The athleisure pieces make their debut in motion.
Earlier this year, Jonathan Simkhai and Carbon38 joined forces for an athleisure collection that was the ultimate mashup of runway meets yoga studio. Following the success of the inaugural collaboration, the brands are back with a second installment for Fall/Winter 2017.
Featuring 22 pieces, the latest Jonathan Simkhai x Carbon38 collection combines the sporty-meets-sexy aesthetic of Simkhai’s namesake brand with Carbon38’s signature luxe take on activewear. The end result? A collection spanning beyond your standard sports bras and leggings, instead delving into plush cropped flares, belted t-shirts, and lace-up detailing. Most impressively, however, the collaboration managed to transform a corset into an activewear staple reimagined in the form of sports bras and tank tops.
“My goal is to empower women to lead their active lives in style with pieces that make them feel feminine and unstoppable. Partnering with Carbon38 was a natural step as they understood and embraced my aesthetic. I’m thrilled to have created a collection with them that marries sensual silhouettes with pragmatic fabrics,” Simkhai said in a statement from the brand.
