Ok, athleisure as a concept is not dead but the handy word may well be on its way out. Why? Well, according to a recent WGSN report, sportswear has become such a normal part of our wardrobes and shopping lists that the nomenclature has almost become invalid as an umbrella term for style-conscious activewear—despite the fact that Merriam-Webster has now officially added it to its dictionary.
So what will the (as yet not re-named) sporty-stylish stuff you can wear anytime, any day, look like next year? Well, existing fitness brands continue to increase their offering, while fashion labels are doing more than dipping a toe in—see Fendi. Chic start-up workout labels catering to that on- and off-duty market are springing up by the dozen: Monreal London, Laain and Live the Process are some buzzy names to know. And let's not forget a particularly mainstream—and exciting—arrival due in April from Beyoncé at Topshop, which has been dubbed as athleisure in its entirety.
