After looking around on the internet for similar solutions to the brief and looking for inspiration on high-end activewear shops I started sketching on my idea. I found my inspiration from the human body itself, where the muscles connect and all that, but also from already existing leggings and their trends.
I wanted the leggings to stand out from the usual runners leggings, so instead of using black or a more vibrant colorsheme I went with a more muted palette. The curves of the color patches actually follows the curves of the human body itself, and therefore gives the illusion of enhancement the muscles used for running, such as the calves etc.
The design itself was made in Illustrator, and then transferred onto a mockup in photoshop.
