Feel Good With Zara’s Debut Sports Line for SS 2016

Zara has finally unveiled its debut sports line for the spring/summer 2016 seasons, and it feels really good. Literally. The debut of the Zara sport collection is surely a long-awaited one, as the fast-fashion retailer has always included a good amount of fitness-related pieces within its main lines without ever launching a separate athleisure/sports collection. As many of you may have noticed so far, Zara kind of made us think a sports line was about to happen, increasing the number of fitness-related proposals as the months passed by until the final announcement made less than a month ago.

Zara’s sports line is, however, a bittersweet celebration, as Inditex has already announced that we should consider the Feel Good collection as a one-time offering (it won’t however stop us from hoping Zara will change their mind soon) probably along with the Ungendered collection, which is currently hitting the headlines all over the world (both in a good and in a bad way. Many are not that happy to see the Ungendered collection available in the women’s section, as genderless attire is meant to be, well, gender-less). As for the gym line, the Spanish retailer is just one of the many brands that took their time to dip their toes into the fitness/athleisure waters, aiming not only at expanding their territories but, who knows, also at trying to figure out whether there’s enough room in their stores to add another official department or not.

As the captions say, Zara’s SS 2016 gym collection wants us not only to feel good, but also new, pure and especially bold, as most of the pieces could be equally regarded as cozy pieces to wear while working out or as fancy casual-chic proposals for a weekend outing. Predominantly utilizing black, gray and white, the collection also features delicate touches of neon colors, such as yellow and pink, to add a cheerful touch to the designs and to embrace the seasonal trends.

Overall relaxed, Zara’s sports collection is, however, incredibly clean both in lines and cuts, as most of the pieces got clearly spiced up with some athleisure vibes as well. That’s for example the case for the roomy sweatshirts, hoodies and see-through windbreakers, the latter of which probably are the most relatable ready-to-wear meets athleisure pieces in the collection. Crop-tops, mid-calf and long leggings will be anyone’s new best friends while working out at the gym, while billowy pants and varsity jackets will make all those who can’t get enough of casual street-style aesthetics giggle with joy.
