Nepalese designer Prabal Gurung has launched his first activewear line in collaboration with Bandier. The 12-piece collection uses technical fabrics that can be worn for sport, but are also designed to be regular streetwear. Garments include a bomber and motorcycle jackets, and run between $140 and $395.
He uses one of his classic prints—the "kaleidoscope" motif—that was made famous by Beyoncé, on leggings, a sports bra, and a T-shirt.
Gurung also points out that many activewear lines don't come in a wide array of sizes and he wanted to avoid that in his collection. "Without putting a confine on shape or size, our woman values herself and her body," he says. "We felt it was extremely important to offer a wider size range, from XS to XXL, as size options in the active space can be more limiting."
