Activewear line P.E Nation only made its debut in 2015, but supermodel Elle Macpherson, plus a slew of stylish cool girls, are already sporting the Aussie line known for its bright colors and graphic blocking. You know who else is a fan? SoulCycle. The chic boutique spin studio just teamed up with the label from Down Under to create a capsule collection of activewear that’ll have you pushing “add to cart” almost too quickly.
But it’s not like this is either brand’s first trip to the collaboration rodeo. Most recently, SoulCycle partnered with fashion label Public School on an edgy, downtown collection featuring a mix of activewear and athleisure. P.E Nation launched a sell-out collaboration with Reebok in 2017, with a second collection to launch in February. “But SoulCycle is the first brand we have collaborated with in the functional space,” says Claire Tregoning, one of the label’s founders. “We’ve taken all of our best P.E Nation pieces that support high-intensity, muscle-sculpting training and given them a SoulCycle twist.” To that end, the capsule features 12 pieces including three crop tops, a few pairs of sporty leggings, plus accessories including a tote bag and baseball cap.
“We’ve taken all of our best P.E Nation pieces that support high-intensity, muscle-sculpting training and given them a SoulCycle twist.”
“What we really love about both the aesthetic and quality of the brand behind SoulCycle is community and spirit,” says co-founder Pip Edwards. “SoulCycle is about living your best life on and off the bike, supporting, encouraging, and inspiring its riders. We hope that P.E Nation does the same for our customer and theirs, too.”
Sadly for P.E’s co-founders, there isn’t a SoulCycle in Australia—yet, at least. “We need one here,” says Edwards. “We would love to see the movement and that passionate experience hit Australia.” For now though, Tregoning and Edwards are more than satisfied with seeing their slick activewear at its studios
“We were so excited to develop the line because at P.E Nation, we’re driven by high-quality design and product innovation—a synergy we share with SoulCycle,” Tregoning says. Think of it as more proof that Australia’s taking over the entire wellness scene.
