With worldwide gym memberships continuing to grow and fitness front of mind for more and more dedicated followers of fashion, looking good while you work out has become a priority.
The sentiment has only been highlighted more by the recent teasers of Matthew Williams‘ latest collaboration with Nike. The creative director of 1017 ALYX 9SM, Williams’ has emerged as one of the hottest designers of the moment, and his second collaboration with The Swoosh will be made up of functional, fashion-forward gym gear such as Nike Pro tops and tights.
And while we can’t deny our excitement for the collab, you don’t have to rock high fashion in the gym to look good. The term athleisure is thrown around a lot, but some brands are nailing workout gear that is both technically on-point and look the part.
From Kiko Kostadinov’s collaboration with sportswear brand ASICS, to utilitarian and workwear-infused pieces that work just as well in everyday ’fits from the likes of Arc’teryx Veilance and Nike — these pieces come with some serious fashion credibility without making you that guy who hits the squat-rack in head-to-toe Prada.
