On trend Athleisure shows no signs of slowing down. Combining comfort with style, it’s the perfect choice for busy women who can pull off a less formal work-to-gym look that takes them from morning to night.
Athleisure is the obvious comfort choice for work, weekends, and even dressier occasions. The key to pulling it off is to accessorise and choose pieces that are well-made and versatile. What brands are best in Asia?
Our Favourite Athleisure Brands
Outfyt, started by Stephanie Colhag Yeo in Singapore, offers a wide selection of pieces influenced by Scandinavian design. The designs are clean and simple, minimalist and functional. Outfyt is an eco-luxe sustainable activewear brand, which uses ECONYL® Regenerated Nylon. The sustainable fabric is made by recovering nylon waste — such as fishing nets or fabric scraps — and turning it into virgin quality nylon yarn.
Indigo Luna specializes in yoga wear, swimwear, and linen. Produced in Bali, Indonesia, the brand is owned and operated by an Australian family. Indigo Luna is passionate about ensuring quality, supply chain transparency, eco-consciousness, and sustainable manufacturing practices. Because of this, everything in the collection is naturally dyed and made from natural fibers, including ECONYL®, a regenerated plastic material produced from ocean trash. The collections are manufactured in small batches, with the intent to sell out entirely, minimizing waste. We hope that you find your new favorite workout outfit!
Based in Kuala Lumpur Malaysia, Livlola was founded by sisters Sim Li and Heidi. Their activewear, loungewear, and fitness essentials are all carefully crafted and made to inspire fitness and environmental consciousness. The brand uses recycled nylon fabric that is made from pre- & post-consumer materials such as industrial fishing nets. This diverts waste from landfills and oceans. The production of regenerated nylon uses much fewer resources. We are able to save barrels of crude oil and tons of CO2 eq. emissions from entering the atmosphere.
With a mission to inspire young, active people in urban areas, Future Relics shares inspirational content with its wellness community in Manila. The brand offers suggested running routes you can follow and is currently working on opening new studios in central hubs.
Using ethically sourced fabrics, Future Relics' clothing is made in close cooperation with local factories. The crossback bra is its bestseller. It features washable pads and a four-way stretch fabric that dries instantly. For the tights, ventilated mesh details are added on the sides and near the calves, giving it a premium look.
When it comes to clean lines and warm pastel palettes, we think of Girlsnation. Whether it’s their newest GN-T bra in jam that comes with their signature luxe-feeling elastic band and cross-front design or their Astra Capri in colours like blush, you can never go wrong with this stylishly classic brand. Girlsnation masters the art of monochromatic workout outfits in every way. Their designs extend your life beyond pilates, yoga, and fitness to your everyday leisure.
- Throw on a jacket, nice shoes and statement ring, necklace or glasses
- All black ensembles with plain, even severe lines and cut-out details give your outfit a slightly more edgy, minimalist look.
- Longer, structured or waterfall cardis and a swish clutch laptop file sends out the right “in the zone” vibes
- Heels and a topknot switch you up from too-casual into relaxed, fun date mode.
- Cardis and shirt layers get you dinner and movie ready instantly.
- Colour. Think cropped denim jacket, patterned cardi or even a flared, tiered skirt or dungaree skirt over the athleisure tights.
