The Oasis Collection | High Fashion meets Activewear
Picture this: It’s dusk, there’s a warm summer breeze tickling your face and stirring through the trees. And all around you, as far as the eye can see, a silent symphony of colour is unfolding.
The sky hits the horizon line, and right there at the point of impact a vivid amber sunset blossoms out, morphing into amethyst and viridian blue, staining the sky and painting a tropical firework of hues onto the surface of shimmering blue waters below. The only thing that interrupts the infinite illuminated horizon is the silhouette of palm trees scattered all along the shore like earth’s eyelashes; reaching up towards the tropical sky above and swaying gently in the breeze.
The air tastes like salt, and smells of jasmine and palms. The sand looks like velvet, and you’re not thinking about anything other than the intoxicating beauty of this one perfect, golden moment. And as the sun sinks towards the ocean, you’re resonating with such pristine serenity you’re almost glowing.
...Now what if you bottled up the essence of that moment, distilled it and wove it into a print?
Then you took that print and applied it to eye-catching silhouettes with long, sculpted lines, statement zips and mesh detailing...
Welcome to the Oasis Collection.
In case you haven't yet browsed the complete collection of unique designs that comprise Oasis, let us introduce you to our latest summer release and this year's most stunning active-luxe addition. The Oasis Collection evokes all of the serenity and the splendour of summer, and interprets it into a contemporary high-end activewear edit that lets you capture the intangible opulence of a midsummer evening, and take it with you. Designed to inspire self-rejuvenation and tranquility (with an extra dose of confidence) the Collection sets itself apart from other designs with it's neoteric silhouettes and unique panel splicing. Oasis also features a colour palette of icy blues, crisp honeydews and sand-white hues, transforming hand-drawn palm leaf motifs into psychedelic, mirage-like visuals embedded in an ebony ocean - all of which sits on top of the softest, most luxurious canvas: our ProForm ultra compression fabric. The attention to detail extends beyond the print and onto striking angular panels, eye-catching cut outs, ultra-flattering silhouettes, and bold mesh detailing made from our exquisite sports mesh fabric.
With comfort at the forefront of every design, you're bound to find that outfit you just don't want to take off. Good news though! With a carefully selected variety of key pieces (each with their own statement design features) our designers have created a line that's ideal for mixing and matching in endless possible combinations. And with three different colour palettes to choose from (Oasis, black, or Sports mesh), you'll always be finding new combinations to show off and keep you covered for dance, yoga or a gym sesh all week long.
There's a reason why black never goes out of style and this outfit is exhibit A. The sophisticated high neck on our Ivy Crop and elongated cut makes it the perfect all-day active crop to let you get your sweat on AND make a fashion statement at the same time. Plus, when paired with the ultra flattering Bailey leggings with mesmerising angular Sports Mesh detailing and an ultra flattering high waist... this outfit is FIRE (but also, like, totally cool, too).
Rules are meant to be broken if you ask us, and whilst Oasis gives you the perfect fashion tools to experiment with, how you express your style and make the collection your own is 100% up to you. So if you're feelin' fearless like Portia, why not double up on the goodness with a layered Eve Crop in Black over the same crop in print for a killer outfit with contour and sass. Then team it with the Bailey Leggings in Oasis because head-to-toe print is everything this year - and also #YOLO.

Depart from the everyday with a look that's as trend-setting as it is sophisticated,
Start with an already flawless combo (the Ivy Crop, Lola Crop and Bailey Legging) and kick things up a notch by knotting your Lola Crop in the front to make a fitted cutaway top that perfectly compliments the Bailey legging's black-with-a-splash of print design. Lovers of all black ensembles and full print connoisseurs will be equally on point with the balance of colour and classic noir on display with this trifecta.
