It may be winter, but Year of Ours hit the beach earlier this month for Art Basel!
We packed up our sneakers and headed to Miami to launch a one-week-only, pop-up “Pro Shop” inside the sleek, activewear boutique, EightSpace. As part of Year of Ours’ first-ever collaboration with an artist, the team worked with contemporary creator Jessy Nite to design exclusive, ‘90s-esque and tennis-inspired hats, totes, tanks and hoodies. Featuring the striking colors and bold fonts Nite is known for, these YOS special edition pieces include a fittingly Florida color scheme of pinks and greens as well as a signature Pro Shop logo.
EightSpace was transformed into a type of vibrant, new-school country club where creativity and diversity reigned. Nite’s striking in-store designs were coupled with the visceral work of Ysa Pérez, a photographer known for capturing the glamour of real-life grit. A previous collaborator with YOS, Pérez provided larger-than-life photographs of Miami tennis courts to hang in the space and bring the pop-up to life.
Throughout #TeamYOS' time in Miami, we put our new line to the test with a morning, rooftop pilates class taught by model and trainer, Johanna Thompson. Held in the Wynwood district on the last day of Art Basel, Team YOS worked in a top-notch sweat session with friends from across the country as we soaked in the sunshine and beachfront views. Everyone who joined us received a YOS X Jessy Nite Collaboration Tote - a white, multipurpose carryall - that was packed with healthy snacks, beauty swag and YOS goodies.
All that exercise had us beggin’ for brunch, so YOS headed to a mid-morning feast with friends, hosted by Amrit. This superwoman DJ led us all us in a protein-packed feast and in-depth conversation about fitness, wellness and more! Although we’re back to life and the realities of winter, we’ve got the YOS X Jessy Nite Collaboration Hoodie to keep us warm. Available online and endlessly snuggly, this Pro Shop favorite features a roomy hood and a cut fit for the tennis court.
