The Collection:

This visuals with this artistic collaboration are beautiful to look at.

The Mathis Short Sleeve is a supremely quality top. It’s functional enough to use as a running option- with it’s lightweight DriRelease and quick-drying construction. It’s also classic-looking that it is perfect for casual wear as well.

The Alta Shorts are a straightforward running short with a little bit of understated flare – especially with the style of this collab. Like many running shorts on the market, they provide a lot of nice, non-compressive stretch with it’s nylon construction and a water-resistant finish. There are slits on the side for more room and three pockets – a zipped middle and two smaller ones on either side – for small storage.

The following items are not a part of the Roark x Ciele Collection, but are perfect for the summertime.

The Bless Up Trail Shirt is a true gem in the realm of adventure apparel. I mean – look at that design!

What sets this shirt apart, really, is its versatility. Whether you’re hitting the trails, setting up camp, or simply exploring the city, this shirt fits the bill. The classic button-down design, with rubber buttons, adds a touch of sophistication to your outdoor ensemble. It’s a perfect option to take when travelling or camping as it doubles up your wardrobe without needing to pack excess items.

It’s not just a good looking shirt, but it is actually designed for hitting the trails. It’s super lightweight and durable and has the qualities we want in a running shirt. The moisture-wicking fabric is quick drying and is microperforated to enhance breathability.

The Layover Shorts are awesome for anyone seeking comfort and versatility in their adventure-ready wardrobe. These 19″ inseam shorts are the perfect companion for travel, outdoor excursions, or simply lounging around on a lazy summer day. The shorts are lightweight and are constructed from a breathable cotton and nylon blend that provide a comfortable fit that allows for unrestricted movement. This summer, whether you’re hiking, biking, or navigating through the airport for a runcation, these offer the freedom and flexibility you need.

The Roark x Ciele Collection, as well as all these items, is a must-have for all you urban explorers out there. It combines style, functionality, and a hint of adventure in one beautiful package. So, whether you’re strolling the city streets or conquering rugged terrains, don’t forget to top off your outfit with one of these bad boys. Trust me, your inner explorer will thank you.
