Movement is self-expression, so it’s only fitting to wear something as loud and bold as you are while crushing a workout at the gym or sprinting the last mile of a marathon. Enter Eagle Rock Werkshop, a new fitness brand producing performance pants for men and women with a kick.
The brainchild of Los Angeles-based designer and yogi Chriztina Marie, Eagle Rock Werkshop’s line of yoga tights are pieces of art. While most fitness companies stick to single color schemes, simple geometric patterns, or small ornamental designs, Marie screens full-scale sketches, renderings, and photographs over her leggings. Often nature-themed, the New Zealand version (pictured far left), was created from an iPhone photo she took while exploring the country.
But this art is made to be used—the tights are performance wear first, bringing real-world utility to a workout. Chlorine- and UV-resistant, quick to dry, and made of a stretchy-but-tough flatlock Lycra knit tight enough to resist piling, adventurers can confidently wear them from the mat to the track to the ocean. Compression technology supports you through running, yoga, surfing, biking, and even CrossFit.
Eagle Rock Werkshop is a boutique company—the pants are made in small batches through a closely-knit supply chain. Thirty-one prints are available now, with many more outdoor-inspired prints in the works (Marie just started designing a series inspired by the desert landscapes of Sedona, Arizona).
