As a brand, Janji sets itself apart by making apparel for running that's "inspired by the places we run and the people we meet." To kick off its Artist Series, Janji worked with Bolivian graphic artist Claudia Gorena to create pieces that are decorated with fun, quirky, colorful faces. Gorena described her work as a representation of "las caras de carrera," or "the faces of the race," some of which are joyous, others silly and some exhausted.
The Caras de Carrera kit from Janji's new Fall/Winter 2018 collection intentionally sets itself apart from many activewear styles that are popular in North America. As Janji co-founder David Spandorfer describes, "A lot of the activewear apparel on the market looks very similar. But when you step outside the Western world, you see a lot of really cool designs and patterns, which we wanted to integrate in each line."
