Fashion designers and activewear brands make quite the pretty pair. Both the Stella McCartney for Adidas and Victoria Beckham for Reebok collaborations have proven that a designer’s eye can add some extra flair to our leggings and sports bras—and we’re so here for it. Today, Lululemon gets in on the action with Lululemon x Roksanda, the first high-end collaboration for the brand. The collection combines the feminine aesthetic of Roksanda Ilinčić, a London-based Serbian designer, with Lululemon’s functional and technical features. There are pieces made for practicing yoga, training at the gym, running, and everyday life.
We all know you don’t have to actually work out in order to wear workout clothes, and companies have taken notice. Activewear brands are expanding beyond leggings and offering underwear, work attire, and beauty products in an effort to turn their brands into one-stop-shops. The 17 pieces in this collection contain a mix of activewear and streetwear: There are striped leggings and strappy sports bras for your next yoga class, and a voluminous sleeve jacket that you can pair with a satin elastic waist skirt for your next brunch date with your BFFs. The two-color combinations come in navy/black and violet/purple/yellow, and are very wearable and easy to mix with the rest of your wardrobe.
The prices range from $88 for a sports bra to $998 for a puffer coat, the hero piece of the line. And since Lululemon’s fans don’t let a big price tag hold them back, we’re betting this collection will be a big hit. The collection is available for a limited time on Lululemon.com and in select stores in North America, Europe, Asia, and Australia—and mark your calendar because the second capsule of this collection drops mid-January 2020, and will also be available for a limited time only. Meanwhile, here are five standout pieces we’ve already added to our shopping bags:
1 Lululemon x Roksanda Break New Ground Tight
The smooth, sweat-wicking fabric will keep you dry and comfortable during a run or a HIIT workout.
2 Lululemon x Roksanda Face Forward Duffel
This roomy bag will fit all your needs, whether you hit the gym before or after work. It has an interior sleeve for your laptop, adjustable straps, and fun reflective cords.
3 Lululemon x Roksanda Inner Expanse Infinity Coat
Appropriately named the “infinity coat,” this piece has four pieces of outerwear in one garment. Depending on the weather, remove layers to wear this as a coat, vest, puffer, or trench.
4 Lululemon x Roksanda Inner Expanse Bra
This light support sports bra is perfect for your yoga or barre classes. Pair with high-waisted leggings and a loose top to show off the double straps on the shoulders and back.
5 Lululemon x Roksanda Face Forward Skirt
Try wearing this flowy skirt layered over leggings or opaque black tights for an athleisure-inspired work outfit. Finish the look off with a fitted turtleneck or sweater and your favorite high-top sneakers or black heeled booties.
