Disclaimer: I am a member of the Janji Corps Ambassador program, which means I get to tell you all the awesome stuff that Janji is doing. While there are benefits from being an ambassador including a discount, I do purchase the clothing myself and all opinions and words are of course my own.
So we’re right in the middle of Janji launching their Spring/Summer collection (check it out every Wednesday US time) and I have been rocking a couple of the pieces for a couple of weeks now. The collection is once again amazing, and of course the purchase of an item of clothing helps provide water in much needed areas.
I’m going to give you the hot tips on what some of my favourite things from the new collection are:
Janji Women’s Laguna Tee
As soon as Janji released the look book with the Women’s Laguna Tee I knew that I had to have it. It’s a step away from the usual running tees and tanks, with a crossover back and breezy design, making this top a great idea for when the weather is warm.
This is definitely a running/casual top, not something that you’d wear for formal occasions (or work, unless you worked in an awesomely cool place) – since the back is extremely open.
Once again, the top is made of Janji’s secret soft stuff, 65% polyester/35% rayon – making it feel incredibly amazing amongst your skin; you’ll never want to take it off. The design is a cool blue/green pattern, which Janji says is inspired by the cool lakeside vibes in San Marcos La Laguna, Guatemala. As with Janji’s whole premise – purchasing this shirt gives a year of clean water to a person in Guatemala, so it’s a win/win!
I’m absolutely loving this top and wear it as much as I can. I’ve ran in it, worn it casually and climbed in it.
Women’s Asana Zona Capris
Following on from the highly successful capris from last season, the new Spring/Summer capris are on point! The Asana Zona Capris are navy, with a Guatemalan geometric design which is inspired by the sprawling street art of Zona Cuatro in Guatemala City.
These pants are incredibly comfortable to run in, and live your general day to day. They’re not too tight at the top at all (I actually went down a size than the pair I had last year) and have a great fit around the calf – definitely not too tight for those whose calves are on the bigger side.
The pattern doesn’t stretch at all when on, and there is no sheerness. There is a pocket at the back with is big enough to hold keys, or gels, when out on the road. The pants are made of 88% polyester / 12% spandex and as per usual the purchase of these pants mean that you’re helping provide water in Guatemala.
Women’s Balam shorts
Janji have certainly improved on their shorts from last year!!! I love the new sizing for this season, the Women’s Balam shorts fit all round amazingly and barely move when I’m running. I’m seriously thinking about buying a few more of these to last me through to the end of the year – especially thinking ahead to the Honolulu Marathon!
The material is Body: 97% polyester with 3% spandex for just the right amount of stretch and are amazingly soft for running shorts. They’ve taken what has been successful in making the shirts incredibly soft in 2015, and somehow put that into the shorts. Additionally they have a unique point of difference, the design was done in collaboration with Guatemala-based designer Jorge Letona and uses an ancient Mayan scripture that spells out “Run For Another”.
Janji is definitely a brand to follow, they’ve had a successful pop-up shop in Newbury Street in Boston over the past couple of months (following on from the end of 2015) and are constantly raising the bar with the regards to both running gear and social awareness. The run for another concept is one to be celebrated, we all need running gear – so why not make sure someone else’s life is improved in the process?
