Cornelia | Women's Shorts

Cornelia* is the first Spiridon technical shorts (unique creation of 100 copies for this first series). It is part of our new Anthology collection which weaves the link between the history of Spiridon and our vision of technical outdoor creation.

100% Made in Europe (from the origin of the yarn to the confection, including the knitting).

Designed in part with ecological Italian fiber Q-Nova ® (recycled polyamide), the Cornelia shorts stand out for their durable material and vintage look.

To achieve it, we developed a specific technical material in Spain (Barcelona), which explains its 12 months of development. It is resistant , breathable , top premium quality and optimizes moisture transfer . It is also distinguished by its style with its "piqué-checkered" knitting . This super pleasant, supple and light material (150 g for size M shorts) has a dry but "pounced" feel which almost gives it a rare and innovative "cottony" appearance. The result: a unique, ecological and stylish Spiridon silhouette!

Cornelia pairs perfectly with the Summit tank top, the Anthology t-shirt and the Salvan long sleeve .

Collection identity

On the left thigh, the “Road Runner” bird , designed in 1973 by Karel Matejovsky as a nod to Fred Lebow's New York Road Runners Club. At the top, a broken line , like an exit from the track to broaden horizons beyond the racing corridors and the sole objective of performance. A step aside, in the spirit of Spiridon, to reclaim nature and enjoy the unique feeling of freedom that running provides.

Cornelia* , in tribute to Cornelia Bürki, the first middle-distance athlete to wear Spiridon during official meetings: a way of showing her adherence to Spiridon's values ​​to include women in our sport. Elected sportswoman of the year in 1978, she still holds the Swiss record for the 2,000 meters in 5 min 35s.
