from a different angle. The Flame Molecule art is a reinterpretation of the molecules of the human body and recurring geometries in the natural world, and the Wingblast design will let you soar — like an eagle’s wings.
There was much thought into the color palette as well. To match the feel of the crisp feel of a winter day, Solfire chose a palette of greys, purples and blues with energizing “punch” of lime.
Today, the playtesters are picking our favorite pro outfits of the year. In no particular order, here are our favorites from the WTA (in case you missed it, we picked our favorite men’s outfits, too):

Karly: ”Ana Ivanovic, Australian Open (adidas Spring adizero Dress). Not only were the colors great and really popped, but my favorite was mesh backing and striping that made this dress better than the rest. It’s all about the attention to details that made this outfit a hit!
Andy also chose the same dress: “Ivanovic is always looking good, but these colors contrasted well with the Rod Laver Arena court, helping her take down the No. 1 seed, Serena Williams.”

Chris: ”Best pro outfit ATP Tie: Nicolas Almagro and Potito Starace as they wore almost identical Lotto apparel at the Montecarlo Rolex Masters. Classic and clean looking white crew with light blue accents paired with a light blue short. This outfit popped against the clay court backdrop yet looked classy and sporty.”
