GREENWOOD VILLAGE, Colo. – Jun. 20, 2011 - Pactimo, a leading provider of premium technical athletic apparel, has recently partnered with Portland, Oregon-based fine artist, designer, and illustrator Matthew Haggett to create fresh, dynamic, unique cycling apparel.
Each of Haggett’s limited-edition designs will be personally crafted and signed and featured in Pactimo’s online “Designer Gallery.” Showcasing one-of-a-kind cycling gear, the Designer Gallery is targeted to both men and women who strive to stand out from the crowd and proclaim their confident individuality. Haggett’s first designs are bold and stylish, incorporating a retro design reminiscent of the 1970’s.
Pactimo CEO Frank Kim said, “We’re extremely happy to be working with such talented artists who are producing great looking cycling apparel. Matthew’s sharp designs will continue our commitment to provide a break from the predictable offering of sublimated apparel.”
“Working with Pactimo has been great. I was so psyched when I saw the jersey samples,” Haggett said. “I was really trying to capture the history of cycling in my designs and think cyclists will like the bold colors and strength they convey.”
The Pactimo Designer Gallery highlights collaborations with artists across the globe, from a variety of genres.
