Track star Allyson Felix may be gearing up for her final season before retirement, but she’s not slowing down. The 36-year-old world champion athlete recently celebrated a new campaign with luxury Swiss watch brand Omega at an event in West Hollywood, California, wearing a sleek black jumpsuit for the occasion.
Felix wore a sleek black sleeveless jumpsuit with pleated details at the waist and a straight pencil leg. For footwear, Felix wore a pair of black Gianvito Rossi d’Orsay pumps with sheer detailing. Felix, of course, wore a silver Omega watch on his wrist and a necklace of gold Olympic rings as a tribute to his 19-year career.
Felix is an 11-time Olympic medalist and the most decorated track and field athlete in world championship history. The 2022 season is the last for Felix before his retirement, with the athlete set to compete on a relay team for the 2022 World Championships in Eugene, Oregon in mid-July.
But Felix already has his next concert planned. In mid-June, Felix and his brother and business partner Wes Felix announced that their shoe brand Saysh had closed a Series A fundraising round that raised $8 million. As part of the funding, Gap Inc. acquired a stake in Saysh, with Athleta entering into a partnership to feature the shoe brand on Athleta.com.
Felix launched Saysh, a “by women, for women” footwear brand focused on community building, in June 2021 after parting ways with Nike due to frustration with the company’s policies for pregnant women and mothers in 2019, she said. She signed a partnership with Athleta the same year, began creating her own shoe brand after finding herself without adequate shoe options to perform at the Tokyo Olympics.
