Each Kydra collection shares a story. The Kydra Design Team draws inspiration from a myriad of resources to fuel our imagination. Art, music, fashion trends and even books set the mood and story of each collection. The colour palette comes into play to weave the story into a whole. From following the athflow trend to styles that matches our MBTI personality, you can expect each Kydra collection to be unique and fun in their own ways.The ideation then comes to life through sketches that communicate the story.
At Kydra, we understand how uncomfortable it gets working out with unsightly sweat stains and stinky workout gear in this humid tropical climate. Our apparel tackles precisely that so that you can perform your best in every workout. And that begins with the fabric chosen.
The touch and feel, stretchability, and weight are some critical factors considered for the best fabric catering to the various activities.
Take our popular Kyro fabric - cool to touch, smooth as skin and light as a feather. The Kyro fabric is versatile and perfect for everyday wear and yoga, infused with quick-cool technology for all-day comfort.
Revisions and edits are made on the prototypes for the perfect fit for you. Every detail has to be precise in the science of how clothes interact with our bodies. From the stitching to the cutting of the apparel, the Kydra Design Team work to bring the story of the collection to perfection.
Guide to Choosing the Right Top Regardless of Your Body Type
Tops that will fit you to a tee.
Now here's the fun part!
The samples set out to the “real world” for the ultimate test - the gym, the yoga studio, the tennis court and even the streets. Fit models will put the apparel through at least a month of wear and wash to ensure the final product is up to standards. Squats, yoga poses and even long-distance running won't bring the apparel down with the sweatiest of activities. These are the things we do to ensure we’re satisfied with the quality.
Changes will then be made based on feedback on the mobility and functionality of the design before we move forward with production.
