This Canadian boutique sportswear brand takes you from running to runway in three different ranges, taking into account high performance and style at the same time. From its core range Titika Active Couture — pure activewear that you wouldn’t be ashamed of going to lunch meetings in; to its more lifestyle and fashion-influenced line Titika Black; to the must-have minimalistic basics in Titika Go To; every piece is functional and packed with breathable and flexible tech. For the colder season, we love the brand’s plays on mesh and dark prints in its graphic leggings.
