Working from home can be a great excuse for prioritising comfort over style, but if you need all the motivation you can get right now, you’ve come to the right place.
You might think that street cred is overrated as you stretch and sweat in your living room, but these activewear collaborations have the ability to make you feel as good as you look, and that’s already half the battle won. Besides, it doesn’t hurt knowing your outfits were co-designed by some of fashion’s biggest names today.
If you’ve been struggling to stay ahead of your home workout schedule and need a little push, here are all the activewear collaborations to start sporting now.
Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez have built quite a reputation in womenswear, so what better way to put this knowledge of the female form to the test than by diving deep into the world of activewear.
This collection between G. Sport — Goop’s first foray into the design world — and Proenza Schouler is a limited edition drop that includes eight WFH-appropriate styles for women, which we foresee will also make their way to the hippest barre classes and brunch spots after this virus runs its course. Our favourites include the double-layer midi sports bra — an edgy take on the workout staple which features a ventilated mesh underhand — and the red bodysuit, which should work just as well with sweatpants for lazing at home with.
P.E. Nation might only have been formed in 2016, but the Australian-based activewear label has already earned itself the elusive “It factor” status a lot of brands struggle to achieve in such a short span of time.
If colour-blocking, large logos, and zipper detailing are your thing, then you’ll find its recent H&M collaboration a dream for your workout closet. The brand’s most iconic apparel and swimwear silhouettes have been transformed into more pocket-friendly versions, with bold colour schemes to brighten up that tough HIIT sesh — even if only a little bit. Our picks include the crop tops and the three-panel legging, the latter being one of P.E.’s first ever legging designs.
On the other end of the spectrum lies the VB x Reebok collaboration. Posh Spice continues to translate her signature minimalist aesthetic to a tee here, with pared-back workout gear in enough neutral shades to please anyone with a general loathing of bright colours.
In true VB style, expect to see plenty of easy, versatile staples that’ll fit right into your everyday ensemble. Cropped tank tops make a comeback this season, as do her seamless sports bra and tights. Hoodies and parkas are also a key component in this collection if you’re looking to sweat it out even further at home. After all, if we’re going to look like a mess, might as well try to channel Victoria while doing so.
You would’ve heard about this highly successful long-term collaboration by now. The English designer and sportswear label continues to hit the mark this season with sustainable initiatives and modern muted colours. The Ultraboost 20, for example is crafted in Primeblue ocean plastic yarn, which is woven from marine waste under the Parley for the Oceans programme.
The rest of the collection is seamlessly stylish and was designed with high performance in mind, while the oversized Printed Parka from her first ever collaboration returns in a recycled polyester and water repellent fabric.
Following the success of their first collaboration, the two powerhouses returned with a 17-piece collection in January, and it fuses the Serbian designer’s bold feminine aesthetic with classic designs from the Canadian activewear giant.
Rendered in colour-blocked shades of Hibiscus, Violet, Sienna, and Rich Midnight, the collection also incorporates unexpected details such as billowy sleeves and utilitarian cords, which double up as hanging straps to make storage a cinch.
The Nike x Off-White Training Collection is informed largely by the designer’s trademark visual language — think plenty of logos and graffiti-inspired graphics — in the same stark yellow and black colour palette from Abloh’s previous running collection.
