Athleta's First-Ever Designer Collab Is With Derek Lam

Athleta and Derek Lam‘s contemporary collection, Derek Lam 10 Crosby, are collaborating on a new athleisure line. Aka, the comfiest, most stylish athletic clothing you’ll never want to take off.

This kind of a collab is a first for both brands: Athleta has never teamed up with a designer before, and it marks Derek Lam’s first foray into the world of athletic wear. He told WWD

With all the awareness of how people are using that category of clothing in their everyday lives, I thought it was an interesting proposition…I kept questioning what seemed gratuitous. Like, you don’t need another sports brand, so how do I make the pieces work easily into her everyday wardrobe?

Given the brief glimpse we have into what the collection will offer, it seems he has succeeded in melding everyone’s favorite loungewear and work-appropriate pieces. The color scheme will be more subdued than Athleta’s usual palette and includes washable leather pieces, technical denim and classic workout gear, such as leggings and a bra top.

The best part? It’s all pretty affordable given the high-profile nature of the designers: The entire collection ranges from $58-$388 for a leather jacket. The only downside? You have to wait until September for the line to launch in Athleta and Derek Lam’s 10 Crosby stores. We’ll just keep outfit planning until then.

Can’t wait another seven months? Athleta has some pretty great clothes you can shop now.
