Let’s face it, you’re going to the gym to pump iron and get sweaty, so this is no time for the season’s latest designer sloganwear. But that’s no excuse for wearing the same old pizza-stained T-shirt and baggy joggers, either.
Investing the right clothes for the gym can not only help you stand out from the crowd, but it can also improve your workout by keeping you comfortable and allowing your body a greater range of motion.
For several years now, British brand Superdry has been taking over the world, one high street at a time, with its unique blend of vintage Americana-inspired designs and bold Japanese graphics, garnering support from some of the most stylish celebrities in the process.
However, not content with dominating the casual clothing arena, the brand recently turned its attention to the treadmill, and now produces some of the most stylish workout gear money can buy.
Superdry Sport takes the label’s bold approach and applies it to high-performance sportswear, resulting in active apparel for individuals who want to hit the track or squat rack in style.
Available at JD Sports, both in-store and online for AW17, Superdry Sport continues to blur the line between fashion and fitness, covering everything from workout basics to technical pieces, each finished with cutting-edge design details such as heat-welded trims, layered mesh weaves and compression fits.
Rendered in a masculine colour palette of metallic greys and blacks that can be easily mixed-and-matched – with hits of that iconic, signature orange – the latest drop is a finely-tuned collection for anyone looking to venture outside of the conventional sportswear bubble.
