Fab totally called it when she said that Gap was onto something. Besides an awesome Fall '10 line and a collaboration with Valentino, the clothing giant is making a serious attempt in the activewear market. I was a little blown over during a recent visit to the flagship store to see an entire room devoted to workout gear. Racks and shelves were filled with tanks, leggings, skorts, shorts, hoodies, and more, and people were going nuts over the stuff.
The new line, GapBodyFit, is a departure from Gap's previous attempt at activewear. If you ever owned any of it then you know what I'm talking about — more lounge than gym, its older offerings were easily mistakable for pajamas or what you'd wear to pick up the Sunday New York Times. The new line says, "We mean business" against activewear favorites like Nike, lululemon, or Lucy. Besides the wide variety, it's made with the athlete in mind: moisture-wicking materials reign supreme, all the garments have perfectly placed pockets, and it's as tight or as loose as the clothing should be depending on your workout. Beyond that, it's cute, stylish, and moderately priced. Tell me, will you be trading in your lululemons for a piece of the Gap?
Heidi Klum is proving that being a soccer mom is not on par with frumpy sweats and oversized t-shirts. And that her penchant for fashion is more than just critiquing the work of others on Project Runway; she's also a designer. Heidi teamed up with New Balance to design an activewear line of cottons and silks, which will include tunics, knits, woven tops, leggings, and outerwear pieces.
Heidi says the line was inspired by her own busy life as a working mother: "Whether we are dropping the kids off at school, going out with friends, running errands, running to meetings or swinging by your favorite coffee shop in the morning, we all have one thing in common — we want to be stylish, comfortable and hip!"
This isn't Heidi's first dip into the designer pool; she also launched a maternity line with A Pea in the Pod earlier this year. The Heidi Klum for New Balance line is designed with every body type in mind and will be sold exclusively on Amazon beginning Oct. 7 with prices ranging from $32 to $168.
Forever 21 always has the most lively look books. The latest one features its newest activewear — spunky sports bras, striped stretch pants, short shorts, zip-up jackets, you get the picture. While it's nearly impossible to work out in heels — accident waiting to happen! — it's fun to imagine a world where exercising looks so damn sexy. The best part is the collection starts at $3.80. Since Alexander Wang made sports bras popular off the gym premises, consider getting one to pair underneath everyday tanks and tees.
While most of us can't shred on the halfpipe like Olympic medalists Torah Bright and Gretchen Bleiler, we might as well look good trying! Both ladies have teamed up with major activewear brands — Torah with Roxy, Gretchen with Oakley — to design their own lines of stylish, functional outerwear. Check out both collections here and then tell us whose clothes you'd rather barrel down the mountain in.
