People often ask me: What does the word “athleisure” even mean? My response: It’s when your sports bra/tank top/hoodie is so freaking cute, you can easily wear it to the gym and then out to brunch. And that’s definitely the case with the new Prabal Gurung Sport collection. Prabal Gurung made his name dressing celebrities like Laverne Cox and Diane Kruger on the red carpet. He also had a super affordable collaboration with Target back in 2013. But now, he’s extending his brand into sportswear with a 12-piece collection available exclusively at Bandier.
“The Prabal Gurung Sport woman is an extension of the woman we design for today,” he said in a statement for Bandier. “She is the Prabal Gurung woman off-duty, in her leisure time when she isn’t working the boardroom or red carpet.” And even though the collection is made with performance fabrics instead of silk, it’s still got all the high-fashion elements Prabal Gurung is known for. There are bright pops of color and eye-catching patterns in the mix of jackets, tees, and leggings.
