In "Dystopia", their newest activewear line for men and women, ES Collection imagines a post-apocalyptic world that is the direct result of today's extreme capitalism, consumerism, technological dependence and pollution. Designer Carmen Monforte draws inspiration from films like MadMax, Blade Runner and Waterworld, as well as books like Brave New World and 1984, presenting decadent garments that contradict convention.

"Dystopia is a futuristic collection that spotlights male and female survivors of a global catastrophe," she explains. "It was fun to create as traditional aesthetic patterns gave way to exciting new concepts and paradigms."

Quality, design, comfort and eco-conscience remain at the forefront of the new collection, however Monforte achieves "Dystopia" by incorporating contrasting thicknesses, styles, colors, and textures into each individual piece. Synthetic quilts and leathers are combined with fine fabrics such as thin polyamides or meshes. Gear intended for gym wear feature carabiners and ropes.

ES Collection was founded in 2006 in Barcelona, dedicated to the design, manufacture and retail of men’s swimwear. Months after its first opening, ES Collection expanded into men's underwear, sportswear, street wear and accessories. In 2016, ES Collection presented its first women’s collection.

The principles that govern the brand are an active awareness of conservation and a strong commitment to the improvement of work and human rights. ES Collection favors hand-made items and partners with regional suppliers to create local jobs that maximize efficiency and minimize distances. The brand has always defended and supported equality between individuals, positioning itself against all forms of racial, sexual, cultural and religious discrimination.

Innovation has been one of the pillars of the brand since its early days. ES Collection invented and patented several technologies including the pack-up in men’s swimwear, a foam cup which helps improve aesthetics by providing the front of the swimsuit with a better shape.
