Sportswear has gone way beyond the realm of sports. Today, the intersection of comfort, style and function has become the holy grail for activewear, as we seek clothing that is as versatile as it is chicly functional. The result, thanks to technological advances in fabrics and designs, is sportswear that performs for dedicated athletes, but works just as well for casual gym-goers who like to go to brunch in the same outfit.
At Lane Crawford, we champion brands that seamlessly merge innovative technology with uncompromisingly modern, fashion-forward design. Our performance range includes some of the most coveted functional activewear brands, with pieces balancing immaculate design with sophisticated, technical details such as anti-wrinkling and stain resistant fabrics. Together, they represent the pinnacle of high-function, durability and style in athleisure.
Our selection from Melbourne-based 2XU, for instance, has been worn by world-champion athletes, who thrive in its state-of-the-art compression technology woven flawlessly into sleek and minimal design. 2XU’s most popular item, compression tights, provide exceptional muscle protection while also helping blood circulation. The company’s tops are just as performance-focused, with UV protection, antibacterial and moisture-management features providing everything you could need from activewear.
Compression leggings are also one of the hero items for Lucas Hugh, an athletic-wear brand founded by Anjhe Mules (a former swimwear designer). Such is their pedigree, Lucas Hugh’s leggings are produced in the same factory that makes racing swimsuits for Olympic athletes. The stripes in its Lazer Stripe Leggings provide a dynamic, graphic element while also boasting reinforced stitching that allows for optimal ventilation. The brand’s fashionable performance apparel was thrust into the limelight when Jennifer Lawrence’s Katniss Everdeen was featured in its chic bodysuits in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.
Meanwhile, our selections from LNDR include casual activewear that can just as easily fit into your everyday life, including cropped trackpants and loose-fitting T-shirts. While maintaining a cool, urban edge, these clothes also feature innovative performance details including sweat wicking and quick-dry technology. High-fashion and high-performance – with our carefully curated selection, you can have the best of both worlds.
