What's In The New Balance x J.Crew Collection? Here's What You Can Expect — PHOTOS
Attention, athleisure junkies: All of your fitness fashion dreams are officially coming true — J. Crew is launching an activewear line. (See ya later, paycheck.) J. Crew x New Balance, which was announced on Wednesday, will be a full line of workout gear with sneakers, pants, shorts, sports bras, tanks, short, and long-sleeved tops, jackets and pullovers — literally everything you could possibly need to fill your gym bag (which, by the way, J. Crew also sells).
“This collection was a natural extension of our New Balance collaboration which we’ve have been doing for years. To me it uses a palette of J.Crew color and classic sensibility with New Balance know how and expertise,” Head of J.Crew Women's Design Somsack Sikhounmuong said in a statement.
The collaboration is full of bright colors, interesting prints and, most importantly, comfortable, techy fabrics that you'll want to wear everywhere from yoga to spinning to your morning (coffee) run. Prices range from $15 to $200, so you'll be able to get your hands on a piece from the collection without having to totally break the bank. The full collection will be shoppable online and in select J. Crew Stores on Oct. 11.
As if the awesome clothes weren't enough to make the collection freaking amazing, J. Crew is following in its fashion week footsteps and using real women to model the line in their ad campaign. Some of the inspiring women featured include: Taryn Tomey, the founder of The Class; Taye Johnson, a SoulCycle Instructor; Rachael Wang, the fashion director at Allure Magazine, and Gracie Carvalho, the Muy Thai boxer you might recognize from the viral #Ladylike H&M campaign from September.
Between the variety of styles, affordable prices and incredible women featured in the campaign, it's clear that the J. Crew x New Balance collaboration will have something for everyone.
Oct.11 can't get here soon enough!
