Thanks to Lululemon’s twitter shade throw down with Beyonce regarding her new athletic line called Ivy Park, I’ve been made aware that Beyonce has a new athletic line called Ivy Park. Haha! I would never have known about her new line otherwise so I think Bae will probably say ‘Thank you! No hard feelings’.
Here are the tweets if you weren’t up to speed on them.
On to the actual line. It’s very minimal and Adidas esque which I’m quite drawn to lately. I don’t know if you’ve noticed but I’ve been really gravitating to blacks and greys and high contrast items lately in most of my Lululemon purchases and I’ve also been interested in a lot of the new Nike and Adidas Original pieces I’m seeing. For some reason, the more basic and none fashiony the pieces are, the more fashionable they are and more street versatile. Just Do It tanks with skinny jeans and high heels looks a lot more edgy than a Lighten Up Tank (or whatever feminine tank) worn with the same combination of street wear. My closet is quite saturated with functional technical pieces so when I shop these days I’m looking for things that integrate well outside of the gym. Since Nordstrom will be carrying this line I definitely plan on trying it out. What do you guys think of the Lululemon vs. Beyonce Shade? Do you like what you’re seeing so far from Ivy Park?
You can definitely see the Adidas inspiration here. These look just like the Adidas Superstar Slides. Did you know Adidas makes these slides in an all back Faux Pony hair? I’m after those.
