Luna Rossa Challenger Kit

The Woolmark Company and Prada have created a natural, eco-friendly kit to take on the seas. The revolutionary wool-based uniform designed for the Luna Rossa Challenger Team signals the emergence of a new breed of natural performance sailing wear. The first of its kind, the natural kit was designed to outperform its manmade rivals while mitigating the environmental impact of its activity.

Fit for Winners

The innovative wool kit that Prada and Woolmark have teamed up to create has taken the Luna Rossa through to the final of the America's Cup — the world's premier sailing competition.

Ideal for Sailing

Utilizing Merino wool, these garments enhance performance while also reducing environmental impact. Plus, superb breathability, the ability to wick away moisture and superior thermoregulation make the natural fiber ideal for sailing.

Made with the Environment in Mind

In a bid to protect the world's oceans, the team has swapped its uniform made with synthetic fibers. With up to 35 percent of microplastics in the ocean coming from synthetic clothing, wool is a key solution to reducing environmental damage.

You can now own the Luna Rossa Prada Pirelli Official Sailing Team Uniform.
