The term “athleisure” is certainly on the rise this year with more fashion brands taking into consideration the consumer’s desire of living an active trendy lifestyle. Fitness apparel company, Athleta has just announced their first-ever collaboration with designer Derek Lam with his contemporary line, Derek Lam 10 Crosby to launch Fall 2015. The collection will merge Lam’s signature minimalistic aesthetic and femininity with Athleta’s performance fabrics and fitness appeal.
