The second drop of Mystic Motu, Roark’s Spring/Summer collection of adventure-ready clothing, bags, and accessories inspired by the atolls of Tahiti, releases online and at select specialty retailers on May 1st. Tailored by travel and designed for both the outdoors and everyday, Roark’s summer line features fresh technical wovens, a refresh of their beloved surf trunks, durable utility shorts, and premium seasonal tees, all featuring an array of graphics and prints inspired by the local flora and fauna, colors and characters that guided the Roark team through Tahiti.
Also of note this season is Roark’s functional activewear collection Run Amok, which is back with updates to its best-selling running shorts and active technical tops. Roark’s emerging women’s line, which features an expanded offering of stylish, purpose-driven women’s pieces including all-new hybrid rompers and shorts, rounds out the summer line-up.
Each season, Roark creates a considered collection of adventure-ready gear with styling details fit to accommodate needs from the trail to the bar. Inspiration comes from a chosen destination where their team explores and tests the product amongst a myriad of adventurous pursuits: surfing, climbing, running, skating and more. Durable quality and comfort is the guiding light.
Roark continues to utilize and expand upon sustainable fabrics and Fair Trade partners throughout the collection.
