Activewear is on a hot streak, with the market predicted to be worth Dhs one trillion this year. Between the popularisation of hybrid work settings and a newfound appreciation for wellness culture, there is a vested interest in activewear that extends well beyond the court. With so much buzz around the athleisure style of clothing, it tracks that compelling collaborations are launched regularly between sportswear brands and entities like Coca-Cola, pop stars like Dua Lipa and high fashion labels such as Gucci or Jacquemus. With each coming collaboration, we see active wear transformed in fresh new ways, which has been keeping the style at the forefront of fashion for the past few years. Ahead, the top activewear collaborations that prove athletic apparel doesn’t just dominate on the court.
