Trend Tracker: Athleisure


As the latest Karl Lagerfeld athleisure collection shows, this trend is only getting hotter.

2021 is the year of athleisure reinvented. While the term has been on the fashion radar for a while now and hugely popularised during 2020 when working from home and loungewear-all-the-time became the norm, our 2021 athleisure uniform has upped its game. And the results are gold medal worthy! Cue the brand new K/Athleisure collection from Karl Lagerfeld at McArthurGlen. Sporty and chic, it combines supple lines with soft fabrics and ultra-flattering silhouettes. It’s shaping up to be a very comfortable season...

Let’s hear it for the boys
When it comes to combining practicality with a must-have aesthetic, K/Athleisure have taken a back to basics approach that puts easy-to-wear pieces at the heart of your wardrobe. Think simple zip up jackets with logo detailing, muted geometric print cotton shirts, classic cotton tees in this season’s key colourways (baby blue and black plus monochrome, of course) and blouson jackets in a neutral palette for a dose of nonchalant cool.

Let’s hear it for the girls

Sleek, elegant and undeniably cool - K/Athleisure is a functional yet fashionable collection with a fresh new street-style attitude. Logo bra tops and slim-fitting, shape-flattering track pants give a modern silhouette with retro accents. Ideal for working out, WFH or just workin’ it.

Pair the monochrome, logo fitted mini dress (think serious off-duty 90s supermodel vibes) with the K/Athleisure motif bucket hat and some white low-tech plimsolls for a youthful reinterpretation of the trend.
