The marriage between Kate Spade New York and Beyond Yoga first took place in January 2016. Good news for the girly yoga practitioners, because now, the limited-edition athleisure collaboration between the two brands has officially reached our shores. Not all colour ranges are available in the stores right now as compared to the US (sobs), but there's still a good mix of solid pieces, colour-blocking patterns and flower-printed designs to choose from.
With the most defining trait of Kate Spade incorporated into the designs -- the signature bow, that is -- other fanatics of this New York lifestyle giant will know at a glance that you're wearing Kate Spade's yoga stuff. A range of tank-tops and bras feature this cinched motif on the back in a sophisticated manner, made all the more playful with a little open back peep as well. The black pullover keeps it sexy in a discreet way, with a bow that holds all the cut-outs in place. Sweatpants too sport the bow despite their seemingly basic silhouette, with the ribbed bow on the hem cuffs.
With the mention of Kate Spade, you'd think the leggings, tops, pants, jackets, bras and skirts in their yoga collection would be ultra-feminine, but some pieces are basic, yet cool enough for you to easily take to the streets from the studio. Made with the ridiculously comfortable Supplex fabric, the feel of their yoga wear is ultra-soft, yet stretches and retains its shape after every wash. With the main colour palette being black, your colour matching game won't be a headache, although flowers in raspberry tones are available for those who want something more splashy. On the sweet side, lilac is one of the dominant colours in this collection, a saccharine yet fresh sight for the eyes on top of feeling good after your rounds of Ashtanga.
