FINDERS KEEPERS X FIT BY CLAIRE MORETON

Transcending the boundaries of fitness and fashion, Finders Keepers The Label is launching its own line of activewear – Finders Keepers X Fit.

I

nspired by Head Designer Kate Anderson’s love of exercise, the range boasts a selection of colourful graphic prints and classic, flattering cuts. “Exercise is such an important part of my daily routine and I know I’m not the only one!” says Kate.“I struggled to find exercise clothing that was both functional and fashionable. Finders Keepers is all about looking your best at all times, no matter what you’re doing.” The Adelaide-based label is already renowned for its innovative, versatile designs, and Kate felt a move into activewear was inevitable. “I always considered Finders Keepers to be as much about lifestyle as it is about fashion,” she says.“Finders Keepers X Fit is helping me realise that vision.”

Sporting prints from every Finders Keepers collection on quality activewear, Finders Keepers X Fit will include all the fitness essentials – crop tops, leggings, singlets and shorts – as well as bomber jackets, jumpers, and a range of accessories, such as towels, water bottles and yoga mats. The debut collection will feature the striking leopard print and floral tartan from Finders Keepers’ November range, ‘The Harvest’. Finders Keepers X Fit will be available to purchase via Shopbop, The Iconic and BNKR in November 2014. It will be released worldwide in January 2015. FINDERSKEEPERSTHELABEL.COM.AU
