This is the first university partnership for the apparel brand.
Earlier today, Oiselle announced that they will be the official apparel partner for the Yale Women’s Cross Country and Track and Field programs. This is the first collegiate partnership for the Seattle based women’s apparel company.
Oiselle already has ties to Yale. Kate Grace, professional runner for the brand, was a 2011 graduate. Sarah Lesko, an investor in the company, was also a Yale XC Captain and former school record holder.
“Sally and her team have worked hard to craft a look for our team that is modern yet still respects the history and tradition that Yale Track and Field and Cross Country embody,” said Coach David Shoehalter in a statement.
Founder and CEO Sally Bergesen added, “This was a chance to rethink what a collegiate kit could be and look to raise the bar. But the best part of course will be seeing the athletes in motion.”
Oiselle worked with the team to create a modern look while still capturing the timelessness of the Yale race kit. Take a look through the photos to see what their partnership will look like.
