Blending fashionable design with highly functional details, H&M’s new activewear collection is also made in sustainable materials. Function with a purpose! Inspired by nature and strong women, “In in for the long run” includes a versatile range of tights, sports bras, hoodies and tops for training, running and yoga. There is an emphasis on nature and sustainability, through the prints and the colour palette of green tones, black and beige. Each piece is made of recycled polyester and elastane, providing exceptional fit for the very active women. The garments have functional details such as being quick-dry and seamless for maximum comfort, plus built-in support and holes for ventilation. Designs are fresh, figure-flattering and fashion-forward with contrast panelling, criss-cross backs and decorative webbing. The result is a truly modern activewear collection that reflects the importance of conscious fashion today.
“By bringing together the functional and feminine, the aim is to give customers a stylish, conscious sports collection. And not just through the fabrics – we utilised a new knitting technique that creates seamless garments while using less yarn or fabric waste. Blending function with sustainable thinking and fashion in this way is the way forward,” says Petra Smeds, Head Designer of sportswear.
This collection also characterizes H&M’s continued commitment to sustainability and is just one of the several steps H&M is making towards their overall goal of becoming 100% circular. Ultimately, H&M want to create a closed loop for textiles in which unwanted clothes can be reused or recycled into new treasures.
You can now buy the collection internationally at selected stores and online.
