As seen on the rapper Skepta, a tracksuit aficionado, the brand’s innovative work with tracksuits has perhaps given Cottweiler the most mainstream publicity. They’ve helped bring tracksuits back into the fold in contemporary fashion through choice tailoring and material selection, thereby elevating a classic piece of athleticwear into high-fashion. Aside from their tracksuits, however, the Cottweiler is known for their concept-driven collections, presentations, and shows—taking a narrow idea steeped in history and blowing it up into one cohesive vision for their clothing.


Cottweiler and Reebok first collaborated at Pitti Uomo in January 2017, coming up with quilted jackets, knitwear, athletic outerwear. They combined forces again spring/summer 2018, adding UV protective layers and packable features to their silhouettes. Their second collaboration included hoodies, track pants, t-shirts, ponchos, shorts, footwear, and accessories.


Founded by British designers Matthew Dainty and Ben Cottrell. The duo start gaining publicity through Tumblr, where they’d put together collections and post a handful of images onto the site. Like many other popular memes on Tumblr, the brand became known for embodying a specific aesthetic—a hyper futuristic, cold, almost dystopian style.
