For the past year, Derek Lam has impressed both style mavens and the sweat-obsessed alike with his sporty-chic fitness fashion collaboration with Athleta. Which makes the summer collection—out this week—bittersweet. Because on the one hand, florals! On the other, it’s his last for the activewear brand.
Which means that you’ll want to stock up now, because there won’t be a later. Besides the aforementioned florals (which, regardless of what Miranda Priestly might say, really are groundbreaking considering he hadn’t incorporated them into his Athleta pieces before), the collection also features A-line dresses to throw on after yoga, incredibly cool grosgrain ribbon-trimmed shorts that serve double duty with their hidden runner’s liner, and breathable, mesh tops in solid and striped designs that will keep you dry on even the most humid summer days.
Scroll down to see our favorite looks from the collection, and let us know your favorite look in the poll below—we’re dying to know!
Those florals would look real good in the plank position (just saying…).
