Part One

The NY version of the sports-yoga-workout wear focused Active Collective had loads of terrific athletic style-that anyone would wear on or off the courts, in a gym, or outdoors on weekend downtime.

IMO-athleisure is a permanent lifestyle apparel category...and we saw plenty of multi-tasking pieces made from tech fabrics for Fall 2017-in subdued autumnal colors, fewer prints (than what we have seen for Spring)-but interestingly enough...a bunch of bold black/white items at several exhibitors.

MPG (MODETTA PERFORMANCE GEAR) started as a fashion savvy- dancer focused collection of studio separates to wear off th barre- but has grown into a brand for athletes pursuing various activities-with performance pieces for runners, gym-heads, yoga buffs and dancers---and comfy casual wear that also doubles as versatile travel pieces.
In the front-cozy long knit cardigan for woman-belt it for wearing to an office-or keep it loose for downtime comfort, In back tech jacket for guys-atop base layer in fun take on camo.. Women's collab with Julianne Hough-featuring a fashionable edge to active wear pieces-continues.
we would wear this on a bike...removable sleeves-attached with magnets, reflective pops, wind/water resistant

capris-good for gym goers-yoga fiends, cycle enthusiasts-or runners-stretchy moisture wicking material-in b/w bold print...wide waistband is flattering and comfy

insulated core jacket-wear everyday-- on a hike or could run in it too, Hemmed waistband- sleeves keeps cold out, drawstring  fixed hood.

Love this pale pink color-cozy blend with the comfort of cotton-warmth of a poly. Shaped for feminine fit with flattering seams.

RHONE's fitness-active-wear apparel for men-is expanding their performance SKUs with these terrific stretchy, moisture wicking shorts with inner compressive liner...available in a new shorter length...than typical board shorts.

For cooler temps or just hanging out-drawstring pants have a lot of thoughtful details in the design...and  is made of top of the line Polartec Power Stretch Pro-warmth, great skin feel, moisture wicking stretch, easy care.
pocket is bonded zipper-saves weight- is functional -looks cool too.

Polartec Power Grid-patented lightweight bi-component grid construction is highly breathable and  diffuses next-to skin moisture vapor for clammy free wear-in active output activities...superior wicking also is key in cold weather...for when heartbeat slows down but still wearing this versatile zip mid-layer.
