Pivotte: Stylish, Technical Clothing for Women who Ride

ev-yy

We’re kind of crushing over the new designs from Pivotte that is launching on Kickstarter today. Pivotte was started by long time friends, Evelyn and Yehua, who were frustrated with wardrobes that didn’t meet their active lifestyles needs. The brooklyn based designers decided to create clothing that supports demanding schedules–where change in activities, environments, and roles might happen quickly and often like riding a bicycle.

Pivotte is 100% dedicated towards women’s performance wear. The collection is designed to withstand the rigors of work, play and travel through:

    • Advanced Fabrics: Provide unrestricted movement, complete comfort, and easy maintenance.
    • Technical Features: Stain, wrinkle and odor resistance, and moisture wicking.
    • Deliberate Details: The placement of seams increase range of motion and comfort.
    • Versatile Designs: Outfits can be dressed up or down.
