Sport clothing giant Under Armour has released its first collection of apparel made in the U.S. and out of UA Lighthouse, the Brand’s state-of-the-art innovation center for design and manufacturing in Baltimore.
This first collection is a women’s sports bra and legging set, called Arris Project, and features an innovative material that cuts dry time in half. The collection also features distraction-free bonding in fashion-forward designs that flatter and support. The initial run of 2,000 units, priced at $120 for the legging and $50 for the bra, are available for purchase starting today on UA.com/arris-collection.
The UA Lighthouse, which opened in June 2016, is a 35,000 square-foot facility located in South Baltimore’s City Garage and is a model for the future of how footwear and apparel will be imagined and crafted, with both design and manufacturing under the same roof. The facility serves as a foundation for Under Armour’s local-for-local vision, where product is to be designed for and made in local markets around the world. Through Under Armour’s strategic partnerships at Lighthouse with leaders in design, machinery, and manufacturing, the brand is pioneering the future of how its world-class products are produced, with the goal to exponentially increase Under Armour’s U.S. manufacturing output year over year.
