When I heard the news that Stella McCartney was collaborating again with Adidas, but this time on a collection focused to younger women at an attainable price point, I was no doubt intrigued. Over the last decade McCartney has created such phenomenal high end/contemporary fitness collections that I have drooled over for seasons, but the price point is only affordable for a select few. In the last few years, fitness and exercise has become a lifestyle and not just something people do occasionally. With an influx of young women adapting to a healthy lifestyle, there has definitely been a need for apparel to match this hip and youthful demographic.
The first drop of the Adidas Stella Sport collection launched in February of this year, in case you missed it you can check out my post here. Just in time for spring, the second drop of the collection has hit stores and online. With bold colour blocking and the “Athlesiure” trend’s go-to fabric, neoprene, Stella Sport apparel combines performance wear with just the right amount of city street style.
I’ve been an athlete my entire life but for 15 years my focus was only in one sport – tennis! Over the last two years I’ve been exploring all different types of workouts in an effort to keep my body moving and to avoid boredom – running, boxing, dance, yoga, tai-chi, pilates. With so much of my time dedicated to fitness and working out, clothing that can hold up against my sweat, movement but still be super cute is the holy grail. My collection obsessions right now…the red neoprene varsity jacket is in heavy rotation and I can’t get enough of this season’s super flattering tights.
