A Touch Of Casual Luxury: The Fila Terrinda Velour Track Top

The highly anticipated Fila Terrinda Velour track top makes a return to 80s Casual Classics in OG navy for a premium spin on the early 80s sportswear icon.

The Fila Terrinda Velour track top is a testament to casual fashion of the early 80s. It was all about the premium price tag, premium fabrics & the elitist appeal that every top boy wanted a piece of. Fila’s White Line range from the legendary Italian designer, Pier Luigi Rolando, wasn’t just about designing sportswear, it was about revolutionising tennis apparel with modern style & elitist appeal. As far as Fila’s history goes, the White Line is (and probably always will be) some of the greatest stuff the Biella born brand has ever released. Originally released in 1982 at the pinnacle of casual sportswear the Fila Terrinda Mk3 took 80s Italian styling to the max with a luxurious velour fabric and biker jacket style inspiration. With its hefty price tag the Terrinda became one of the most sought after Fila styles of the era among the casual elite.

The elitist tennis appeal and the fact the Swedish tennis legend, Björn Borg, also endorsed the Terrinda towards the back end of his career created a casual connection like noting else. Nick Love’s cult classic ‘The Business’ from 2005 also introduced a new generation to the flamboyant Fila styles of the era. Styles like the Terrinda were brought back to life thanks to Love’s theatrical take on the 80s sportswear era which highlighted the elitist appeal of the brand. The Fila Terrinda Velour track top famously featured in one of the scenes where Charlie who is played by Tamer Hassan is waiting for a drugs drop. The iconic 80s look is finished off in true London gangster style with gold aviators & a larger than life gold Rolex watch.
