To all the hypebaes out there, streetwear mecca Kith has returned with a brand new activewear collection for women after the success of its first last year: an incredible sleek line-up packed with asymmetric sports bras (that—bonus!—are equipped with removable straps for comfort and versatility), mesh-paneled leggings, and cool oversize graphic tees.
And everything—splashed across the front, lined down the sides—is treated to Kith’s branding, which feels right in line with today’s fixation with nostalgia and logos. The fact, too, that the collection plays with a mash-up of streetwear fabrics, like mesh, jersey, and spandex, while adding pops of color, further points to how much the line between streetwear and activewear has blurred.
But more importantly, the collection was crafted with high-performance, moisture-wicking materials to endure even the most rigorous, sweat-inducing of workouts—including CR girl Danielle Herrington’s cardio-heavy regimen of running and boxing. The model, who stars in the brand’s lookbook, gives the collection her cool-girl stamp of approval.
“I love that everything is so comfortable and can double as everyday clothes, without looking like you’re going to the gym,” Herrington exclusively tells CR, calling out the yellow sports bras as her favorite. “I feel fully supported when wearing it while still feeling cool—it’s also a little longer, so I can wear it as a crop top as well. And I love the color. I’m just more excited to work out, now that I have the coolest workout clothes!”
Herrington’s breakout moment was when she landed a spot in the Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue, and since then, the Compton-born 24-year-old beauty has walked in Philipp Plein’s show (her first-ever New York Fashion Week) and is heralded as a new type of model for redefining beauty standards. And now, Kith Women’s activewear collection marks her first partnership with the retailer.
“It was so fun working with Kith. First of all, it was an all female crew, which I thought was really cool,” Herrington says. “We shot in a dance studio and I love to dance, so I was really in my element!”
The Kith Women Activewear Collection will be available May 4, 2017 at all Kith locations and online.END
