The sports look and no shell suit in sight
Wondering how to carry off sportswear on the street without looking like an eighties throw back or a walking advert for a mainstream brand?
Well, I’m here to help. For a long time, ‘comfies’ were resigned to gym, indoor or Sunday-morning-paper-run only wear. But things have changed. Now there is Athleisure. But what is it, I hear you cry…read on my friends!
Relaxation of style
You probably know about it but just not by this name. Changes in our lives have meant that formalwear is no longer the norm: workwear is no longer necessarily a suit and tie for example. In fact, with more and more of us working from home, it is more likely to be shorts! Ever since those first celebrity collaborations like Adidas and Stan Smith or Nike and Michael Jordan, leisurewear has been acceptable off the court.
Function and style
So, an increasing amount has been invested in developing beautifully and intelligently designed leisurewear that is high quality, functional and stylish. Want high quality leisurewear that is durable and functional without compromising on style? Care about how and where your clothing was made? That’s the essence of the Athleisure trend. You’re in!
That’s the way to do it
I’ve found something very special for you. I’ve selected Xavier Athletica clothing for The Mantique’s customers because it really captures the Athleisure lifestyle for men. When you see the garments, you’ll understand what I loved about them; the thought that goes into the shaping of them and the little design details. Everything is designed and made locally “with a passion to deliver luxury athleisure and style for the discerning gentlemen”. And I know that means they will become an essential for your wardrobe and suitcase this summer.
When both Beckams have been signed to Adidas (Victoria being Mrs Fashion herself) and Kanye West taking his brand Yeezy onto the catwalk, this trend is definitely something to get on board with.
